Ivanka Trump has come to the rescue of her 10-year-old brother, Barron Trump, after days of controversy and negative attention from some of the new president’s critics. Monday, the mother of three posted a cute video on Twitter where Donald Trump’s son can be seen interacting with Theodore, Ivanka’s 9-month-old child. The clip was filmed on Friday as the 45th president was signing his first executive order after taking the oath of office. The touching video offers more insight into the personality of the only child that Mr. Trump has with his current wife, Melania.
Here is the caption used by the businesswoman: “My youngest brother proves he’s a baby whisperer—while my father signs his first executive orders.” This was the first statement made by a member of the Trump family regarding Barron after the media firestorm that started around him after appearing at the inauguration.
Saturday Night Live writer Katie Rich got suspended after she had made a tasteless joke about Barron and people like Chelsea Clinton had to take a stand on his behalf. The Clinton daughter was also on the receiving end of many mean jokes when she was living in the White House over 20 years ago. Media personalities from all sides of the political spectrum came out to say that it was not okay for an adult to go after a child.

Ivanka’s video reminded those who may have forgotten, Barron is just a kid and he needs to be given space to grow. This is something that his mother seems to be focused on; she will be staying in New York to allow him to finish the school year.
