Barron Trump’s height became a hot-button topic in New York City this week when residents saw him walking with his mother, Melania. Donald’s youngest son towered over his mom. His height? A whopping 6-foot-7!
The 15-year-old son to Donald and Melania Trump is an impressive 6-foot-7, taller than his mom 5-foot-11. It would seem the nickname “Little Donald,” given to him by his father, and former president Donald Trump no longer has any relevance.
It’s in the family! Donald Trump’s height is 6-foot-3 and earlier this year he joked, ““Barron is 6-foot-7, can you believe it? And he’s 15,” Trump said. “Eric is short — he’s only 6-foot-6,” he said of his 37-year-old son, who was previously the tallest in the family.
Barron Trump has always been scrutinized by Americans from both sides of the political aisle. Back in 2019 it wasn’t his height that was in the spotlight. It was his journey on Air Force One with the former President and First Lady. Two years later Americans are still fascinated by the former President’s very tall son.
Born in 2006, Barron Trump has retained a very low public profile, especially compared to Donald Jr., Ivanka, Eric and Tiffany Trump. That is reportedly because Melania wanted him out of the spotlight.
Little is known of the 15-year-old, except for what Donald and Melania Trump have told the press.
After his father became President, Barron remained in NYC and attended Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School in New York. The elite school has boasted famous alumni such as The Breakfast Club’s Ally Sheedy and Buffy The Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar.
In 2017, however, Barron moved west to the White House with his mother Melania and then attended St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in suburban Maryland.
Last year, Barron Trump had to grow up quickly when he tested positive for Covid-19. The former President dismissed his teenaged son’s contraction of the disease, with his mother adding that he only had the Coronavirus, “for like, two seconds.”
Donald Trump seemed to get emotional, releasing a statement saying, “”Our First Lady, she put out that Barron has tested positive. And I said, ‘Wow,’ and we talked about it, and I said, ‘You put it out there’ … And, you know, it’s like personal stuff.”
Both the former First Lady and former President testing positive for the virus back in October 2020, as well. That month, a video of Donald Trump went viral as it showed him struggling to breathe during a maskless photo-up.
