#12. Barron Trump Attends St Andrews Episcopal School
While every president's child over the past 35 years has attended Sidwell Friends, the White House has confirmed Barron is attending St. Andrew's in Potomac, Maryland. He is the first presidential child to do so. In a statement, Melania praised the school for 'its diverse community and commitment to academic excellence.'
#11. Barron Trump Has A Creative Spark
What might not be immediately obvious about Barron Trump is his creative streak, a trait First Lady Melania Trump revealed in a chat with Parenting magazine in 2012. Melania shared a sweet anecdote to illustrate her claim, recalling an especially impressive moment of free play when Barron was young. "His imagination is growing and important," Melania said at the time (via Redbook). "He draws on the walls in his playroom, we can paint it over. One day he was playing bakery and he wrote Barron's Bakery on the wall with crayons. He is very creative, if you say to a child no, no, no, where does the creativity go?" How cute it's clear Barron was a very imaginative tyke.
#10. Melania Trump Intends To Keep Barron Trump Out Of The Spotlight
Since Barron Trump's official appearances have been limited to traditional first family events like Inauguration Day festivities and the White House Easter Egg Roll, it seems like Donald and Melania Trump intend to uphold the tradition of keeping kids of first families mostly out of the public eye.
That plan seems to be firmly in place, as of this writing, at least, according to the Washington Examiner which reported in December 2018 that Barron "rarely appears in public with his parents." Speaking with Fox News' Sean Hannity around the same time, Melania said that even though Barron isn't living "a normal life" since the family's move to Washington D.C., he is "enjoying" it there. She also said her efforts to "protect" him from public scrutiny are required to "give him the childhood he deserves."
#9. Barron Trump Is Fluent In Two Languages
Although he reportedly takes after his father, Barron Trump has also inherited his mother's roots as well. According to a 2016 interview with GQ magazine, Melania Trump revealed that Barron "speaks Slovenian fluently."

#8. Barron Trump May Have Gotten Flavored E Cigs Banned
United States President Donald Trump said that he and First Lady Melania Trump have asked their 13-year son Barron to not vape. He further said that they have warned their son about the health hazards of vaping. The US President made the statement on the lawn of the White House while responding to the question of a reporter on the evening of September 12. He also said that they told Barron that they don't like the feeling of him vaping and have repeatedly told him not to vape.
Earlier, the Trump administration had announced that it would ban the sale of vaping liquids used in e-cigarettes as they have been allegedly used by different companies as a marketing strategy that specifically targets children.
With the Food and Drug Administration ban coming into effect, organizations wanting to sell e-cigarettes will have to ask for official permits that would, in turn, allow them to sell their products. The entire process to get federal approvals may stretch to more than a year.
#7. Melania Trump Calls Barron Trump Mini Donald
Given that he loves to wear suits and moisturize his skin with caviar, it should surprise exactly no one that Melania Trump often refers to her only son as "little Donald" and "mini-Donald." "He is a very strong-minded, very special, smart boy," Melania told Parenting (via Redbook). "He is independent and opinionated and knows exactly what he wants. Sometimes I call him little Donald. He is a mixture of us in looks, but his personality is why I call him little Donald."
In a 2013 interview with ABC News, Melania again referred to Barron as "mini-Donald," which if we're being honest, has to sting a little for Barron's older half-brother, the actual Donald Jr.
#6. Donald Trump Didnt Change Barron Trumps Diapers
In that same interview with Parenting (via Redbook) Melania Trump said of her husband, "He didn't change diapers and I am completely fine with that. It is not important to me.
