Barron Trump in the White House

Being the son of the president of the United States comes with some privileges. They may not measure up to the level of the president, but the perks are still worth talking about. Barron has been living in the White House since June 2017.


Barron is still pretty comfortable in the White House although he may not have as much space as he is used to. Back at Trump Tower in New York, Barron had a whole floor all to himself. President Trump says Barron loves computers and gadgets. In many ways, he is the local tech support for Melania and President Trump.
