Melania Trump and young son, Barron, will not be moving into the White House. When Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th president of the United States on Friday, Jan. 20th in Washington D. C., all his family will be there. But come that Monday, it appears they won’t be staying with him in the White House.
Both New York Post and TMZ.com are reporting that the 46-year-old future first lady and the couple’s 10-year-old son will not be making the move to the nation’s capital and will stay at Trump Tower in New York City to allow Barron to continue at his private school on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
FOCUS ON SON
According to the Post, Melania “will travel to the White House as needed” and “her primary focus is on Barron.” The two may make the move to Washington after the end of the school year, the paper added, but at this time “no plans are in place.” TMZ.com published a similar report saying Melania and Barron are staying put.
Jason Miller, communications director for the Trump Transition Team, addressed the report Sunday morning, telling reporters that while the team had no formal statement on the matter, “there’s obviously sensitivity” around the issue of pulling Barron out of school in the middle of the academic year.
Trump himself may not spend all of his time in the White House, either.
