Despite all the threats and hate against him, Donald Trump bravely got out of his armored car to walk with his wife and youngest son, Barron, through a portion of the monumental mile to the White House. While this day marks a milestone for President Trump and this country, young Barron made history of his own that many people missed.
There have been many families who have come through the White House with daughters who have had varying degrees of publicity based on their parent’s preference and the kid’s own decisions which may have put them in the limelight. Barron has been kept back at home in New York to finish out the school year, but today, history was made when he stepped foot in D.C. with his father.
The Clintons, the Bushes, and the Obamas have all raised daughters in the White House, but Barron will be the first son to call the presidential palace home since John F. Kennedy, Jr. was in office. Although several presidents since Kennedy have had sons, none were young enough to be raised in the White House and were adults by the time their dad was elected.
By some strange coincidence, every president since 1963 has only had daughters living in the White House, so the rarity of this instance is what makes this astonishing and is why Barron will go down in the books before his 11th birthday.
