Being the First Family can’t be an easy task; while the President has nearly always faced backlash, it’s his 11-year-old son, Barron, that faces major criticism.
Barron Trump is only 11-years-old, which is something people tend to forget, especially when they disagree with his father’s policies and actions. As a child, Barron has been attacked for his father’s actions and now, his mother and sister have had enough.
Hollywood Life reported in May 2018 that Barron was repeatedly bullied at school for “his father’s current problems.” As any son would do, Barron tried to defend his father against his peers, however, the bullying doesn’t stop.
Ivanka is Barron’s big sister and one of her father’s staffers. As the President’s aide, his daughter, and an adult, Ivanka is more than capable of defending herself. However, her 11-year-old brother is still a child- and the last thing he should have to do his defend himself for someone else’s decisions.
During an interview (that has since been taken down from the internet), Ivanka shared her thoughts after Barron had been made fun of online for wearing a t-shirt that read “The Expert.” She shared, “I think talking about an 11-year-old’s T-shirt, or pants, or attire … he’s a young boy trying his best to acclimate in a surreal environment.”
Ivanka continued saying, “Melania and my father are trying to make that transition as seamless as possible in difficult circumstances,” she added. “Barron should be off limits.” Considering Barron is just 11-years-old, I couldn’t agree more.
Please pray for Barron- Growing up can be hard enough. Keep Barron in your prayers as he’s just a child.
