Where is Barron Trump now? Rare sighting of Donald's son towering over mother Melania
Barron donned a plain black shirt which was tucked into his blue jeans. He was carrying his mum's limited edition orange Louis Vuitton bag
Barron Trump, 16, towered over his mother, Melania Trump, as the duo was seen making their way out of Trump Tower in New York City on Wednesday, June 7. The teenager has clearly had a recent growth spurt as he towered over the former first lady, who is reportedly 5 feet 11 inches tall.
The mother-of-one carried a $11,000 black Hermes Birkin bag, while dressed in her stylish best - a black button-down shirt with white pants and matching $645 Louboutin pointy-toe flats. Barron donned a plain black shirt which was tucked into his blue jeans. He was carrying his mum's limited edition orange Louis Vuitton bag.
Barron: The Tallest Trump
Currently standing at 6-foot-7 inches tall, Barron is taller than any of his half siblings and his dad. Former President Donald Trump is reportedly either 6 foot 3 inches or 6 foot 2 inches tall. The ex-POTUS proudly boasted about his youngest son's height at the North Carolina GOP convention last month. Previously Eric Trump was the tallest Trump of the lot, standing at 6 feet 5 inches, followed by Donald Trump Jr at 6 feet 1 inch. Ivanka Trump stands at 5 feet 11 inches while Tiffany Trump is 5 feet 8 inches tall.
Trumps in New York?
Melania and Barron were spotted by the paparazzi just three days after the former president was seen arriving at the Fifth Avenue residence. He chose to visit his home state after a rally in Sarasota, Florida on Saturday, July 3. Melania and Barron were not seen accompanying him when he waved to a group of supporters that had gathered outside the Trump Tower.
Before he was elected president, the Trump family were largely based in Manhattan. Most of the family members shifted their base to Florida, with Trump and Melania relocating to the president's resort in Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach after leaving the White House in January. Since then, the couple has been keeping a fairly low profile. Author Michael Wolff writes in his upcoming book, 'Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency,' it is unclear how often the former FLOTUS actually stays at the resort or whether she living with her husband. "Maybe Melania lives here," he writes. "For four years in the White House, it was never quite clear how much time she was spending at the White House or in a house in Maryland where she had settled her parents."
The former first couple's trip to NYC also comes days after the Trump Organization's chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg was indicted last week on "sweeping and audacious" tax and fraud charges, with prosecutors alleging that he took a total of $1.7 million in perks and compensation and failed to declare the same in tax filings. Trump has slammed the indictment claiming New York had "taken over" the "witch hunt" against him, calling the charges a "disgrace" motivated by politics. "The political Witch Hunt by the Radical Left Democrats, with New York now taking over the assignment, continues. It is dividing our Country like never before!" he said in a statement.
