Barron Trump's absence during former President Donald Trump's final speech during his farewell at the Joint Base Andrews on Wednesday was widely spoken about. The teenager was a notable absentee as he was not present on the tarmac while his older siblimgs watched their father deliver his final address. Donald Trump Jr was emotional during his father's speech. Trump family members present included Ivanka Trump, her husband Jared Kushner, Trump Jr., his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, Eric Trump, his wife Lara Trump and Tiffany Trump, who was with her new new fiancé, Michael Boulos. Barron, however, was not seen even when Melania and Trump exited the White House for the last time. To answer the question of where Barron was, the 14-year-old was aboard Air Force one, according to the reporters on the flight. The family left Washingtin DC and headed for Trump's private club in Florida. MEAWW had earlier covered reactions on Twitter which had contrasting opinons about where the young kid was.
Some blamed Melania for "leaving" his teenage son behind as an internet user tweeted, "Melania as always too busy to care for anything other than fashion or hair-Tiffany got in one last shot to let the world know she’d be tying the knot-& Barron, poor Barron, he’s only a child-From NY to DC to FL, exiled." For now. the Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach is supposed to be the family's new home while Melania has reportedly been looking at schools in the area for the teen.
Earlier, it was reported that Tiffany was looking for a house at the South Beach area. Tiffany was keen on buying a condo or a house in Miami's South Beach that is known for its exuberant nightlife. Although she has been reportedly staying in the same area for a while now with her boyfriend, Michael Boulos, she's looking for properties with him, one of the sources told Page Six. Ivanka Trump and Kushner have purchased a whopping $30 million vacant lot that was close to his brother, Josh, and pregnant wife Karlie Kloss's house.
Taking the stage to a soundtrack straight from his campaign trail, Trump delivered a speech that was constantly complimented and cheered upon by the crowd. He started off by thanking the crowd and his family for all the services they had offered the country. The ceremony began with a military band playing "Hail to the chief" and a 21-gun salute.
"People have no idea how hard this family has worked, they worked hard for you," he said. "I want to thank you for your effort, your hard work - people have no idea how hard this family worked and they worked for you. They could have had a much easier life but they did a fantastic job."
He also gave the stage briefly to Melania, who said, "Being your First Lady was my greatest honor. Thank you for your love and support. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you all, God bless your families and God bless this beautiful nation," she said.
