Barron Trump Declines RNC Delegate Position

( – Social media was buzzing on May 8 after multiple media outlets revealed that 18-year-old Barron Trump was selected as a delegate for the 2024 Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. However, the excitement was short-lived.

Former First Lady Melania Trump’s office told one media outlet that her son had “prior commitments” that would prevent him from participating. Her office also said that he was “honored to have been chosen” by the Republican Party of Florida.

Former President Trump remarked on Barron Trump’s interest in politics during a radio interview on May 10, noting that his youngest son frequently advises him on political decisions. Three of Trump’s other children, including Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, and Tiffany Trump, are participating in the convention as delegates at large for Florida. Barron Trump’s parents have largely kept him out of the spotlight, but he has been a hot topic of conversation in recent weeks. Judge Juan Merchan, the judge presiding over the Stormy Daniels hush money trial, threatened to force Trump to miss Barron Trump’s high school graduation, but ultimately conceded the date to be an off day for the trial.

It remains to be seen if Barron Trump will be more active in his father’s political career, especially since he is now an adult. His college plans have not been revealed, but if his father wins another term in the White House, he will undoubtedly be targeted by the media, just as Trump’s other adult children have been over the last nine years. Melania Trump’s involvement in her husband’s campaign has increased recently but will likely pick up even more after the summer months when Barron Trump will likely head off to college.

The race for the White House heated up on May 15 when Biden and Trump finally set two dates to debate one another, with the first coming up on June 27 hosted by CNN. ABC will host the second debate on September 10.
