Barron Trump Is Happy That He's Staying Out In NYC
There has been a lot of noise since Donald Trump's win in the presidential race. Adding to that is the Trumps' decision to stay based in Manhattan even after the president-elect's inauguration in January.
This means the youngest Trump, Barron, will not need to change schools - at least until he finishes his school year. He and mother Melania will not be joining Donald Trump in the White House but will continue to live in their Trump Tower penthouse instead.
"Like any parents, they are concerned about pulling their 10-year-old son out of school in the middle of the year," a Trump spokesman said.
In Melania's interview with the US Weekly, she shared that she told her son not to stress about leaving his New York City life. "At that age, it's hard to explain to them," Melania said.
Of course, at that age, every child would worry, especially if they love school, if they love friends, they don't want to lose that. Everything is a new opportunity and it brings new friends and a new school. You never know, you never know what happens. Enjoy it day by day, live your life and don't stress yourself," she added.
While Barron may be relieved not having to move immediately, not everyone seems to feel happy about it.
There is a growing anxiety among parents at the elite Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School. Parents are expressing their concern about Barron staying put in the $45,000 per year private school.
Some are worried about security, seeing the possibility of kidnappings. While there are also some who expressed disapproval of having Secret Service staff around, the others complain about the inconvenience of an increased traffic near the school.
Parents also noted that the Trumps' decision not to move shows "lack of regard for others as well as lack of respect for the protocol."
