First Lady Melania Trump and Donald Trump’s 11-year-old son Barron have moved into the White House – five months after the president took office.

Melania and Barron Trump had stayed behind in New York so the president’s son could finish the school year.

The decision was seen as strange by some, as Melania Trump was the first presidential spouse in recent years not to relocate to the capital immediately.

Her predecessor, Michelle Obama, even moved to Washington early to get her daughters settled in their new school.

However, it seems Melania Trump is delighted by the move, tweeting a picture looking out across the White House lawn, marking the occasion.

The move will also no doubt be welcomed by New Yorkers, who have footed a hefty security bill keeping Melania and Barron Trump safe in Trump Tower.

Their presence in New York has also been known to create a fair few traffic problems. The New York Post warned of a potential “traffic apocalypse” if they did not make the move.

Meanwhile, President Trump – who did not acknowledge the move on his personal Twitter account – has turned his attention to eldest daughter Ivanka’s appearance on Fox and Friends on June 12.

It is not known what Ivanka Trump will be discussing.


President Donald Trump’s 11-year-old son, Barron, will attend St Andrew’s Episcopal School outside Washington when he moves into the White House this summer.

Barron Trump and his mother, Melania, are expected to leave Trump Tower in New York after the end of the current school year.

He will go to St Andrew’s Episcopal School in Maryland, where tuition costs almost $40,000 per year.

There had been questions about when the First Family would move to Washington.

First Lady Melania Trump said in a statement that St Andrew’s was “known for its diverse community and commitment to academic excellence”, adding: “We look forward to the coming school years.”

Barron Trump will be the first child of a president to attend the school, which is a 30-minute drive from the White House.

St Andrew’s has refused to comment on their newest student, citing reasons of privacy.

Former First Daughters Sasha and Malia Obama have attended Sidwell Friends, a Quaker school with campuses in Washington and Maryland.

The White House announcement comes after St Andrew’s sent a letter to parents on May 12, informing them of the First Family’s decision.

According to the Washington Post, St Andrew’s had intended to wait until the summer to make the announcement in order to stave off possible protests while school was in session.

However, after parents began to hear rumors, the school sent out a letter, prompting today’s statement from the White House.
