Donald Trump reportedly did not want to watch son Barron being born

 January 28, 2024

In a recently unearthed interview, details have emerged about former U.S. President Donald Trump's distant approach to parenting, revealing that he opted to be "hands-off" and was absent during the birth of his youngest son, Barron.

This interview, dating back to 2006, offers a glimpse into Trump's parenting style as recounted by his wife, Melania.

The interview

At seven months pregnant, Melania shared the news of her pregnancy with Trump in August of the previous year.

While Melania conveyed that Trump appeared surprised but pleased, Trump, then 59, remembered the revelation differently, stating that he wasn't "totally surprised," but rather slightly taken aback by the swiftness of the development.

A interview from 18 years ago disclosed that despite enjoying shared activities like going to the cinema, the couple maintained a degree of independence.

The reaction

Melania, occupied with preparations for the impending arrival, expressed confidence in Trump's potential as a father.

Trump, who has recently undergone deposition for a civil fraud trial, admitted to not being a hands-on parent, a sentiment Melania seemed to accept, noting almost two decades ago, "I don't expect him to walk down Fifth Avenue with a stroller."

Concerning the imminent birth, the couple kept the baby's gender a secret, and Melania hired a full-time nanny to aid with Barron, aligning with her plans to resume her modeling career.

The final decision

A mutual agreement between the couple dictated that Donald would not be present in the delivery room for Barron's arrival.

Trump explained, "I think it's easier for Melania if I'm not there." Recent footage captured a distinct change in Trump's demeanor during a seven-hour deposition related to the New York civil suit.

In this footage, he characterized the lawsuit, initiated by New York Attorney General Letitia James, as "a terrible thing."

Trump's latest

The deposition unfolded with Trump, sporting his characteristic frown, spending seven hours behind closed doors, responding to inquiries.

He expressed disbelief at the lawsuit, questioning the completeness of payments to the banks involved, underscoring the profitability for the banks, and expressing incredulity at being sued on behalf of these financial institutions.

"It's crazy, the whole case is crazy," the former president goes on. "You said the numbers were very 'wrong,' in the sense that I defrauded banks by using them but then the banks were fully paid, and had no complaints and to this day have no complaints," Trump said.

"You sued me. What you did was a terrible thing," he stated regarding the case.

The footage highlighted the contrast in Trump's disposition, encapsulating the contentious legal environment surrounding him.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
