Trump reveals his youngest son Barron is a 'smart one' who 'likes politics' and sometimes provides political advice

 May 11, 2024

It was reported earlier this week that Barron Trump, the youngest son of former President Donald Trump, would make his debut into the realm of politics as a delegate for Florida at the Republican National Convention in Wisconsin in July.

On the heels of that news, the father revealed that the son is a "smart one" who "likes politics" during an interview with a radio station in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on Friday, according to Breitbart.

The former president also touched on some of the rumors that have been circulating about where Barron may attend college in the fall but suggested that some of his top choices have been altered by the ongoing wave of anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian protests that have disrupted campuses across the nation over the past few weeks.

Barron is "a smart one" who "likes politics"

According to The Hill, former President Trump spoke Friday with the hosts of the "Kayal and Company" program on Philadelphia’s Talk Radio 1210 WPHT and spent a little bit of time talking about his youngest son Barron, who just turned 18 in March and is set to graduate from high school later this month.

Referencing Barron's growing interest in politics, Trump said, "He’s seen it. He doesn’t have to hear. He is a smart one. He doesn’t have to hear much. But he’s, he’s a great guy."

"He’s a little on the tall side. I will tell you, he’s a tall one, but he is a good-looking guy," the former president continued. "And he’s really been a great student."

Trump also revealed that his son has become a sort of informal adviser, and said, "And he does like politics. It’s sort of funny. He’ll tell me sometimes, 'Dad, this is what you have to do.'"

College choices may be changing

With Barron set to graduate from Oxbridge Academy, the high school he attends in Palm Beach, Florida, there has been much speculation about where he plans to attend college in the fall, according to Newsweek.

It has been reported that his top choice is New York University, though there is also a strong possibility that he could follow in the footsteps of his father and several of his older siblings by attending the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. There are also rumors that, given his tremendous height, he could be looking at playing basketball at schools like St. John's University in New York or the University of Miami in Southern Florida.

Yet, in the WPHT interview, Trump referenced the current campus chaos -- including at NYU -- as he said of Barron, "He’s a senior now in high school, and he’ll be going to college. And you know, a lot of, a lot of these choices of colleges are changing because you see what’s going on in the last month. Biden has totally lost control of the country."

High praise from sister-in-law Lara Trump

Former President Trump certainly isn't alone in praising his youngest son, as Breitbart reported separately in April that Barron also received high praise from his older sister-in-law, Lara Trump, who is married to Trump's middle son, Eric, and now serves as the co-chair of the Republican National Committee.

Lara referenced the prevalent humorous memes circulating on social media among Trump's loyal supporters that Barron will one day take command of both the family business and the political world, and said, "When you say that he may take over the world one day, I wouldn’t put it past him. He, you know, he’s quiet because he knows that he’s far superior to any of these lunatics out there. He doesn’t need to get in the fray."

As for Barron having "kind of stayed in the background and kept quiet" over the past several years since his father first became president when he was just 10, she said, "I think, initially, it was a protective thing, probably starting with Melania whenever they were in the White House. That’s a lot for a young kid to deal with, of course, especially whenever the media is savagely trying to attack your entire family."

Lara further stated that her young brother-in-law was "incredibly bright" and described him as a "sleeper" that people shouldn't count out, as she explained, "That’s what I call those kind. He’s a sleeper -- look out for him. When he bursts on the scene -- and one day he will -- nobody’s safe. He’s gonna take it over."
