Trump’s youngest son declines to be RNC delegate due to prior commitments
By Belle Carter // May 14, 2024

Former President Donald Trump's youngest son, Barron, has declined to be a delegate to the Republican National Convention, according to the office of his mother, former First Lady Melania Trump.

"While Barron is honored to have been chosen as a delegate by the Florida Republican Party, he regretfully declines to participate due to prior commitments," the office said. No further details were given. However, some observers believe he will be preparing for his first year of college over the summer.

Republican Party of Florida chairman Evan Power last week announced that the 18-year-old high school senior would serve as one of 41 at-large delegates from Florida, where the GOP is set to officially nominate his father as its presidential candidate for the November general election.

"We have a great delegation of grassroots leaders, elected officials and even Trump family members," Power said. "Florida is continuing to have a great convention team, but more importantly we are preparing to win Florida and win it big."

Barron was chosen alongside his siblings, Donald Jr., Eric and Tiffany. Ivanka Trump, who served as a senior adviser in her father's White House, was the only Trump child not on the delegate list.

The convention is from July 15 to 18 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

When the former president learned about Barron being chosen to participate in the RNC, he said he was "all for it." Barron was rarely seen during his father's White House years, unlike his siblings. Melania rarely let Barron attend official White House events when she was first lady. Additionally, she would have Barron travel in a separate car when he rode in the presidential motorcade. She also had her son board Air Force One on the back stairs of the plane so there would not be photographs of him climbing the front stairs with his parents.

The youngest child was not present during Trump's presidential bid announcement at Mar-a-Lago and the night of Super Tuesday when Trump effectively locked up the Republican presidential nomination. But during an interview at "Kayal and Company" on Philadelphia's Talk Radio 1210 WPHT, the former POTUS seemed to be presenting the idea that Barron may enter politics.

"He's really been a great student. And he does like politics. It's sort of funny," Trump said. "He'll tell me sometimes, 'Dad, this is what you have to do.'"

Trump also revealed that the 18-year-old, who is graduating from high school this week, is weighing what college he might attend. But, he noted, the campus protests have been a factor in that decision.

"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," Trump said.

The former president also complimented his six-foot-seven-inch son's looks. "He's a little on the tall side. I will tell you, he's a tall one, but he is a good-looking guy," Trump said.

Attending a private school in Maryland, he rarely appeared in public, with his mother reported to be fiercely protective of his privacy. However, sources told the Daily Mail that the teenager, who has never uttered a word in public, is a steadfast supporter of the Trump 2024 campaign behind the scenes.

Trump allowed to skip court to attend son's graduation, speak at Republican Party dinner

Barron's name came up in Trump's Manhattan hush money trial when Judge Juan Merchan granted Trump's request to allow him to skip court and attend his son’s high school graduation. The approval came after the judge faced a barrage of negative comments for his initial decision to decline to adjourn the Supreme Court's hearing on that date, claiming that Trump's priority should be attending the trial rather than going to his son's graduation ceremony.

Trump had also complained on his Truth Social website that he could be forced to miss the graduation of his "wonderful son" Barron, who attends a private school in Florida, due to the hush money case. Merchan on April 30 said the court won't sit on this date, commenting: "I don't think May 17 is a problem."

The day would be a hectic one for the former president as he would also have to deliver the keynote address at the Minnesota Republican Party's annual Lincoln Reagan Dinner. The dinner, which Trump is hosting along with GOP House Majority Whip Rep. Tom Emmer, is taking place on the same day at Saint Paul RiverCentre.

In a statement, Minnesota GOP chair David Hann commented: "We are thrilled to welcome President Trump back to Minnesota to headline our Lincoln Reagan dinner, an annual tradition that reminds us of the roots of our Party and the leaders who have been most impactful in promoting our American values."
