President Donald Trump’s wife Melania Trump and their son, Barron, have finally moved into the White House.
On Sunday, President Trump’s wife, Melania Trump, and their son, Barron, have finally moved into the White House after living in Trump Tower in New York City.
Melania Trump and Barron arrived at the White House on Sunday. Her parents Amalija and Vikto Knav also accompanied the family. She sent out a tweet, saying: “Looking forward to the memories we’ll make in our new home! #Movingday.” She posted this with a picture of the view from what appears to be the White House’s Red Room.
Melania’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham, also tweeted later that day, saying: “It’s official! @FLOTUS & Barron have made the move to DC #WelcomeHome.”
Melania had stayed behind in Trump Tower with Barron, in order to let him finish his school year.
Barron will now reportedly be attending Maryland’s St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in September. Barron is now the first boy to live in the White House since 1963, when John F. Kennedy’s son lived there.
Melania as First Lady
As opposed to what is commonly seen in the past First Ladies, Melania has been particularly absent since Donald Trump took office in January.
She did accompany him on his foreign trip last month, and many did speculate that she would become more active once she moves into the White House.
Jean Harris from Pennsylvania’s Scranton University, said: “I do think once she’s in D.C. there’ll be more pressure for her to be working on something that’s her own, that’s helping some segment of the population because that’s what first ladies are supposed to do.”
Katherine Jellison from Ohio University, said: “the move helps to give the impression that the president is currently in a stable, solif marriage and that his home life is under control.” This is referring to the couple’s suspected troubles during Trump’s first few months of presidency.
