We already know damn well that Donald Trump has no desire to live in the White House — which is pretty ridiculous — but now we are getting word that his wife and son likely won’t move there, either.
But at least in Melania Trump‘s case, as well as for their son, Barron, there’s a good reason for choosing to stay in New York City for the time being, according to media reports breaking on Sunday morning.
The 46-year-old wife of the President-elect, and the couple’s 10-year-old son, are opting to stay in New York to minimize disruption to the child’s school and life schedule, according to a source close to Trump’s transition team.
The source spoke to the media on Sunday, saying:
“Melania is extremely close to Barron, and they have become closer during the campaign. The campaign has been difficult for Barron, and she is really hoping to keep disruption to a minimum.”
Melania will apparently travel to the White House as much as needed, but her primary focus is Barron, and his schooling.
It should also be noted that sources have continuously claimed it’s Melania — and not a team of nannies or hired hands — who has raised Barron, so she appears to be extremely close to her and The Donald’s youngest son:
“Melania is very supportive of her husband and is fully on board of doing everything that’s needed as first lady … but she is really devoted to Barron.”
Of course, this won’t come without complications.
The Secret Service and the NYPD are set to REALLY beef up security at Trump Tower, with a security expert telling the New York Post:
“That building is going to become the White House of New York. The Secret Service is going to have to keep that whole area cordoned off so that some wacko can’t get close and detonate a car bomb.”
Say what you will about The Donald not wanting to live in Washington, but this might be a good decision for Melania and Barron to stay back at home, at least for now, so life doesn’t change too radically for the 10-year-old!
Just get ready for a LOT more traffic in Manhattan!!
