Melania Trump: Barron Trump ‘missing’ from Mar-a-Lago Christmas 'some aide watching him?'

Barron Trump, 13, travelled to the Palm Beach resort in Floria on December 20 with his family but hasn’t been spotted at any of the events. His absence has prompted people to ask where he is and criticise Melania and Donald Trump for not spending time with him. It comes as Barron has been the centre of heated debates concerning whether he should be included in his father’s politics.

Twitter users were furious to not see Barron Trump with them.

One said: “So where’s the kid? Where’s Baron? Does he not spend time with any of his children, when they are teenagers? It’s Christmas, and you would think they would’ve showed off the kid.”

Another added: “Ok, where’s Barron? Poor child at the White House on Christmas Eve with some aide watching him?”

A third said: “Where's Barron? It is Christmas Eve. Go actually engage with your children.”

It comes as President Trump brought up Barron to mock his Democratic presidential rivals last night at his Michigan rally.

The move sparked controversy since his wife Melania Trump attacked an impeachment witness for bringing up their son during a hearing last week.

The rally was held at the same time as Donald Trump became the third US president in history to be impeached by the House of Representatives, setting up a trial in the Senate that will decide whether he remains in office.

During the rally at Battle Creek, Michigan, President Trump told the crowd that his son Barron would draw bigger crowds than leading presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren.

At the time, the First Lady tweeted that Karlan “should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it”.

She added: “A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics."

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham called the comment "classless".

The Michigan remark from the US President prompted a swift backlash on social media, with many retweeting the original Melania tweet.
