Why Melania Won't Be Joining Trump Right Away At The White House

This is a good mom. After Trump's monumental (and fairly unexpected) win, there is a whole new living arrangement that the Trump's need to get used to as America's First Family. But Melania Trump has decided to put Barron's stability first and postpone their move into the White House until he is finished with this school year, reports the Christian Post.


Transition spokesman Jason Miller said, "There's obviously a sensitivity to pulling out a 10-year-old in the middle of the school year." A source close to the transition team shared more: "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."

Trump confirmed the news to reporters over the weekend. When asked when his wife and son would join him in the White House, he answered, "Very soon. After he's finished with school."

Donald and Melania have both been very committed to not letting nannies raise Barron, even though they could afford it. In an interview with People, Donald Trump shared how he and his wife choose not to have a nanny do the primary parenting for Barron, but instead just have help for cooking and cleaning. "We keep it down to a minimum," said Trump, referring to their house staff.  "If you have too much help, you don't get to know your children."

Melania is often seen picking up Barron from school and sports and says she helps him with his homework. But the billionaire's wife also encourages her husband to spend quality time with Barron while he is home. "Barron loves to be one-on-one with Dad because normally he's almost always all the time with me," she said. "So I give them space when it's Daddy and Barron time. They go alone for dinner, one-on-one. They play golf together. He looks forward to that."
