Trump critics say Barron Trump no longer ‘crosses the line’ after political move

Many Donald Trump critics suggest that the former president’s youngest son, Barron, is now open to scrutiny after wandering the political world.

After Barron Trump, who turned 18 in March, was announced as Florida’s delegate to the Republican National Convention, social media users said he was now “fair game” and “off limits” to attacks from the media and elsewhere.

Republican Party Chairman Evan Power of Florida said Barron, who graduated from high school in May, will be one of the 41 at-large delegates from Florida to the Republican National Convention in July, where his father will be confirmed as the GOP’s 2024 presidential nominee, NBC News first reported.

Joining his siblings Eric, Donald Trump Jr. and Tiffany among the RNC delegates in Florida, this is the 18-year-old’s first time in the political spotlight.

Baron’s decision to join his family on the political stage led to suggestions that the 18-year-old could not be shielded from criticism because of his age or actions.

Alison Gill, political commentator and presenter Mueller, he wrote The podcast, released on X, previously took to Twitter to say “no more limits” when Barron shared an NBC News report.

X user Rob Vorek said Barron’s move into the political world “could end very badly.”

“He’s fair game to the media now. I’m really surprised. I thought Melania would do everything to prevent this, but if the now-adult Baron decides to personally participate in his father’s circus, so be it,” Worek added. .

Alt Mom by Devin Nunes, a popular parody social media account purporting to be the mother of the former California congressman, posted, “Grandson Trump is now officially fair game.”

Another social media user added: “Barron Trump steps onto the political stage as Florida delegate at Republican convention.

“Kids are off-limits. However, at 18, Barron is now considered an adult. If Barron chooses to enter the Republican political circus, it will be game on.”

Trump’s office was reached for comment by email.

Barron recently made headlines after the former president urged the judge overseeing his hush money trial in New York to allow him to miss a day of proceedings to attend the 18-year-old’s high school graduation on May 17.

Judge Juan Mercon has confirmed that the trial over the falsified business records that allowed Trump to attend his son’s high school graduation in Florida will be stayed on May 17.

In a statement confirming Barron would serve as a delegate, Power said: “We have a great team of grassroots leaders, elected officials and members of the Trump family.

“Florida continues to be a great conference team, but more importantly we’re getting ready to beat Florida and beat it big.”
