Donald Trump's New Comments About Barron's Height Have Everyone Saying The Same Thing

Donald Trump's relationships with his family members, including his wife Melania Trump, and his kids Ivanka Trump, Tiffany Trump, Eric Trump, and Donald Trump, Jr., have made headlines for years now. But the same can't be said about Barron Trump, the only Trump we know barely anything about. That might be because of the significant age difference between Barron and the rest of his siblings, as he was still in school while the older Trump kids were trying to figure out foreign policy with their dad. Barron was barely a teen when his father was elected.

But in an interview with the "Moms for America" Podcast, Donald was asked about Barron, and his response was a little odd. When asked about their father and son relationship, Donald said, "He's a tall guy, very tall. 6'8". He's a great young man. Very good student. I think he's doing a good job, Barron. I think he's doing a very good job." Of course, the reaction that Donald's reply got on X (formerly Twitter) is exactly what you'd expect.

Donald Trump is getting roasted for his answer about Barron

Donald Trump's comments on the "Moms for America" podcast have gotten quite the reaction on X, with a lot of social media users suggesting the former president sounded like he was talking more about a former employee than his son. Some focused on how Donald just talked about Barron's height. One commenter said, "I'd say that means he has no relationship with his son except as a tax [write] off." Another person wrote, "I have never seen him engaged in any activity with Barron whatsoever other than walking into a dinner with him and Melania. Not even golf."

That said, it was earlier reported that Donald's height difference with Barron was a rumored source of their tension, as the former president doesn't want to be seen with his son towering over him. But Donald probably doesn't have to worry about that too much given that Melania Trump has been doing everything she can to keep Barron out of the public spotlight, according to People. With Barron's privacy so heavily guarded behind closed doors, it's no wonder his father is always shocked to see how much he's grown.

The real heights of Barron and Donald Trump are still up for discussion

Of course, Barron Trump's real height, along with his father Donald Trump's, seems to be a mystery. While Donald claims that Barron stands at 6 feet 8 inches tall, his official height has not been disclosed. However, back in 2021, the New York Post claimed that Barron was 6'7". As a growing teen, there's a good possibility that he might have added an extra inch since then. Also, being tall seems to be a strong Trump family gene as Barron's sister Ivanka Trump is reportedly 5'11", with her daughter Arabella quickly catching up to the rest of the family, too.

As far as Donald's height and weight, both the Washington Post and New York Magazine clock him in at 6 feet 3 inches tall and 215 pounds. That being said, it appears Donald might have mysteriously grown an inch, as his height was listed as 6 feet 2 inches when he was indicted for charges involving "hush money" payments in April 2023, per The Telegraph.

Even former First Lady Melania Trump's height has been called into question, as Business Insider lists her as 5 foot 11 inches while Celebrity Heights has her a little under 5 foot 10. Then again, a good pair of heels can make all the difference in the world. We are sure Donald would agree with that, too.
