Earlier this week, the Daily Caller printed an article slamming 11 year-old Barron Trump for dressing too casually. Afterwards, even Chelsea Clinton jumped to Barron’s defense.
Now, Melania Trump has broken her silence to defend her son.
“Barron looked like he was hopping on Air Force One for a trip to the movie theater” while his parents, the president and First Lady Melania “traveled in their Sunday best” on their way from Bedminster, New Jersey, back to the White House on Sunday, the Daily Caller’s Ford Springer wrote. He concluded the article by writing, “The youngest Trump doesn’t have any responsibilities as the president’s son, but the least he could do is dress the part when he steps out in public.”
Though Chelsea Clinton is a liberal who openly despises Donald Trump, she knew she had to say something when she saw this article.
“It’s high time the media & everyone leave Barron Trump alone & let him have the private childhood he deserves,” Chelsea wrote on Twitter along with a link to the Daily Caller article.

Daily Mail reported that now Melania has spoken out to thank Chelsea for defending her son.
“Thank you Chelsea Clinton – so important to support all of our children in being themselves!” Melania wrote on Twitter, adding the hashtag #StopChildhoodBullying.
