Barron Trump, Donald and Melania Trump’s only child together, has done his best to stay out of the spotlight. After being (unfairly, TBH) bullied after Trump won the election, Barron has kept it very low-key, only appearing on very rare occasions with his mother and father. But after a recent photo of the family surfaced, people can’t help but laugh at just how much taller Barron is than Trump.
How tall is Barron Trump now?
The photo of the Trumps shows Barron, who’s now 14 years old, to tower over his parents (according to Business Insider, Barron was 6’3 in January 2020), as though he’s wearing stilts. In fact, he’s been jokingly compared to SpongeBob, who in an episode has disguised himself and is clearly wearing stilts.
As funny as the photo is, Barron looks this tall because he probably just had a growth spurt — he literally became a teen in the last couple years. And he’s probably taller than Trump because Trump is 73 years old and has shrunk over time.
The Twitter comments are pretty all over the place about the photo. Some find it hilarious, others are condemning the original poster for making fun of a 14-year-old, and some super right-wing supporters are using it as an excuse to be extremely hateful.
