Barron Trump has tried his best to stay out of the spotlight since his father, Donald Trump, was elected president. But as he gets older, the public is becoming even more curious about what this middle schooler is actually like. It turns out he might be more intelligent than any of us thought.
He’s the first son in the White House in more than 50 years
Before Barron Trump, the last boy in the White House was John F. Kennedy Jr., more than half a century ago. Because JFK Jr. was born after his father was elected, he was extremely young during his father’s term. Barron Trump was 10 years old when his father was elected. And for not even being a teenager yet, he has a pretty impressive resume.

He is multilingual
It’s well known that Barron Trump’s mother, Melania Trump, speaks multiple languages. Believe it or not, her son does, too. Barron Trump speaks fluent Slovenian alongside his English. Plus, he knows French. He learned Slovenian at a very young age. Melania Trump said in an interview that Barron Trump was already speaking her native language when he was just 3 years old. It’s unconfirmed how much French he speaks, but he was speaking French as a toddler, too.

He has attended some of the best schools in the country
If you grow up in the Trump family, money practically grows on trees. This means Barron Trump’s parents spared no expense when choosing the right school for their son. The youngest child of Donald Trump has gone to some of the most prestigious schools in the country. He spent part of his schooling at Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School, a nearly $50,000-per-year school on the Upper West Side in New York City. And when the 2017-2018 school year began, Barron Trump enrolled at St. Andrews Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland.

He is being raised by his mother, not by a nanny
This part of Barron Trump’s life differs greatly from most first children. Melania Trump decided she wanted to raise her son without the help of nannies, which has given Barron Trump a mother-son bond that many children don’t have. Parents have a serious developmental and emotional impact on their child, especially the child’s social development and ability to interact well with others. “I am a full time mom; that is my first job. The most important job ever,” Melania Trump told Parenting.com.

He has influence from his much-older half-siblings
Barron Trump’s influences stretches far beyond his parents. He is the youngest of five of Donald Trump’s children, which means he was born with four siblings and two parents to learn from. Plus, his siblings have accomplished a lot in their lives. From successful lifestyle brands to a continued education at Georgetown Law, the Trump siblings do have quite a few accolades under their belts. Barron Trump is growing up and watching his siblings’ successes, which only paves the way for him to be successful, as well.

He doesn’t use Twitter
Alright, maybe this doesn’t factor into being the most intelligent first boy in U.S. history, but everyone knows Twitter tends to get the Trump family — the president, in particular — in trouble. Luckily, Barron Trump has steered clear of the popular social media site — at least for now. Does defying his family’s Twitter obsession prove his intelligence? We’d like to think so.
