Melania And Barron Trump To Stay In New York, Won't Move To White House With Donald

Following President-Elect Trump's inauguration in January, NYPost reports that future First Lady Melania Trump and their 10-year-old son Barron will not be moving to the White House. “The campaign has been difficult for Barron, and she is really hoping to keep disruption to a minimum," according to Trump's transition team and while she "is fully on board of doing everything that’s needed as first lady," they will remain in the so-called "White House of New York."

The president-elect’s 46-year-old wife and their 10-year-old son are staying put at the family’s glitzy Trump Tower penthouse so that Barron can continue attending his Upper West Side private school, sources told The Post.

On a Sunday call with reporters, Donald Trump's communications adviser, Jason Miller, said there is “sensitivity to pulling their 10-year-old out of school in the middle of the school year.”

“Melania is extremely close to Barron, and they have become closer during the campaign,” said a source close to Trump’s transition team. “The campaign has been difficult for Barron, and she is really hoping to keep disruption to a minimum.”


Another source said Melania Trump will travel to the White House as needed, but that her primary focus is on Barron.


“Melania is very supportive of her husband and is fully on board of doing everything that’s needed as first lady,” said the second source familiar with the Trump transition.


That source said also that there is a possibility that Melania and Barron may move to the White House at the end of the school year, but no plans are in place.


“She is really devoted to Barron,” said a source close to the family, adding that Melania has not relied on nannies to raise the child and is frequently seen picking the fourth-grader up from his prep school, where tuition is north of $40,000.

As The Post notes however, the decision to remain in their Midtown home will increase the security presence around Trump Tower — an effort that will involve both Secret Service and the NYPD, an expert familiar with high-level security told The Post.

“That building is going to become the White House of New York,” said Jim Reese, a former Delta Force commander and president of TigerSwan, a global security company based in North Carolina.

Barron and Melania will each have an unknown number of Secret Service agents assigned to them in addition to a driver and armored vehicle to take Barron to school, Reese said. An advance team of agents will swoop down on the school each morning to make sure it’s safe, he added.

I haven't seen the Democrats this mad since the Republicans freed their slaves.

Michelle has already packed up all the Whitehouse furniture and fixtures* and would leave the Trumps with bare walls anyway.


* - everything that the Clinton's didn't steal.

Good for her. Why expose her kid to the toxic pollution of D.C.

Or Nancy Pelosi.

Im glad she is doing that. I said day one on Obama, why put those small children through that meat grinder?

All the Dems come with little kids, JFK, Carter, Clinton, Obama because they use them as poodles.

Melania is doing what most American women don't want to do, actually raise their own children.

I like that they say what they think and follow through with it.

You don't get a second chance to raise your kids.

I wonder if trump has considered the angle shoot on trying to stay in New York a lot. If he spends a lot of time there, wouldn't that drive an extra need for lodging in his building? A lot more secret service would need to be in the area and any people on official business with the president and the president's advisers and cabinet and any entourages may be seeking lodging too, whereas those people likely have existing lodging in DC. This may be an attempt at self dealing. Anyone with deeper insight on how this compares?

Over the course of 4 years what's the extra cost, maybe 100 million?

Any rents or fees paid to trump buildings needs a full up front disclosure. I hope there are people who will push for that info up front.

Use your head.  He won't charge rent, he'll take a tax deduction on it.

You really can't blame her for not wanting to move into the White House.  Who would want to move into minority used public housing?  It will probably take years to get the Wookie stench out.

I heard that Moochelle likes to drag her ass on the carpet to mark territory with her scent glands.

He doesn't pay taxes. There will be rent.

What's the affect on freeway and airport closures?

Major headache?

Why downgrade.....they live in the BEST.  Why move to the Ghetto house that was housed by past Section 8 folks.  No thanks...everything is probably ashy..

Could take a year or more to get the stench of the afro-sheen out of the place. Worse stink than a mattress fire.

Open all the doors, call Team Pest Control, and fumigate the place for sure. Maybe enclose the entire wh in one of those termite bubbles and saturate the place with anti-corruption sprays and anti-BO neutralizers.

Sad but true, ain't it. Don't forget to re-uphoslter everything thing and replace the wall paper which tends to hold those foul odors.

Trump's first act in office should be to fumigate the WH. Sends a strong signal

All of these things pretty much represent the 'pinnacle' of DIVINE HUMOR...


OK, let me step back... I believe in God, & I believe in a benevolent God, & I think God has better things to do than to hand out petty sentences...


OTOH ~ If one were to look at this from a GREEK GOD perspective... (vis-a-vis, Zeus throwing lightning bolts down on the mortals because there was all kinds of treachary & double dealing going on within the royal court of Mt. Olympus)...


Well ~ this would pretty much be up there in the INSTANT KARMA rankings


FFS~ The DEMS heads are probably exploding like that dude on 'Scanners' right now that Trumps wife doesn't 'LOOK' like Janet Reno, or Killary, or, Pocohantas, Wasserman, Medusa, Lena Dunham, or one of their deep stable TrogloDYKEs...

As a Merchant Mariner, I've spent 250-330 days a year away from my beautiful wife and family. I really hate to hear that for DJT, as I'm fully aware what it's like.

Fortunately, I was in my current profession prior to our wedding, so it wasn't like I ran away to join the circus. I hope their marriage survives it. Many don't.

That said, I'd back their decision (but hopefully she will homeschool him).

Good God man, why don't you work the Great Lakes?  Five weeks on, two off, tied up in the winter, plus you can swap shifts and duck out when going through locks or in port.  Most lines will let you bring family along once in a while.   Way better gig than deep sea.

Damn  Ebear, I'm all ears...Will be looking into it. Send me any Info you have.

For US employment:

For Canada:

It's been many years since I worked at sea, both on the lakes and coastal - all product tankers - as AB and as oiler, which I preferred.  I don't imagine too much has changed in the Home Trade. I was single at the time, so I was the guy you went to if you wanted a trade in Halifax or Sarnia to get ashore to see family or GF.  I took the back trade in the outports, such as Gaspe, Nfld, Magdelenes, Saint Pierre etc. and went exploring. 

3 months on, 1 month off was the arrangement, with my airfare paid from wherever I was at the time, usually Ottawa.  The lakers have a different set-up because you're usually closer to home, so 5 weeks on 2 off was typical, but you'd have to look into that.

Also, consider ferries if you want to be close to home.  Not just car ferries, but truck and rail ferries as well.  Also, tugs are a good gig and deep sea experience is an asset, since you have knowledge of how big ships handle and the sort of things that can come up.  Boom tows and barges are also common on the west coast. 

Deep sea fishing of course is seasonal, and if you have a good catch you are set for the rest of the year, but it's hard work in rough water.  Not for the faint of heart! (see Deadliest Catch)

Thanks for the heads-up!

It's going to take some SERIOUS fumigating and renovation work to get that place fit for humans again.

Fortunately, Trump is experienced in that realm.


So the WH will be subject to a false flag terror attack then?

You could always get the British to burn it down again;)

It's funny to hear the wookie's women who clothed her bash Melania when every duplicate dress Melania wears is invariably sold out online within hours. Copies of Melania's RNC dresses were literally sold out in minutes online.

The wookies' look alike wardrobe, however, can still be found most likely at Ross's, etc.

My relative is in school in design and fashion overseas and says designers are literally drooling at the chance to participate in anything Melania does or wears. Seems obvious to me given how incredibly beautiful and graceful she is.

Yet the Globalist media reported how the Designers will not work with Melania. The same folks who hoped the close polls could protect voter fraud.

Flush the Media whores and attack them with prejudice.
