Melania and Barron Trump move into White House

Melania and Barron Trump move into White House

Melania and the couple's 11-year-old son had stayed behind in NY so Barron could finish the school year.

Melania announced the news via Twitter, posting a photograph showing the White House lawns.

President Donald Trump with first lady Melania Trump and their son Barron arrive at Joint Base Andrews outside Washington, after a weekend at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, June 11, 2017. Trump celebrates his 71st birthday on Wednesday and got his gift a few days early.

During the week at least, Trump had been living alone in the vast, private quarters of the White House as he fends off the flood of reporting over Russian Federation having allegedly meddled in the 2016 USA election with the aim of helping him defeat Hillary Clinton.

One remaining question had to do with a move-in date, and Mrs. Trump answered it Sunday.

In the fall, the 11-year-old is expected to attend St. Andrew's Episcopal School in Potomac, Md.

The move will also no doubt be welcomed by New Yorkers, who have footed a hefty security bill keeping the First Family safe in Trump Tower. WWD reported in February that Melania hired interior designer Tham Kannalikham to help make the White House feel more like home.

The first lady has mostly kept a low profile since her real estate mogul husband became president. In the case of President Trump, many will be anxious to see whether Mrs. Trump's daily presence will have a positive influence on Trump's behavior and mood, including his often angry tweet storms.

The decision of the first lady not moving to Washington was described by the Washington Post as flouting "the most basic of all first lady traditions", adding that it appeared "unprecedented".
