Barron Trump Just Received His High School Diploma — Donald and Melania Cheer

Former first son Barron Trump loomed over officials at his South Florida high school Friday morning as he picked up his diploma, while his parents looked on from the bleachers.

Former President Donald Trump, 77, was every bit the proud papa — grinning alongside wife Melania at the graduation exercises for Oxbridge Academy in West Palm Beach

The 45th president was permitted to attend the ceremony by Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Juan Merchan, who called off the day’s planned proceedings in the “hush money” trial of the onetime commander-in-chief.

Later Friday, Trump was scheduled to fly to Minnesota, where he will be the headline speaker at the state GOP’s Lincoln-Reagan dinner.

Little is known about the details of Barron’s time at Oxbridge Academy, which charges $41,500 per year for tuition, and where he had spent the previous three years of his education.

Barron previously attended Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School in New York City and transferred to St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Potomac, Md., during his father’s term of office.

The youngest Trump has largely been kept out of the spotlight during his youth, dividing his time between New York and Florida while never speaking publicly.

Melania Trump — who opted for a blue suit jacket, white skirt and straw hat — has taken a central role in raising Barron and famously likes to keep him close to her.

Last week, the former first lady shot down the prospect of Barron being a Florida delegate to the Republican National Convention to help formally nominate his father, saying the 18-year-old had “prior commitments.”

The high school graduate has not yet announced where he will attend college, and the former president recently said his son’s college options had been upended by recent anti-Israel protests and other unrest on campuses.

“He’s a good guy. He’s a senior now in high school, and he’ll be going to college. And you know, a lot of, a lot of these choices of colleges are changing because you see what’s going on in the last month,” Trump told “Kayal and Company” on Philadelphia’s Talk Radio 1210 WPHT.

The former president also revealed Barron has an affinity for politics and sometimes likes to advise his dad.

“He’s a little on the tall side. I will tell you, he’s a tall one, but he is a good-looking guy. And he’s really been a great student. And he does like politics. It’s sort of funny,” Trump said.

“He’ll tell me sometimes, ‘Dad, this is what you have to do.’”

    All of Donald J. Trumps’ children that were raised with him 100% involved have turned out incredible. His daughter Tiffany Trump, was raised primarily with the Mother, Marla Maples.

    Then we look at Joe Biden’s children where 3 out of 3 became full-fledged addicts before the age of 13; all of them. What in the world was going on under that roof and behind closed doors at The Biden Residence? I think we all have a few ideas and my gut tells me that if Ashley was subpoena’d, we’d learn that her stepbrother Hunter was also someone that frightened her & possibly molested her. All the years in politics (Joe Biden) yet look at how very few photographs there are of Jill, Joe and the 3 children ~ there are very few of those.

    It seems so unnatural to me, when I grew up with The Nixon Family paper dolls – playing with them, a cardboard White House and Nixons’ daughters came with changeable dresses with matching hats, purses and shoes. So the White House FAMILY has always been shown ~ until Joe moved in…. we only see Hunter when he’s hiding or hitting up the ole man for money or tweaking his substance(s) to keep him alert & moving quicker.

    God Bless Barron Trump & Congratulations on your Graduation. No doubt Mom & Dad are very proud and if he is anything like his older brothers & sister Ivanka ~ he will go far in life, continue in the Family Legacy and was raised well-rounded, business-oriented, people skills galore, with integrity, morals and values embedded since Birth. He’s grown up around the most noble, most prestigious, well-known, highly respected citizens and no doubt what he has learned from just rubbing elbows, listening to their tales over meals and being around such a vast variety of scholars, athletes, politics – if he pursues Politics I think he would be just as incredible as his Father, if not more so – since he’s watched and learned for the last 8 years. These are two Parents that deserve to be Proud ~ they have done a phenomenal job. Melania is the First Lady that Jill Biden could NEVER come close to her level of scholar, language skills, historian yet so down to earth ~

    Congratulations Barron Trump ~

    Well done Trumps…. It is such a pleasure to see Barron in his graduation outfit. So he graduated from Oxbridge Academy and is on his way to College. Fantastic…… Maybe he will go to Oxford to study political sciences… Most of the political leaders of the world go to Oxford or Cambridge for their Masters Degree…..The youngest Trump may enjoy Oxbridge atmosphere in England too…

    Melania looks very proud and stylish. Father Trump looks very happy. He is a triumphant man, he is a proud father and a winner politician……. A trimmed 77 year old Trump looks rejuvenated by his son’s graduation day!

    Congratulations…

    I’d rather have a college freshman advising my president than a 54 year old stripper-chasing, crack-addict, slimy lawyer/deadbeat dad advising.

    The sincerest response of a proud father towards his son’s achievement, I find it very refreshing and honest!
