First lady Melania Trump and her son, Barron Trump, officially moved into the White House Sunday, reuniting the first family full time in Washington five months after President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
Sunday’s announcement that the first family had officially moved into the White House came via Twitter from Melania Trump, who posted a picture of the Washington Monument and Jefferson Memorial from inside the White House along with the message “looking forward to the memories we’ll make in our new home! #Movingday.”
The move, which had always been planned for the early spring, wound up happening slightly earlier than expected. A White House official had previously told POLITICO that Melania and Barron Trump would move to Washington on June 14.
Barron Trump, the president’s youngest son, is 11 years old and has stayed mostly out of the spotlight since the start of his father’s political career, especially relative to his high-profile adult siblings. He and his mother had remained in New York so that he could finish out the school year while the president moved to Washington. He will attend a private school in Potomac, Maryland, beginning in the fall.
Both Barron and Melania Trump joined the president on his return flight on Sunday from New Jersey, where he spent the week at his Bedminster golf resort.
