Barron Trump is stepping into the spotlight after he graduated from high school.

Many are wondering what’s coming next for Donald Trump’s youngest son.

And Melania Trump made this big decision about Barron Trump’s future.

Melania Trump will play a big role in Barron Trump’s future

18-year-old Barron Trump graduated from Oxbridge Academy in Palm Beach County, Florida with his family in attendance.

Former President Donald Trump was in attendance during an off day from his sham criminal case in Manhattan.

Barron is getting ready to head off to college but his mom, former First Lady Melania Trump, will still play a big role in his life.

“Melania will keep her hand on Barron’s future just as much going forward as she has throughout his early and current school years,” a source told People Magazine. “He is her world. She is proud of him, and she is the primary decision maker on Barron and his future.”

The President’s son is still debating which college to attend next year.

“He is still young and has a lot in front of him,” the source added. “She wants him to be happy and settled in his future endeavors. She wants him to pursue what he wants to do. He is smart and has his own opinions but they are still being shaped.”

Is Melania Trump already playing a role in Barron’s future?

Barron Trump was announced as one of Florida’s at-large delegates to represent the state at the Republican National Convention this July in Milwaukee.

Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump were also selected as at-large delegates.

But a statement from Melania’s office said that Barron was turning down the role because of prior commitments.

“While Barron is honored to have been chosen as a delegate by the Florida Republican Party, he regretfully declines to participate due to prior commitments,” Melania Trump’s office said in a statement.

The former First Lady is famously private and has shied away from the campaign trail this election cycle.

Donald Trump revealed that Barron has an interest in politics during an interview on the Kayal and Company radio show.

“It’s sort of funny. He’ll tell me sometimes, ‘Dad, this is what you have to do,'” Trump said.

“He’s a little on the tall side, I will tell you, he’s a tall one, but he is a good-looking guy,” Donald said about his 6’7” son. “And he’s really been a great student.”

People reported in March 2023 that Melania is “very protective” of Barron.

“Melania’s friends are her family members,” a Palm Beach source told PEOPLE. “She is a doting mother to Barron and very protective of him. This is nothing new.”

“Barron has always been a first priority in [Melania’s] life,” the source continued. “Of course, she is worried and concerned about [Donald’s] legal issues but she has not done anything more to protect Barron now than she ever did. She has always put him first. She is a good mother.”

Politics has been a family affair for Donald Trump and it appears that Barron has an interest in getting involved.
