Source claims Melania Trump's "main job" is protecting son Barron from the ugliness of his father's 2024 presidential campaign

Former first lady Melania Trump has become even more dedicated to protecting her son, Barron Trump, following the death of her mother, SheKnows reported. Barron is her only child and the youngest son of former President Donald Trump.

Although her husband is attempting to retake the White House, it's clear to the public that Melania Trump is more intent on what's going on at home. She has doubled down on this mission since her mother, Amalija Knavs, died on Jan 9, 2024, at the age of 78.

Melania Trump become more protective of Barron since her mother's passing. Compounding this need to hold on is the fact that at almost 18, Barron will be heading off to college soon.

Although she was already fiercely protective of Barron, Melania Trump seems to be holding on even tighter. Sources close to her say it's Melania's "main job" at this point.

The Bond Between Melania and Barron

"Melania’s main job is taking care of Barron, and I think it’s possible that she will follow him wherever he goes to school. Barron is shy and reserved, and she has been a good mother to him all of these years," a source close to the matter said.

"She has always been family-oriented, and in addition to some of the charity work she has done, staying ahead of family issues is her priority. She has a good life," the person added.

Melania also tries to keep Barron away from the ugliness of the political witch hunt happening with his father, Donald Trump. The elder Trump is at the center of four criminal trials, and Melania is making sure that won't touch Barron's life during this election cycle.

"And she may be keen to guard Barron from becoming too exposed. Once you draw on your family, they become fair game for the media and opposition research," the source said.

However, it's more than just the bond between mother and son that keeps Melania on the defensive when it comes to Barron. The media has been just as vicious about him as they have been about his father.

The Attacks on Barron

Born on March 20, 2006, Barron was only 9 when his father took office as president. Unfortunately, that didn't shield him from media attacks, including speculation from Rosie O'Donnell about whether Barron had autism.

In a since-deleted tweet, the former co-host of "The View" picked apart Barron's conduct at his father's inauguration, Variety reported. She shared a seven-minute video of the supposed evidence on this young boy's plight, taking the feud between the disgruntled comedian and Trump to a new low.

Surprisingly, Barron had some heavy hitters come to his defense in the online bullying. Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former President Bill Clinton and wife Hillary, tweeted appeals to keep Barron out of the political sniping, People reported.

"It’s high time the media & everyone leave Barron Trump alone & let him have the private childhood he deserves," Clinton tweeted after one particularly cruel article about Barron. He also received support from former first daughter Jenna Bush Hager.

Melania lost her beloved mother this year and will once again support her husband through a contentious presidential campaign. Her instinct to shield Barron is understandable and appropriate given those circumstances.
