We hear an enormous amount about Donald Trump; he seems to be in the news constantly these days. However, you might be aware that his youngest son is called Barron Trump, and if so, you may be wondering how tall he is, and whether he takes after his father in terms of stature.
Barron Trump is 6 foot 7 inches (201 meters), which would be an impressive height for an American man – but when you consider that he’s still a teenager, it’s quite an extraordinary height to have achieved. It puts him almost a foot above the average man in America.
In this article, we’ll be learning more about Barron Trump and a few other interesting facts, like his weight and age. We’ll also be checking out how he compares with his family members in terms of size.
How Tall Is Barron Trump?
Barron Trump is rarely photographed, but he was seen in the summer of 2021 leaving Trump Tower with his parents, and many reporters remarked upon his height then. He is 6 foot 7 inches tall.
To put that into context, the average American man is about 5 foot 8 inches (1.73 meters), so Barron Trump is nearly a foot taller than the average. That’s not a small difference, and it’s possible that he still has some growing to do – so there’s no question that he’s going to be a very tall individual.
He has already outstripped both of his parents in terms of height, so let’s cover this area next and find out how Barron Trump compares with his close family members.
How Tall Is Barron Trump Compared With His Family?
Donald Trump is often noted for his height. At 6 foot 3 inches (1.91 meters), he’s the third tallest US president in history, beaten only by Lyndon B. Johnson and Abraham Lincoln. However, his son is about 4 inches taller than him already.
It’s interesting to note that during recent police investigations, Donald Trump has stated that he’s only 6 foot 2 inches (1.88 meters). The difference is pretty insignificant, but it would lose him the place as the third tallest president, putting him around the height of Thomas Jefferson, Bill Clinton, Chester Arthur, Franklin Roosevelt, and George Bush.
Regardless, Donald Trump is a tall individual, and appears to have passed his height on to his children.
Barron Trump’s mother, Melania Trump, is around 5 foot 11 inches (1.80 meters). That means she’s also tall, with the average American woman being around 5 foot 4 inches (1.63 meters). She’s almost half a foot taller. However, she’s also dwarfed by Barron Trump, as evidenced if you look at pictures of them together.
And what about his siblings? Barron Trump has 4 half-siblings, although no full siblings. Three are the children of Ivana Trump, while one is the child of Marla Maples.
The oldest of his siblings, Donald Jr., is 6 foot 1 inch (1.85 meters). Ivanka Trump, the second oldest, is 5 foot 11 inches.
Eric Trump, the third child, is said to be around 6 foot 5 inches (1.96 meters) or 6 foot 6 inches (1.98 meters). He was the tallest in the family, but Barron outstrips him by an inch or two now.
Tiffany Trump, Donald Trump’s fourth child, is around 5 foot 8 inches (1.73 meters). That’s still an impressive height and above the average for American women, but it means she’s almost a foot shorter than her brother, Barron Trump.
Regardless, it’s clear that the family got some pretty tall genes, and both of Barron Trump’s parents are tall individuals. However, he has outstripped them, and is almost a whole foot taller than the average American man.
How Old Is Barron Trump?
Barron Trump was born in 2006, and is currently 17 years old. The photographs mentioned above, showing him with his parents, are now 2 years old, so it’s possible he has grown even taller in the interim – although nobody knows this for sure.
It’s worth noting that Barron Trump is rarely photographed, perhaps as a result of still being a minor. He is not often seen except with his parents. In 2018, photographs taken as the family disembarked from a plane showed the then-12-year-old Barron Trump to be almost the same height as his father.
Interestingly, Barron Trump is the first boy to have lived in the White House since JFK Jr resided there. Other presidents who have resided at the White House in the interim have either had only daughters, or have had adult sons who lived elsewhere.
Barron Trump is said to have had his own living room and an entire floor to himself while staying at the White House. However, not much is known about him at present, except that he likes sports and he was educated at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School. He is the first presidential child to attend this school.
It’s not yet clear what the future holds for Barron Trump, and whether he will follow some of his family members into politics, or move into other areas. He is still a child, and it will probably be some time before the media learns more about him.
How Much Does Barron Trump Weigh?
Because Barron Trump isn’t often in the spotlight, it’s hard to say with confidence what he weighs. Some sources suggest that he is around 176 lb (80 kg), although it’s not clear where this information has been acquired.
That would be under the average weight range for a fully grown man of his height by just over 20 lb (9 kg), but since teenagers often fill out and get heavier as they mature, it seems a believable number. It’s likely that Barron Trump will gain a little weight as he turns into a man.
As you can see, Barron Trump is around 6 foot 7 inches, which is an extraordinary height, especially given that this estimate has been made from pictures that were taken when he was only 15 years old. There are no new updates now that he’s 17, but he’s certainly claimed the prestige of being the tallest Trump.
