President Donald Trump introduced his youngest son, Barron Trump, to supporters at a campaign rally in Florida on Tuesday, marking what the elder Trump described as the teenager's first appearance on the campaign trail.

The 18-year-old Barron received a standing ovation from the crowd gathered at Trump's Doral golf course. As cheers intensified, the former president paused his speech, saying, "Oh, look at this," the New York Post reports.

Trump, 78, praised his son's intelligence and demeanor, noting that Barron had recently turned 18 and was heading to college. "A very young man who is now going to college – got into every college he wanted to and he made his choice," Trump said. "He's a very good guy."

The former president encouraged Barron to stand up, prompting another round of applause and gestures of appreciation from the young Trump. "That's the first time he's ever done this," Trump remarked, before comparing Barron's popularity to that of his older brothers, Don and Eric, who had spoken earlier at the event.

Trump acknowledged the impact of public life on his youngest son, saying, "Welcome to the scene, Barron," and noting that his "nice, easy life" had changed.

This public introduction comes amid other recent appearances by Barron, including a video that circulated showing him riding in a golf cart with his father. In May, he declined an invitation to serve as a Florida delegate at the Republican National Convention.

The rally, held at Trump's golf resort in Doral, Florida, on July 9, 2024, is part of the former president's campaign efforts as he seeks to return to the White House this November.
