Donald Trump offers update on Barron’s college decision: ‘He made his choice’

Donald Trump has revealed that his son Barron has already “chosen” the college he wants to attend. After the 18-year-old graduated from high school in May, there was speculation about the future of his education. Trump had previously said that Barron was “highly sought after” by colleges. Barron, however, has remained silent.

Barron accompanied his father to a rally in Miami on Tuesday, July 9. Introducing Barron to the crowd, Trump said, “This is a young man, he just turned 18. A very young man who is now going to college. He got into all the colleges he wanted to and he made his choice. And he’s a very good guy, I tell you… He’s a very special guy, Barron Trump. This is the first time he’s done this.”

Barron stood up, briefly waved to the crowd and raised his fist. Trump proudly said Barron is “pretty popular” and “might be more popular” than his other sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump.

“Barron, it’s good to have you here,” the former president said. “Welcome to the scene, Barron. I don’t know. He had a very nice, easy life, now everything has changed a little bit.”

Which college might Barron choose?

However, Barron’s college choice is not yet publicly known. Possibilities reportedly include New York University, Georgetown University, and the University of Pennsylvania. Trump said in an interview with Megyn Kelly in September 2023 that Barron was “thinking” about attending his father’s school: The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

Last month, the former president suggested on Fox News’ Fox & Friends Weekend that Barron had to modify his college search because of the “riots,” at a time when several pro-Palestine protests were taking place on college campuses across the United States. “Six months ago, you look at a college and you want a certain college,” Trump said. “And then you see all these colleges are rioting and maybe you want to go to a different kind of college. Because there are a lot of colleges that we like as well that are different and there are no riots.”
