President-elect Donald Trump’s wife and soon to be First Lady of the United States Melania Trump, along with their son Barron, will not be moving to the President’s White House in Washington after the inauguration ceremony in January, the New York Post reported Sunday. They will be staying at the Trump Tower in New York because Melania does not want Barron to leave his Upper West Side private school and interrupt his education, the report said.
“Melania is extremely close to Barron, and they have become closer during the campaign. The campaign has been difficult for Barron, and she is really hoping to keep disruption to a minimum,” a source in the transition team told the New York Post. Another source also said that while Melania will be travelling to the White House as and when required, she will primarily be focusing on Barron. While there is speculation that she may move in at the end of the school year, no plans about that have been set in place as of yet.
The security around Trump Tower has been heightened. An officials from a security company based in North Carolina said that the Trump Tower area will become the White House of New York.
After the results of the Presidential elections, where Trump clinched the victory against Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton, the area has been made more difficult for people to access, with greater security checks and more traffic jams. The Secret Service will also cordon off the area completely to prevent any attack on the Trump Tower.
