Another Trump intends to enter the political arena. While his brothers and sister have long been involved in the public eye, Donald Trump’s youngest son, Barron, has largely been kept out of the public eye over the past decade.

That’s all about to change. 

NBC News reports that the 18-year-old, who will soon graduate high school will be taking part in the upcoming Republican National Convention where his father is expected to receive the party’s nomination for president.

Trump, former President Donald Trump’s youngest child, who will graduate from high school next week and has largely been kept out of the political spotlight, was picked by the Republican Party of Florida on Wednesday night as one of the state’s at-large delegates to the Republican National Convention, according to a list of delegates obtained by NBC News.

“We have a great delegation of grassroots leaders, elected officials and even Trump family members,” Florida GOP chairman Evan Power said. “Florida is continuing to have a great convention team, but more importantly we are preparing to win Florida and win it big.”

Trump’s position as a delegate will be his highest-profile political role thus far.

In a family full of politically involved children, Barron Trump, who turned 18 in March, has retained much more of a private life than his older brothers, Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr., both of whom will also be Florida at-large RNC delegates, along with Trump’s daughter Tiffany.

The delegates will appear at the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, this July.

A Trump campaign official told Politico that Barron “is very interested in our nation’s political process.”

The outlet noted, “Republican Party of Florida Chair Evan Power held a phone call on Wednesday night with delegation leaders, including Kimberly Guilfoyle, who’s engaged to Donald Trump Jr. and is on the platform committee for the Republican National Convention.

‘We are fortunate to have a great group of grassroots leaders, elected officials, and members of the Trump family working together as part of the Florida delegation to the 2024 Republican National Convention,’ Power said in a statement.

Though the list has several Trump family members, it also includes leaders across the GOP Florida ecosystem. Among them are officials who endorsed Gov. Ron DeSantis, including Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, state Speaker Designate Danny Perez and Senate President Designate Ben Albritton. Pam Bondi, Florida’s former attorney general who ran super PACs supporting Trump, is an at-large delegate, as is state Sen. Randy Fine, who flipped his support during the 2024 GOP presidential primary from DeSantis to Trump.”

Donald Trump won Florida twice in the general election and defeated the Sunshine State’s popular governor, Ron DeSantis, during the 2024 primary.
