Chelsea Clinton Wants The World To Let Barron Trump Be A Kid

Chelsea Clinton knows a thing or two about growing up in the eye of a political cyclone. The former first daughter was just 12 years old when her parent took office. So she understands what it might be like for Donald Trumps 10 -year-old son, Barron.

On Sunday, Clinton posted a message about Barron following social media comments directed at the young son during Trumps inauguration. Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does-to be a kid, she wrote on Twitter and Facebook.

Like her fellow first daughters, Clinton has spoken about what life was like growing up with two prominent politicians as parents.

One of my earliest childhood memories is being 3 years old and on the campaign trail with my father, she said about Bill Clintons time as governor of Arkansas in a 2014 interview.[ A girl asked] Do you want to grow up and be governor the working day too? And I looked at her and told, No, Im 3. Im just waving the flag. That is my job right now. Flag-waving extraordinaire.

As for her feelings on Trump, Clinton has said that she find the partys employ of abhor speech very troubling. In her post about Barron, she also made it clear that she resists Trumps politics that hurt kids, and called for others to do the same.
