Where Was Barron Trump During Donald Trump’s Pre-Inauguration Concert? Twitter Reacts

Hanging with Sasha? Barron Trump was noticeably absent from his famous father Donald’s Make America Great Again concert at the Lincoln Memorial on Thursday, January 19. As previously reported, the president-elect, 70, kicked off his inauguration festivities with a concert including performances by Toby Keith and 3 Doors Down with his wife, Melania, and kids Ivanka, Eric, Donald Jr. and Tiffany by his side (which you can watch in the video above).

However, his youngest child, 10-year-old Barron, was nowhere in sight and the internet was quick to speculate about his absence.

“OK people let’s stay focused on the things that matter like where is Barron Trump? Is he OK?” one person on Twitter wrote, while another added: “Why isn’t anyone addressing the elephant in the room where is #BarronTrump?”

Although the youngster — who previously made headlines for trying to stay awake during Trump’s early-morning campaign victory speech — was absent from the concert, he is indeed in Washington, D.C., with the family. Barron was spotted exiting an Air Force jet at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland earlier on Thursday. Ivanka also tweeted out a photo of the future first family – including Barron – exiting the plane.

During Trump’s campaign donors dinner Thursday night, the future 45th president briefly said during his speech that “Barron is at home.”

His absence came after people speculated on Twitter about the whereabouts of Sasha during President Barack Obama’s farewell speech on January 11. The 15-year-old, whose absence went viral as people tweeted the hashtag #WhereIsSasha, skipped the big night due to an exam she had in the morning, first lady Michelle Obama later revealed.
