Ever since Donald Trump began his presidency, he has tried to keep his 11 year-old Barron out of the public eye as much as possible. That’s why it came as a surprise this week when Barron was photographed at the White House this week.
This past Monday, Donald and Melania Trump hosted annual White House Easter Egg Roll celebrations on the White House lawn. Their son Barron decided to take a break from the festivities to kick a soccer ball around while wearing Arsenal’s full red and white strip, including the socks. He could have been a good luck charm of sorts for the Gunners, who ended their run of four Premier League away games without a win after beating Middlesbrough 2-1.

Many players from the four-time MLS Cup winners DC United were attending the Easter Egg Roll, and striker Patrick Mullins revealed he chatted about soccer with Barron.
“He was very knowledgeable about soccer, knew about DC United and was interested to know more,” Mullins said. “Little kids like to have a passion for the game and to be knowledgeable and have a conversation with us, it makes me feel good about kids growing up playing the game.”
