Donald Trump’s youngest son, Barron Trump, received a standing ovation Tuesday at his father’s Florida rally in what the former president suggested was the teenager’s debut on the campaign trail. 

Barron, 18, turned and waved to the crowd of Trump supporters at his father’s Doral golf course as the former president praised him for his smarts, demeanor and rising popularity. 

“This is a young man. He just turned 18 –  Oh, look at this,” the 78-year-old former president said, stopping as the crowd’s cheers intensified.

“A very young man who is now going to college – got into every college he wanted to and he made his choice,” Trump continued. “He’s a very good guy.” 

“This is the first time he’s ever done this, Barron … stand up,” Trump said as his teenage son rose up and gave the crowd another fist pump and wave. 

“That’s the first time he’s done it. That’s the first time, right? You’re pretty popular. He might be more popular than Don and Eric, we got to talk about that,” the former president said, referencing his other two sons – both of whom addressed the crowd prior to their father’s arrival. 

“Welcome to the scene, Barron,” the ex-commander in chief said, before remarking that Barron “had such a nice, easy life – now it’s a little bit changed.” 

Barron was recently seen riding in a golf cart with his father in a leaked video showing the former president slamming President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris in the days after the June 27 debate. 

In May, the 18-year-old was asked to be a Florida delegate at the Republican National Convention, but he declined the request. 

Barron, who at 6-foot-7 inches tall towers above his father, has largely stayed out of the political fray. 

The Trump family has not announced which college Barron will attend in the fall.
