Barron Trump has grown up to be a very tall boy at his age, and his towering height seemed to be an issue to some.
Barron Trump accompanied his parents, President Donald Trump and Melania Trump, at the Republican National Convention. Several noticed the teenagers’ height when he and Mike Pence stood beside each other at the event because many noticed that the vice president didn’t even come up to Barron’s shoulder level.
Barron Trump too tall
Many believe that Barron Trump stands over six feet for his age. However, his height sparked debate, with many questioning his paternity.
Some Twitter users alleged that Barron is not Donald’s son.
“Is Barron even Trump’s son? Zero resemblance and has inherited height. A basketball player’s son maybe? #BarronNotATrump,” one wrote.
“Are we sure that Barron Trump is Donald’s son because he taller than Donald. He might be taller than the other Trump son,” another added.
Donald Trump is listed as 6' 3" and both Eric and Donald Jr. are listed as 6'1". I wonder how tall Barron's dad is?

However, those who questioned Barron’s height should think twice because both of his parents are tall.
Also, several Twitter users think Donald and Barron look the same.
“I dont really get democrat’s jokes that Barron trump isn’t Donald’s son. the kid looks exactly like him lol,” one wrote on Twitter.
“Barron looks too much like Donald as a child. He’s Trump’s kid,” another added.

Melania fired back after host seemingly questioned Barron’s real dad
In June, Food Network host, John Henson, made a joke that seemingly questioned Barron Trump’s paternity.
“I hope Barron gets to spend today with whoever his dad is,” Henson wrote on Twitter on Father’s day.
First Lady Melania Trump has always been very protective of her son. The FLOTUS released a statement to remind Henson and the rest to spare Barron from their jokes or attacks.
“Sadly we continue to see inappropriate and insensitive comments about (President Donald Trump’s) son,” Grisham said in a statement issued to Daily Caller on Monday.
“As with every other administration, a minor child should be off-limits and allowed to grow up with no judgment or hate from strangers and the media.”
Henson explained tweet
John Henson deleted his tweet mentioning Barron Trump and made it clear that it wasn’t his intention to take a dig at the child.
“With respect, I think you dissecting it is the issue. The joke was aimed at Trump and the mere mention of Barron’s name doesn’t mean it’s at his expense,” he wrote in another tweet.
“Although I respect your right to take issue with it.”
