Trump at war with Melania as he wants Barron to get involved in public life 'like his older siblings'
Donald 'believes it's time for his son to accept his legacy and get involved in his public life, like his older siblings'
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Former POTUS Donald Trump and former first lady Melania are apparently feuding over their son Barron, 17, as he is being used as a "political pawn." The disagreement over Barron's exposure to the political arena has resulted in a crisis in the couple's marriage as both refuse to back down.
The former president, facing four indictments, supposedly drew the ire of his wife of 18 years after dragging the couple's only child into the heart of his re-election campaign with a single tweet.
According to RadarOnline.com, Melania is "seething with fury" after The Donald, 77, uploaded a photo of the rarely seen high schooler on social media in an attempt to disparage President Joe Biden.
Donald Trump 'believes it's time for his son to accept his legacy'
According to reports, Donald "believes it's time for his son to accept his legacy and get involved in his public life, like his older siblings."
Donald Trump Jr, 45, Ivanka, 41, Eric Trump, 39, and Tiffany Trump, 29 have always been loyal supporters of their father, often speaking at public forums and on the campaign trail or tweeting to endorse his political ambitions.

A family insider told RadarOnline.com. "He has always believed, despite Melania's wishes, that Barron would walk in the same footsteps as Don Jr, Ivanka, Eric and Tiffany. But Melania has again made it very clear that's only going to happen over her dead body."
Disagreement has sparked a 'war' between Trump and Melania
The insider said that it has sparked a "war" between the couple, who have not been seen together since posing for photos at Ivanka's daughter Arabella's birthday. The couple had a private meal with the 11-year-old just weeks before she had her Bat Mitzvah in June 2023.
According to sources, Melania, who has eschewed the campaign trail this time around, has no intention of aiding Donald in getting re-elected as President.
She has also been missing from his many criminal proceedings. According to sources close to the matter, Melania has quietly threatened to relocate from Mar-a-Lago to New York, leaving her husband alone in Florida.
A source dished, "That would be devastating to Donald. With all the negative press swirling around him, the last thing he needs for his public image is another broken marriage." The New York Times stated that prior to the Barron fiasco, the former first lady had kept her personal group extremely close.
According to insiders, Melania consults with her stylist and hairdressers. According to the insider, she would "sometimes" meet Donald for supper. Donald, for his part, has kept relatively silent on his wife's lack of public support.
The 2024 hopeful said during a July 28 episode of 'The John Fredericks Show', "It's always unpleasant when you have to go in and tell your wife that, 'By the way, tomorrow sometime I'm going to be indicted, And she says, 'For what?' And I say, 'I have no idea. I have absolutely no idea.' "
