“He looks like two kids with a raincoat, sitting on top of each other”: A picture of Baron Trump has broken the net. Countless surfers were shocked to discover this week that the little boy who was photographed many times next to his father during his tenure as President of the United States, backed like a professional basketball player.
The photo was posted on Twitter last Sunday, so many celebrated Father’s Day around the world. “Baron Trump,” read the description of the tweet, which has since received more than 32,000 likes. The documentation shows the 16-year-old boy standing next to an anonymous woman at an event in Mar-a-Lago, Florida – and it can be seen in the picture that he is much taller than her.
The image has since gone viral on social media with more than 4,600 shares and 1,400 comments from stunned surfers. “Unbelievable,” wrote one surfer. “Baron looks like Donald Trump, if you’d stretch him along.” Another surfer, meanwhile, claimed the picture must be fake and added: “He didn’t have those hips the last time I saw him.”
According to the NY Post, Baron’s height is a little over 2 meters – which is 10 cm higher than his father and 23 cm higher than his mother, Melania. In fact, he is even taller than his older brothers, Donald Jr. (1.85 meters) and Eric (1.98 meters).
During a conference in South Carolina last year, the former US president joked about his young son’s height and said, “Baron’s height is now 2 meters, would you believe it? He’s only 15. Eric is just short – he’s only 1.98 meters.”
