While the nation does its best to fight the pandemic spread of coronavirus, Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump’s son Barron William Trump is celebrating his 14th birthday. However, because of the current restrictions in place due to COVID-19, the President’s son is not going to be able to celebrate like in years past.

Last year, Barron spent his 13th birthday, which happened to fall during Spring Break, at the family’s home in Palm Beach, Florida. While this year’s birthday will take place at The White House, his mother wished him “Happy Birthday” on social media almost exactly to how she did the year prior.

In 2019, Melania tweeted out a photo of goldtone Mylar balloons that spelled out “13.” On March 20, 2020, she shared a photo on Instagram, this time using silver balloons to spell out “14.” His father has yet to make a public birthday announcement toward his youngest son, or any of his half-siblings.

It’s not easy attempting to celebrate a birthday amid coronavirus, especially in Washington D.C., where the number of people infected with coronavirus has been exponentially rising, including numerous members of Congress and White House staff members. As of March 19, the total of coronavirus cases in the district jumped from 32 to 71 – all in one day, with 13 positive tests coming from patients under age 40.
