( – At only 18 years old, former President Donald Trump’s youngest child will be entering the political arena for the first time.

On Wednesday night, Barron Trump was selected by the Republican Party of Florida to be one of Florida’s Republican National Convention’s at-large delegates.

According to Evan Power, chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, Trump’s youngest son, a high school senior, will be one of the state’s 41 at-large delegates to the national gathering, where his father will likely become the GOP’s official 2024 Presidential nominee.

Up to this point, the 18-year-old had been entirely out of the public and political spotlight, focusing his time on his studies. However, his name has recently appeared in headlines after his father shared concerns that he might not be able to attend Barron’s graduation because of the hush money trial in Manhattan.

Responding to those concerns, the judge overseeing the trial, explained there wouldn’t be a court date on May 17, which would allow Trump to attend his son’s graduation at a private high school near Mar-a-Lago.

Barron, will be joining his siblings, Eric Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Tiffany Trump, who will also be part of the Florida delegation to the GOP convention in Milwaukee which takes place from July 15 to July 18.

Eric Trump will serve as the delegation’s chair, making him Florida’s choice to present his father’s name for the nomination.

In a statement to ABC News, an official for the Trump campaign revealed that Barron “is very interested in our nation’s political process.”
