Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton took to Twitter on Monday to defend President Donald Trump's youngest son Barron Trump after he was criticized for his casual dressing style in a recent media report.

Clinton shared a report by Daily Caller titled “It’s High Time Barron Trump Starts Dressing Like He’s In the White House.” The article said Barron was not “dressing” like he was the first son months after Trump was handed reins to the presidential office.

“Time and time again Barron has proved that he’s just a normal 11-year-old kid, despite the fact that his dad is the President of the United States and he lives in the White House,” the report said.

Daily Caller referred to the latest picture of the president, the first lady, and their son that showed them returning to the White House from New Jersey on Sunday. While Trump was photographed wearing a custom-made suit and tie, Melania Trump was a vision to behold wearing an elegant dress. But Barron stepped out of Air Force One dressed in a red-colored t-shirt that read "On Your Mark Tiger Shark", khaki shorts and suede loafers.

The news network made a sharp remark at the 11-year-old's dress sense and said it looked like he was coming back from a “trip to the movie theater,” adding, “The youngest Trump doesn’t have any responsibilities as the president’s son, but the least he could do is dress the part when he steps out in public.”

This is not the first time that the youngest Trump has been attacked for keeping it casual. A couple of months ago, Barron came under fire on social media for wearing a blue T-shirt that "the Expert" written on the front, according to the Telegraph.

Having lived in the White House for eight years during her father’s presidential term, Hillary and former President Bill Clinton's daughter knows a thing or two about the pressures of being a first daughter. Clinton has stood up for Barron earlier as well as she too was under the media scanner from the age of 12 to 20.

Trump's youngest son is the first boy to enter the White House since John F Kennedy Jr. When he was criticized for appearing bored during his father's inauguration speech, Clinton condemned both the media and the critics on social networks calling Barron abnormal or worse — autistic, for behaving the way he did on Trump’s inauguration day.

“Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does - to be a kid,” she tweeted. Clinton, however, took a dig at the president’s controversial policies at the same time, ending her tweet with “Standing up for every kid also means opposing @POTUS policies that hurt kids.”

Barron has been criticized not only for the kind of clothes he wears but also for his behavior when he is with his father in public. He also made headlines for all the wrong reasons when he was seen yawning and rolling his eyes during his father's victory speech in November.
