Former President Donald Trump’s youngest son, Barron, was offered an opportunity to become one of the Republican delegates to represent Florida at the RNC convention.

Trump’s youngest child, 18, was expected to make his debut on the political scene at the Milwaukee hosted convention, but turned down the opportunity to join three of Trump’s other children, Eric, Tiffany, and Donald Trump Jr., as delegates in July.

“While Barron is honored to have been chosen as a delegate by the Florida Republican Party, he regretfully declines to participate due to prior commitments,” former first lady Melania Trump’s office announced on Friday.

The GOP is expected to formally endorse Trump as the the Republican presidential candidate at the convention, setting the stage for another electoral showdown with President Biden this November.

Earlier in the day, Trump labeled his youngest child as the “smart one,” and said he takes the teen’s advice about political issues.

“He’s seen it. He doesn’t have to hear. He is a smart one. He doesn’t have to hear much. But he’s, he’s a great guy,” Trump said during a radio interview on Friday.

“He’s a little on the tall side. I will tell you, he’s a tall one, but he is a good-looking guy.”

While extolling Barron’s virtues, the ex-president explained that the high school senior is a “great student” who enjoys politics and is currently scouting out colleges.

“It’s sort of funny. He’ll tell me sometimes, ‘Dad, this is what you have to do,’” Trump remarked.

In related news, Trump criticized the recent court developments in his hush money case as a “joke” and a “disgrace,” following the judge’s instructions to prosecutors to ensure Michael Cohen, their main witness, refrains from public commentary about the case as his testimony looms.

“There is no gag order for Michael Cohen. What the judge did was amazing, actually. Everybody can say whatever they want, but I’m not allowed to say anything about anybody. It’s a disgrace,” Trump said after court on Friday.

“What he just did now is a joke. It’s a disgrace,” he repeated.

Trump’s legal team has repeatedly called out Cohen’s public statements against Trump, considering Trump’s responses are constrained due to his gag order.

Todd Blanche, Trump’s lawyer, pushed on Friday for Cohen to be silenced “in the same way President Trump is” prevented from publicly speaking.

Judge Merchan said he would only “direct” the prosecutors to advise Cohen that he was “asking him to refrain from any more statements about this case,” rather than slap him with a gag order, like Trump.

Cohen is slated to testify on Monday and is viewed as a critical witness for the district attorney’s office.<

He was the one who arranged the $130,000 hush money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels, who alleged an affair with Trump in 2006, a claim he refutes.
