Reunited and feels so …?
With a single tweet on Sunday evening, Melania Trump made it official: the White House is no longer operating with a first lady in absentia. FLOTUS has moved in.
“Looking forward to the memories we’ll make in our new home!” Melania Trump tweeted Sunday from her official @FLOTUS account. An accompanying photograph featured a view of the Washington Monument from a window in the White House.

Her communications director Stephanie Grisham confirmed the move, tweeting, “It’s official! @FLOTUS & Barron have made the move to DC! #WelcomeHome.”

The first lady and the president held hands as they walked from Marine One to the White House on Sunday. Barron Trump strolled alongside them, dressed in a T-shirt emblazoned with the words, “The Expert.”
Hmm. I wonder what position Barron will be given in the administration?
Melania Trump’s parents, Viktor and Amalija Knav, were also on board Marine One.
In May, Melania confirmed she would be moving into the White House once Barron finished at his current school.
The statement explained Barron will attend St Andrew’s Episcopal school, a private preparatory school in Potomac, Maryland, after completing fifth grade at Columbia Grammar and Preparatory in Manhattan.
Melania said she chose the school because “it is known for its diverse community and commitment to academic excellence.”
The security arrangement for Melania and Barron Trump’s remote residence was estimated to have cost the New York City government between $127,000 and $145,000 per day when they were the only Trump family members in town.
Fun fact: Barron will be the first male child to live at the White House since John F. Kennedy Jr. in 1963.
