Melania Trump is using social media to commemorate another landmark in her son Barron Trump’s life.
The former first lady took to Twitter on Saturday, March 20, to wish her only child, Barron William Trump, a happy 15th birthday. “Happy birthday BWT,” she wrote for her son, adding three red heart emojis.
Melania followed the post with a photo of dark balloons with the word “15”.

After Melania Trump wished her son Barron a happy 15th birthday, Trump critics retaliated with scathing tweets.
Some of the responses were as follows:
“Even the birthday picture is all dark sepia tones, very strange lol.”
“At least he’s not in a cage at the southern border.”
“I hope Barron has a wonderful birthday … kids deserve to be kids… and know that Melania with always celebrate having an anchor baby, yet not accept anyone non white the same privilege …”
“Wow….that is a very dark meme for a birthday.
Very bad vibe to it.”
“Reading the responses … people are so sick,” one Twitter user said. This is a mother who is happy for her children.

This seems to be a Trump tradition, as she tweeted a similar post with a picture of silver balloons spelling out “14” when Barron turned 14 last year.
