Barron Trump

Barron Trump, President Donald Trump’s 11-year-old son, has found a new outlet for his soccer passions. According to the official roster, Barron has joined D.C. United’s U-12 team.

Yeah, sure enough, the First Kid is playing youth soccer and is doing so with D.C. United’s academy system.

Barron has appeared in four games so far and should continue to see playing time as the season started this month and goes all the way through June.

D.C. United began participating in the White House Easter Egg Roll during Barack Obama’s presidency, and that continued this past spring with Donald Trump in office. That was when we first found out Barron was such a big soccer fan. He showed up to the Easter Egg Roll in a full Arsenal kit.

According to the Washington Post, Barron got the opportunity to meet forward Patrick Mullins and midfielders Julian Buescher and Marcelo Sarvas. The pros caught on to the First Kid’s passion for the game:

“He was very knowledgeable about soccer, knew about D.C. United and was interested to know more,” Mullins said of Barron. “Little kid to have a passion for the game and to be knowledgeable and have a conversation with us, it makes me feel good about kids growing up playing the game.”

Who knows? Maybe Barron Trump is the future of American soccer.
