While Melania Trump is known for her sartorial taste, another member of the first family – Barron, the youngest son of the US President Donald Trump – recently stirred news over his choice of dressing.

So much so that a conservative website went on to slam the 11-year-old for allegedly looking "like he was hopping on Air Force One for a trip to the movie theater."

As controversy brewed, however, young Barron found support from the former first daughter Chelsea Clinton, who took to Twitter to slam the publication's story titled, "It's High Time Barron Trump Starts Dressing Like He's In the White House."

In response to the scathing attack over Barron's clothes, the daughter of Bill and Hillary Clinton wrote, "It's high time the media & everyone leave Barron Trump alone & let him have the private childhood he deserves."

The latest debate was sparked by a controversial report that called out Trump's son for the way he dressed when he joined his parents for a public appearance.

"Donald Trump and Melania always depart the White House looking their best. The president wore a fine tailored suit and Melania wore an elegant dress just as jaw-dropping as the last. But then Barron steps out in a t-shirt, khaki shorts and some suede loafers," excerpts from the report read.

It continued with the attack, saying, "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."

While 37-year-old Clinton spoke up against the unwarranted scrutiny, this is not the first time that she has defended Trump's youngest child. Following an array of jokes and criticisms after Trump's inauguration in January, Clinton – who has been friends with Ivanka Trump – had rushed to Barron's defence.

"Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does - to be a kid," she shared on social media after the youngest member of the Trump family was criticised for looking bored during the event.
