Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton is encouraging Americans to let President Trump’s youngest son, Barron, “be a kid.”

“Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does — to be a kid,” Clinton tweeted on Sunday.

In the same post, she also criticized the Trump administration’s policies.

“Standing up for every kid also means opposing @POTUS policies that hurt kids."

Clinton rushed to Barron's defense after social media users mocked the 10-year-old on Inauguration Day on Friday.

Barron and his mother, first lady Melania Trump, will live in New York City until he ends his school year.
