Former President Donald Trump said Friday that Barron, his 18-year-old son, likes to give him political advice. “He’s a little on the tall side. I will tell you, he’s a tall one, but he is a good-looking guy. And he’s really been a great student. And he does like politics. It’s sort of funny,” Trump told “Kayal and Company” on Philadelphia’s Talk Radio 1210 WPHT. “He’ll tell me sometimes, ‘Dad, this is what you have to do.’”

Trump went onto discuss his future and the troubles of college application, especially with the chaos on campuses this year. “So anyway, he’s a good guy. He’s a senior now in high school, and he’ll be going to college. And you know, a lot of, a lot of these choices of colleges are changing because you see what’s going on in the last month,” Trump said.

The Daily Beast reported that New York University (NYU) was the youngest Trump child’s first choice, but it is unclear if that is still the case.

This follows a report from earlier this week that Barron has been selected to serve as a delegate for Florida at the Republican National Convention (RNC) to be held in July.

According to a GOP delegates list first reported by NBC News, Barron is scheduled to appear at the convention alongside his older half-brothers Eric and Donald Jr., his half-sister Tiffany, and Donald Jr’s fiancée Kimberly Guilfoyle, all of whom will number among Florida’s 41 total delegates. Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, who both served as White House senior advisors during the first Trump administration, have previously said that they have no desire to return to politics.

One Trump campaign member further revealed to Politico that Barron “is very interested in our nation’s political process” and is looking forward to participating in the convention. Another inside source told the Daily Mail that Barron is “very knowledgeable for someone his age” and is “also far more politically interested than people realize. […] I see all the attributes of a future President if he has the appetite for it. And why not? He has the Trump genes.”
