"My loud, annoying dad is president... Also, my mom and sister are too sexy."
President Donald Trump’s son, Barron Trump, has become a manga star in Japan.
Whether you’re a Donald Trump supporter or not, you most likely have an indifferent view on his son, Barron. The 10-year-old son of the 70-year-old billionaire stood beside his soon to be President father as the votes were reeling in on election day. Struggling to stay awake, Barron’s sleepy and weary expression drew sympathy from the internet.

Young Barron sparked waves of solidarity around the world from those disappointed by Trump’s success, even reaching Japan. One Japanese Twitter user wrote, “Barron is beautiful. Even when his dad was giving the victory speech that sounded like the end of the world, seeing him helped me get through it”.

Tokyo-based artist Yuusuke Hori is Japanese Barron fans who ponder what life would be like for young lad. Artwork from Hori depicting Barron has recently surfaced online after it being used for a magazine cover.
Drawn in a suit and tie that matched what he was wearing during election night, a cartoon Barron Trump is seen in tears standing next to his father who has a luminous orange neck.
The comic/manga, which is yet to be completed, is titled, “My loud, annoying dad is president, so the quiet unassuming life I wanted is completely over.” The first chapter is called, “Also, my mom and sister are too sexy.”

Whilst there has been no confirmation about when “My loud, annoying dad is president, so the quiet unassuming life I wanted is completely over” will be completed, we are certainly looking forward to it.
