It appears the Secret Service and NYPD are indeed taking measures to minimize the disruption caused by Melania and Barron staying put in NYC. TMZ writes that instead of implementing full street closures any time the young Trump moves to and from school, streets will be blocked off in a rolling pattern to accommodate the boy’s armed motorcade.
According to TMZ’s sources, the plan would only require that streets be closed off for a few minutes as the car carrying Barron passes. Moreover, the route would be changed regularly for security purposes and the NYPD will help ensure that roads reopen in a timely fashion.
In tow, of course, will also be Melania who dutifully escorts her son to his private school every day without excuse. As we wrote previously, Melania opted to stay in the city—much to the chagrin of New York taxpayers—so that Barron could finish out the school year. Come summer, the pair will reportedly transition to D.C.
Barron will return to school on Wednesday, and we’ll see then if this all works out as planned.
