People in Japan who were watching the speech on TV quickly took notice of Trump and Melania's 10-year-old son, Barron Trump.

In particular, just how tired the boy looked.

This was first pointed out by Twitter user @sakurajimanini, whose tweet has since been retweeted almost 10,000 times.


"Guys, the boy behind Trump is fighting so hard not to fall asleep, so please watch Trump’s speech."

They thought he was very cute.

"Who’s that cute boy standing behind Trump? If anyone knows, please reply!"

But were also very concerned for his wellbeing.

"I don’t know if that boy on TV is Trump’s son or grandson. I heard he’s very cute, but I wonder if he’ll start looking like his father when he grows old."

It was 3 a.m. after all.

"I was watching Trump’s speech video on the train, but doesn’t that boy behind him look super bored? Is he okay?"

It's pretty safe to say that Barron Trump's found himself some fans in Japan.
