The parents are wary of pulling their son out of school now, team communications director Jason Miller told reporters.

“There’s obviously sensitivity to pulling their 10-year-old out of school in the middle of the school year. A more formal statement will be coming in the future,” Miller said.

He was responding to a New York Post report that Melania Trump, 46, and her son will keep living in Trump Tower at least until the end of the school year so the boy can continue attending his private school in Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

Trump will be sworn in as president on January 20.

US presidents have lived in and worked at the White House since John Adams took up residence there in 1800.
