Donald Trump and his family will live at the White House during his presidency, despite rumors that Trump may opt to live in one of his many other valuable properties.
Trump confirmed this at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., when a reporter asked him on Sunday, USA Today reports.
However, his wife Melania and his son Barron, 10, won't join him at 1600 Pennsylvania until "after he's finished school." Barron will live in Trump Tower until the school year is over.
The rumor mill
Some sites, like Occupy Democrats, falsely reported that he did not want to stay in the White House. Trump did tell his aides he would like to spend time in New York when he can, The New York Times reports.
If Trump opted not to live in the White House, he would not be breaking any laws. The president isn't legally obligated to stay there, and George W. Bush spent one-third of his presidency at either his ranch, Camp David or his parents' home in Maine, CBS News reports.
Melania's move is unprecedented
However, Melania Trump opting not to move into the White House immediately is almost entirely unprecedented, The Washington Post reports.
The only first ladies not to live in the White House are George Washington's wife Martha (it hadn't been built yet) and Anna Harrison, wife of William Henry Harrison, who died one month after being sworn in.
According to Inside Edition, Trump Tower would not be a good secondary presidential residence, since it's on 5th Avenue, a major traffic artery with lots of pedestrians. His house in Palm Beach is much more secluded and could be safer.
