People are asking what happened to Barron Trump after a couple of Christmas photos of the President were shared on Twitter.

The GOP shared a tweet on Dec. 11 where people could sign the First Family's Christmas card. The photo featured Melania, Trump and all of the Trump children - minus Barron.

PRESIDENTIAL HOLIDAY: Memes mock Melania Trump's White House Christmas decorations

Another post shared by reporter Jon Passantino showed the 2017 official Trump Christmas portrait featuring Melania and the president - again missing Barron.

The fact that he was excluded from the photos has people wondering where the 11-year-old is and why he was left out.

"I'd love to see Barron in the first family Christmas card," said one person.

Another person sarcastically tweeted, "So nice of them to include Barron in the family Christmas card."

However, some stood by the couple's decision to leave the child out of the photos.

"It's fine that Barron isn't in the Trump family Christmas card," someone commented. "He's a kid and his privacy deserves to be respected, if that's what his family feels his best."
