President Donald Trump and his wife Melania made a joint appearance at their son Barron’s high school graduation in Florida on Friday.

Photos captured the couple in attendance watching Barron walk across the stage as one of 116 seniors that received their diplomas from the Oxbridge Academy in West Palm Beach on Friday. Barron reportedly switched to Oxbridge Academy when Trump left the White House in 2021.

As seen in photos, Trump and Melania sat with families of students in the bleachers. In preparation for the former president’s arrival, U.S. Marshals and deputies from the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office patrolled the highway and taped off the sidewalk to ensure it was a safe attendance for him.

While the families were seated in the bleachers, two police snipers were stationed above the announcers’ box to ensure the former first couple’s safety.

Trump’s appearance at the high school graduation elicited a round of applause from the crowd, according to the Daily Mail.

In addition to him and Melania, Melania’s father Viktor Knavs was also present at the event, sitting at the front of the bleachers with his daughter and her husband. The three were captured in a shot clapping and smiling as their son and grandson received his diploma.

Trump’s attendance at his son’s graduation comes amid a break in his hush money trial in Manhattan. After Trump pushed for weeks to attend Barron’s graduation, with Judge Juan Merchan presiding over the trial leaving the decision in limbo for a while, he later granted Trump’s request on April 30.

Informing the court of his decision, Merchan said, “I don’t think the May 17 date is a problem. Mr. Trump can attend that date, attend his son’s graduation.”

Before Merchan granted Trump the permission, there was some level of certainty flying around that the Democrat judge would deny Trump’s request to miss a day in court for his trial to go to Florida for the graduation.

Just a day before Merchan granted his request, the GOP presidential candidate slammed him and the case, saying, “Barron’s a great student and he’s very proud of the fact he did so well and was looking forward for years to having his graduation with his mother and father there.”
