Amidst one of the most closely-watched criminal trials, former President Donald Trump took a break to attend his youngest son Barron's high school graduation along with his wife Melania.

AceShowbiz - Donald Trump, accompanied by his wife Melania, arrived at the Oxbridge Academy in Florida. According to eyewitnesses, Trump's ten-vehicle Secret Service motorcade pulled into the school's heavily guarded entrance just minutes before the graduation ceremony started. Barron's towering presence in a blue cap and gown, coupled with a red sash, was a proud moment for the family.

Melania Trump, dressed in a navy blazer and white skirt, attended alongside her father, Viktor Knavs. The ceremony commenced with the school choir singing "America the Beautiful," and the master of ceremonies garnered applause by extending a special welcome to the former President and Mrs. Trump. Barron, who stands an impressive 6'7", stepped forward to accept his diploma, acknowledging the crowd before taking his seat.

While the event was a joyous milestone, Trump's criminal trial continues to dominate headlines. The trial, which resumed after the weekend, involves allegations that Trump instructed his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, to pay $130,000 in hush money to adult film star Stormy Daniels during his 2016 presidential campaign. Prosecutors argue that Trump attempted to cloak these reimbursements as legal service payments, thus falsifying business records.

Judge Juan Merchan had granted Trump's request to take Friday, May 17 off, enabling him to partake in Barron's special day. This decision came after false reports circulated that Merchan was denying Trump the chance to attend.

The trial, now in its fifth week, is slated to last six to eight weeks in total. It's been packed with high-stakes testimony, including Cohen being cross-examined by Trump's attorney, Todd Blanche.

A campaign insider shared that there was no chance Trump would skip Barron's big day. Melania has been notably protective of their son, even issuing a statement from her office that Barron would not serve as a delegate for the Florida Republican Party due to prior commitments.

For now, the Trump family celebrated a much-needed moment of pride amidst the swirl of legal controversies. As Trump trial proceedings pick back up, all eyes remain on the case's next developments.
