Barron Trump made his campaign rally debut Tuesday night, when former President Donald Trump invited thousands of supporters to his golf club in Doral, Florida, and made a big statement about the 18-year-old.

“This is the first time he’s done this,” the former president said, looking around at the front rows of the audience. “Where’s Barron? Stand up. Look at him! … You’re pretty popular. He might be more popular than Don and Eric. We’ve got to talk about this. Hey, Don, we’ve got to talk about this, right?”

The 78-year-old former president said “welcome to the sunshine, Barron” and laughed that his youngest son “had such a nice, easy life — now it’s changed a little bit,” drawing loud cheers.

But Trump led the meeting with a new challenge to former President Joe Biden, whose re-election campaign was in jeopardy after his poor performance in debates late last month.

The former president initially said he wanted to debate Biden again — “next week” — which would coincide with the Republican Party convention.

He also said he wanted to play golf against Biden and bet $1 million on the deal.

“I also officially challenge Crooked Joe to an 18-hole golf tournament here. On Doral’s Blue Monster, one of the finest tournament golf courses in the world,” Trump said. “It will be one of the most watched sporting events in history.”

Trump said it could be bigger than the Ryder Cup or the Masters.

“I’ll even give Joe Biden 10 strokes, 10 strokes, that’s a lot. That means 20 strokes in case you don’t play golf,” he continued.

“And if he wins, I’ll give the charity of his choice — any charity he wants — $10 million,” the ex-president added. “And I bet he won’t take it.”

Biden’s campaign quickly responded, calling Trump’s rally “insane.”

“Joe Biden doesn’t have time for Donald Trump’s crazy antics. He’s busy leading America and defending the free world,” said campaign spokesman James Singer.

He noted that Trump’s meeting included the ex-president “inviting fictional serial killers to dinner, teasing little Marco Rubio, praising Tom Homan, the architect of Project 2025, and challenging the president of the United States to a round of golf.”

“Donald Trump is a liar, a convict, and a self-interested fraud — that’s normal.”

Trump has been on the campaign trail for 10 days, holding his final rally in Chesapeake, Virginia, the day after Biden’s debate. This allowed the Democratic presidential campaign to collapse as he remained unusually quiet.

The former president was seen attending festivities marking July 4.

During the rally on Tuesday night, Trump hurled a series of insults at his rival, surrounded by supporters and family members.

Donald Trump Jr. was among those in attendance who warmed up the crowd. He noted that Democrats don’t want Americans to own an AR-15, “but they gave a plant the nuclear codes.”

Trump Jr. was accompanied by his ex-wife Vanessa and three children — and his current fiancée Kimberly Guilfoyle.
