Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does to be a kid
He will not live in the White House and will remain in New York where he attends school, but his father’s election has put him firmly in the spotlight.
It has also brought Barron vile abuse on social media since his father was inaugurated as President last Friday.
Critics have asked whether or not Barron is autistic because he had trouble paying attention during the oath-taking ceremony.
They joked that he is so pale he is a vampire and "more of a freak than his dad".
In response Miss Clinton Tweeted: "Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does to be a kid. Standing up for every kid also means opposing @POTUS policies that hurt kids."
Miss Clinton, 36, was just 12 years old when her father became President in 1993.
Mr Clinton won two consecutive terms meaning that she spent her rebellious teenage years as a member of the First Family.

She also had to live through the Monica Lewinsky scandal, where her father was nearly impeached for having an affair with the White House intern.
Miss Clinton has said that she was extremely grateful to her parents for giving her a semblance of normal life despite her father being the President.
She said that they always had dinner at the table every night even though she was "deeply aware that I was living in history".
Miss Clinton, who now works as the Vice Chair of her father’s Clinton Foundation, was praised by Trump supporters for the first part of her Tweet.
