“Barron Trump Gets J. Crew Shirt Sold Out WITHIN HOURS,” reads a headline on former Alaska governor Sarah Palin’s website.

It seems like the first family is making an effort to appear more relatable by wearing affordable clothing, after Melania Trump was called out in May for wearing a $51,500 jacket. Ivanka Trump was spotted last week wearing a $35 dress from Target.
