You would think that being the most powerful person in the free world would mean you can do whatever you want. You get to make the rules, right? Wrong.

Just because you’re the President doesn’t mean you can live by whatever rules you want to, even in your own (temporary) house! The First Family actually has a number of rules they have to live by when they move into the White House, and it might make you reconsider how you treat your place.

For the most part, the President’s immediate family is expected to move into the White House as well. It’s rare if a family member doesn’t move in — unless it’s a child away at boarding school or for some understandable reason.

Moving into the White House isn’t always the most pleasing if a President has younger children, but it’s a tradition of the country. However, recently, the Trump Administration broke this tradition as Melania and her son Barron continued to live in their Fifth Avenue penthouse in New York City while Barron finished his schooling.
