Wayne Rooney made to look small by Donald Trump's son Barron as England legend visits White House

But when he visited the White House he found junior Trump towers!

President Trump's 12-year-old son Barron lorded it, looking a good two inches taller that Rooney as he greeted the former England skipper.

Rooney was personally invited to the White House Christmas party because Barron is a huge DC United fan.

That meant Barron, normally so publicity shy, was happy to pose with DC'S newest hero.

But it was 5ft 9ins Rooney who had to look up to the boy who idolises superstar footballers like him.


Sadly for the Manchester United legend, 33, there had been no fairytale ending to his first season in the MLS.

The former Everton striker missed a shootout penalty as DC exited to Columbus Crew in the first round of the play-offs.

It has not yet been confirmed what aspects of world politics Rooney and Trump senior discussed when they bumped into each other at the early Xmas party.

But true Brits will hope Rooney set the most powerful man in the world to rights on one major issue of international diplomacy – by correcting Donald's use of "soccer" to "football".

Rooney was at the HQ of US Government with his wife Colleen, 32, and their four sons, Kai, nine, Klay, five, Kit, two, and nine-month-old Cass.

Also there were the President's daughter Ivanka and Vanessa Trump, who recently divorced Donald Trump Junior.

A source told the Sun: "Coleen and Wayne were stunned when they received a personal invite from Donald inviting them to the White House.

“It wasn’t political. For them this was a chance to go inside one of the most iconic buildings in the world and give their children this experience of being there for the Christmas party, which is always spectacular.

“They were also given a guided tour of President’s Trump’s private rooms but the Oval Office was off limits.”

Rooney seems to be relishing his first Christmas away from British football's busy festive schedule – except for injuries.

And his new mellow, almost establishment life is a far cry from his firebrand years more than a decade ago.

Now he's gone all the way from red cards to top Trumps.
