Trump, Barron, and the dog [View all]

I just heard an interview with David Frum about his new book, Trumpocracy. One of the questions he was asked was, what does he find most despicable about Trump? His answer: the cruelty. He gave several notorious examples, including his treatment of the Khan family and his mocking of the disabled NYT reporter. Another example was a story I had never heard before, whereby, supposedly, Trump promised his son Barron he could get a puppy if daddy won the election. After his win, some friend of Trump offered a puppy to take to the White House. According to Frum, Trump showed Barron a photo of the dog and Barron was so happy he started to cry with delight. Not long after, Trump told his son there would be no dog. He simply broke his promise to his son.

Frum is one of few Republicans for whom I have a shred of respect. Does anyone know anything more about this story?
