Trump Invites 11-Year-Old Bullied Because His Name Is Trump To Attend State Of The Union As Special Guest




The White House on Monday announced that Joshua Trump, an 11-year-old who has been bullied for having the same last name as President Trump, will be a special guest for Trump’s State of the Union address.

The 6th-grader is among about a dozen people invited by the president and first lady Melania Trump to the State of the Union on Tuesday, the White House said Monday.

The guests include family members of a couple killed by an immigrant illegally in the country, a young boy who says he faced bullying due to his sharing the last name “Trump,” a survivor of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting and Alice Johnson, the woman Trump granted clemency last year.



“This year’s guests come from all different walks of life, and each has an incredible story to tell. No matter their background, each one has something important in common: They represent the very best of America,” the White House said in a statement.

More than 10 people will sit with the first lady during the address.

Joshua Trump was “thankful to the First Lady and the Trump family for their support,” the statement added.
