Joshua Trump State of the Union

Joshua Trump was one of 17 people invited by US president Donald Trump and his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, to attend the event on Tuesday.

The student from Delaware, who is not related to the president, made news last year after his parents described how other children would chant his surname on the school bus.

“Unfortunately, Joshua has been bullied in school due to his last name,” a statement from The White House said.

“He is thankful to the first lady and the Trump family for their support.”

The State of the Union address is a speech that the President of the United states gives every year to politicians and the American people.

The speech outlines what is happening in the country and is broadcast throughout the US and the world.

Every president has had to do this speech each year because it’s written in the American Constitution – the laws that outline the rights of the people.

Other invited guests to the State of the Union include Grace Eline, a child who was diagnosed with a brain tumour when she was nine; Judah Samet, a survivor of the Holocaust and a shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue in October 2018; and 63-year-old Alice Johnson who was released from jail by President Trump after a campaign by reality TV star Kim Kardashian.

Joshua Trump, a schoolboy bullied over his name, wins fans after falling asleep at State of Union

Joshua Trump, an 11-year-old who was bullied because of his surname, was among the guests at the annual State of the Union address to Congress on Tuesday night.

The schoolboy, who had to drop out of school because of the abuse and told his mother he had lost the will to live, was invited to the speech by First Lady Melania Trump.

Sitting two seats along from the first lady, Joshua won fans on social media after he was spotted asleep during the speech.

“Joshua Trump,” rules, one user commented as pictures of the boy spread.

But achieving national fame was never the goal for the sixth-grader from Wilmington, Delaware – who, like many his age – just wanted to fit in.

“I’m tired of the bullying,” the schoolboy told the news site Inside Edition in December.

“They say are you related to Donald Trump? And I say, ’Would I be here if I’m related to him?’”

The constant mockery became so bad that his parents eventually pulled him out of school in 2017 and taught him at home for a year, before re-enrolling him when he was due to start middle school.

But the issues he was facing did not go away.

His mother Megan Trump tried to sign him up for a different school bus to avoid certain students responsible for the constant teasing, but on the very first trip the driver asked him about his name.

“He said he hates himself and he hates his last name and he feels sad all the time and he doesn’t want to live feeling like that anymore. And as a parent, that’s scary,” his mother told a local television news station.

His school instructed his teachers not to use his surname any more, and disciplined five students, who apologised to the boy.

“It went to the point where he and the school were going to change his last name” and instead go by “Berto” – his father’s surname, Claudio Cerullo, the founder of the site TeachAntiBullying.org, told AFP. “But we encouraged him not to do that.”

His organisation awarded Joshua a national anti-bullying medal for courage late last year, which prompted the White House to reach out last month to invite him to the annual presidential speech.

Melania Trump has made her anti-bullying campaign the centrepiece of her legacy as first lady, although there have been few concrete steps aside from public appearances and roundtable discussions.

“I hope that it brings greater awareness to this issue because it’s not just about Joshua Trump,” said Mr Cerullo. “There’s many, many other children who are victimised in the United States and around the world.”

But he acknowledged the move puts the first lady in an awkward spot, since her husband is frequently slammed for his denigrating public attacks on political foes, critics and the media, and often resorts to petty name-calling.

“The first lady is in a very difficult position,” Mr Cerullo said. “I’m hopeful that she’s very impactful upon on her husband.”
