Melania Trump thanks Chelsea Clinton for defending her son, Barron, against online bullying
First lady Melania Trump has thanked former first daughter, Chelsea Clinton for defending Barron Trump against online bullying.
She tweeted “Thank you @ChelseaClinton – so important to support all of our children in being themselves! #StopChildhoodBullying,”
Clinton came to Barron Trump’s defense after an article in the conservative news publication The Daily Caller criticized the President’s 11-year-old son’s fashion style and clothing. ‘The youngest Trump doesn’t have any responsibilities as the president’s son, but the least he could do is dress the part when he steps out in public,” entertainment reporter Ford Springer wrote in the story.
The article received widespread criticism, including a tweet from Clinton that reads, “It’s high time the media & everyone leave Barron Trump alone & let him have the private childhood he deserves”
