What's in a surname? A lot, sir. If we twist William Shakespeare's popular line, that is probably the answer we're going to get. It's sad how silly things such as a mere surname can lead to, but we’ve seen it one too many times. Something similar happened to a sixth grade student in the United States. Joshua Trump from Wilmington, Delaware, faced extensive bullying at his school for sharing the same surname as US President Donald Trump.
After learning about the incident, Trump has reportedly invited the sixth-grade student to attend his second State of the Union speech to Congress on Tuesday. "He appreciates science, art, and history. He also loves animals and hopes to pursue a related career in the future. Unfortunately, Joshua has been bullied in school due to his last name. He is thankful to the First Lady and the Trump family for their support," a statement from the White House read.
In the annual speech, Trump is believed to share his success stories as well as define his future goals for the welfare of the States. Former drug dealer Matthew Charles who went through a transformation during his tenure behind the bars and was the first prisoner to be released under a criminal justice reform law was also invited.
