A student at a Delaware school will be going by a different name in class after relentless bullying.
The situation had the parents reaching out to the local news for help, saying their son’s bullying wasn’t being addressed by the Brandywine School District. The parents say the problem is their 11-year-old son Joshua Trump was being unmercifully picked on because of his last name.
The situation had the parents reaching out to Action News for help, saying their son’s bullying wasn’t being addressed by the Brandywine School District.
The problem: They say 11-year-old Joshua Trump was being picked on because of his last name.
“They curse at him, they call him an idiot, they call him stupid,” said his mother, Megan Trump.
“He was getting ridiculed and bullied for the fact that his last name was Trump,” said his father, Bobby Berto.
His parents say the bullying started for Joshua – who is not related to the 45th president – when Donald Trump began running for office.
“I pulled him out of school and homeschooled him for a year,” his father said.
This year, Joshua was moving into middle school, so his parents thought things would change.
They even said they met with school officials and teachers to tell them about Joshua’s past problems.
It’s a fact that the Principal of Talley Middle School, Mark Mayer, acknowledges.
“I do know the teachers were aware of the last name, and I know in speaking with the student that the teachers do their very best to try not to say his last name,” Mayer said.
Joshua’s parents say the bullying didn’t stop. More
