Middle-Schooler Drops “Trump” Last Name After Persistent Bullying

“The parents of Joshua Trump, a student at Talley Middle School in Wilmington, claim their son started getting teased by classmates when Donald Trump first announced plans to run for the White House in June 2015”, according to New York Post.

The 11 year old is now planning on taking the last name of his father, Bobby Berto, after being persecuted for the last name of his mother, Megan Trump.
