President Donald Trump on Monday announced the guests invited at the State of the Union address, Fox News informed.
The White House sent invitations to 13 people to attend the address on Capitol Hill. Those invited come from many different backgrounds, including a young boy who shares the same last name as the President.
Josh Trump, a sixth grader in Wilmington, Delaware, is set to attend the address. The 11-year-old has been bullied at school because of his name, the mother of the child stated.
“They curse at him, they call him an idiot, they call him stupid,” Megan Trump told WPVI in December. “He said he hates himself, and he hates his last name, and he feels sad all the time.”
The school where the boy studies changed his name in their school system to his father’s name in order the bullying to be avoided.
Among Trump’s guests are relatives of a Nevada couple who was killed by an alleged illegal immigrant who was employed as a landscaper at their home.
Gerald David, 81, and Sharon David, 80, were killed on Jan. 16. Wilber Ernesto Martinez-Guzman, 19, of El Salvador, was charged last week in their deaths. Martinez-Guzman is also accused of killing Connie Koontz and Sophia Renken days earlier.
The Davids’ relatives — Debra Bissell, Heather Armstrong and Madison Armstrong — were invited to the President’s address.
Alice Johnson, the woman whose life sentence was commuted by Trump in June, is also among those set to attend.
The 63-year-old woman’s sentence was reversed after reality TV star Kim Kardashian West took up her case and met with Trump at the White House to plead for clemency.
Johnson promised to Fox News in June that she’d “make [Trump] proud” after he gave her a “second chance at life.”
“Thank you so much, President Trump, for taking the time to look at my case and to really look at me,” she said.
