Melania Trump Thanks Chelsea Clinton for Defending Barron

The former First Daughter again slammed the media for criticizing the president's youngest son.

Melania Trump has publicly thanked Chelsea Clinton for defending her and President Trump’s 11-year-old son Barron after a website criticized him for the clothing he wore while traveling with his parents, CNN reports.

“It’s high time the media & everyone leave Barron Trump alone & let him have the private childhood he deserves,” Clinton tweeted earlier in the week, adding: “No child should be talked about in the below manner— in real life or online. And for an adult to do so? For shame.”

Melania, who pledged to tackle cyberbullying as the first lady, tweeted her thanks to the former First Daughter, noting that it’s important to support kids in expressing who they are.
