First Lady of the United States Melania Trump has thanked Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former President Bill Clinton and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for defending her son against online bullies.
A Twitter user @mattyrenn had shared a now-deleted photo of Melania’s son Barron Trump with a quote from a conservative news publication The Daily Caller article saying:
The youngest Trump doesn’t have any responsibilities as the president’s son, but the least he could do is dress the part when he steps out in public.
Chelsea, a former white-house offspring herself, and no stranger to the knocks that come with the position, quickly came to his defence, quoting the tweet and saying:
Dear Matty-Barron is A KID. No child should be talked about in the below manner-in real life or online. And for an adult to do so? For shame.

The First Lady saw the tweet much later, and thanked Chelsea for defending her son. She wrote:
@ChelseaClinton – so important to support all of our children in being themselves! #StopChildhoodBullying
