An 11-year-old boy with the last name Trump will now be going by a different name at his Delaware middle school after being bullied by his peers.

His mother, Megan Trump Berto, told administrators at Talley Middle School in Wilmington, Delaware, that her son, Joshua, was being punched and bullied on a school bus because of his last name.

In a Dec. 6 Facebook post, Berto pleaded with parents whose children ride that school bus to discuss the topic of bullying.

“I had to sit down with my son and here [sic] him tell me that he hates himself and that he feels sad all the time,” Berto said.

The school’s principal, Mark Mayer, responded on Facebook to Berto’s comment that he was concerned about what allegedly occurred on the school bus and would contact her the following morning.
