Melania Trump embarrassed as parents reject her invitation

Melania Trump’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham has told CNN that “Mrs Trump will be taking part in an iconic New York City tradition. She would visit the New York Stock Exchange next week and ring the famous opening bell. Melania is expected to be accompanied by several children from the UN International School (UNIS). Although there is only room for just 10 students to go on the tour with Melania, but still, parents felt their children would be used as political props and they expressed concerns their children’s appearance with the First Lady would signal an endorsement of the Trump administration.

Predrag Vasic, a UN public information officer, said in a letter to a UN undersecretary-general he was disappointed by the decision of the school to accept Melania’s invitation. According to him; “Their appearance together with the First Lady confers, by extension, on this US administration, the endorsement of our school and our community.” In his letter, Mr Vasic pointed out the school organised grief counselling and special activities with students to cope with the shock after Trump’s election win.

However. the school administrators are seeking a diplomatic solution to a standoff over the controversial invitation.
