The story of Keaton Jones, the bullied Tennessee middle schooler, is taking the nation by storm, pulling at the heartstrings of Americans everywhere, even President Donald Trump’s family.

A tearful Jones is seen asking why people bully, after he was picked up from school because he was too afraid to go to lunch, in a video posted on Facebook by his mother, Kimberly Jones.

The heartbreaking footage has resulted in a wave of celebrities coming out in support of the child, including  Dana White, president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, who offered to bring Jones to Las Vegas and “hang out at UFC Headquarters.”

Donald Trump Jr., father to five young children, responded to White’s tweet to say he would be happy to host the Keaton family, if the trip materializes.

“This boy is incredibly brave and the video really got to me. , If he takes you up on your offer to see UFC Headquarters, I would be honored to host him and his family at our place if they need somewhere to stay,” Trump Jr. tweeted.

The expression of support for Jones from Trump Jr., whose oldest child, daughter Kai Madison, is 10 years old,  is not all that surprising, given the abundance of children in the Trump family.

Large families are a Trump staple, with the president having five children, Donald Jr. and Eric, and daughter, Ivanka, all with his first wife, Ivana; a daughter, Tiffany, with his second wife, Marla Maples; and Barron, his son with Melania Trump.

Bullying is a signature issue for first lady Melania Trump. In September, she spoke out against bullying at a luncheon at the U.S. mission to the United Nations, encouraging parents to “come together for the good of our children because through them, our future will be defined.”

“No child should ever feel hungry, stalked, frightened, terrorized, bullied, isolated or afraid, with nowhere to turn,” the first lady said.

Mrs. Trump made a surprise trip in October to a middle school in Bloomfield Hills, a suburb of Detroit, Michigan, and spoke with students about being inclusive with one another, according to CNN.

Ironically, the first lady’s visit was in support of a “No One Eats Alone Day” event, which encouraged students not to leave anyone out at lunchtime by finding new friends to eat lunch with – a campaign designed to help prevent bullying.

“Ask them what they like, what their hobbies are, so nobody becomes sad or stressed and everybody feels included,” Trump told the students. “I think it’s important that we choose kindness and compassion.”

Mrs. Trump nailed this.
