Chelsea Clinton knows all about the neverending criticism of the public. In a display of compassion for the other side – and an unexpected move no doubt – Chelsea asked for the public to respect Trump’s grandchildren following the announcement of Donald Trump Junior’s divorce from his wife, Vanessa.
In a tweet released on the 15th of March, Clinton wrote, “Please respect the privacy of President Trump’s grandchildren.” The former daughter of the first lady said they’re “just kids” and should not be subjected to sensationalism and click-bait articles.
Clinton sent out the tweet just a couple of hours after it was revealed that Vanessa filed for divorce in the Supreme Court of Manhattan.
Please respect the privacy of President Trump’s grandchildren. They’re kids and deserve to not be your clickbait. Thank you.

Junior and the former model wrote a joint statement which announced their intention to separate. As you may know, the couple has five children together, and they intend on taking care of them and showing mutual respect at all times.
Donald and Vanessa have Kai, Donald III, Tristan, Spencer, and Chloe, who are 10, 8, 6, 5, and 3 respectively. Clinton is no stranger to the life of politics, as she was, at one point, the daughter of two very famous politicians.
Undoubtedly, Clinton knows what it’s like to be subjected to ruthless criticism and mean comments, especially in the age of social media.
And this isn’t the first time she’s defended the Trump family, as back in January of 2017, Clinton tweeted that Barron Trump deserves a chance to live peacefully and to develop as a person just the same as everyone else.
Back in November, Clinton did the same thing for Malia Obama, the daughter of former president and first lady, Barack and Michelle Obama. Chelsea said Malia’s “private life as a young woman” doesn’t deserve to be clickbait sensationalism for the sake of views, ratings, and profit.
