Parents at a United Nations school are objecting to their children being invited to the New York Stock Exchange with Melania Trump.

“I am profoundly disappointed by the decision to accept this invitation,” said one UN worker and parent in a letter sent to a UN undersecretary-general.

That parent expressed concern, allegedly shared by others, the children’s appearance with the first lady would signal an endorsement of the Trump administration by their school and community.

As evidence of the strong anti-Trump sentiment among UN families, the parent points out that the school organized grief counseling and other activities to help students cope with President Donald Trump’s election win nearly three years ago.

“The sentiment is extremely strong,” the parent wrote.

‘Rudy is a lousy lawyer’: Ex-prosecutor reveals why nobody will hire Giuliani for legal work

Published

on

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is getting rich selling his access to the White House, in spite of being a "lousy" attorney, according to a former federal prosecutor.

Paul Butler was interviewed on MSNBC by Kendis Gibson on Saturday.

"One issue is that representing Donald Trump has been great business for Rudy Giuliani," Butler noted.

"Since he’s started to be his defense attorney, there’s a huge demand for Rudy’s services. And let's face it, Rudy is a lousy lawyer.
