Donald Trump Praises Late Mom On Mother’s Day But Does Not Mention His Wife Melania

May 14, 2018

Many famous and successful people over the years have thanked their mothers for boosting their confidence and helping them become who they wanted to be. As Abraham Lincoln said:

All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.

And Mother’s Day is a perfect occasion to remind moms that we appreciate their efforts, support, and love. On May 13th, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to share a touching video devoted to his late mother.

In it, he said that Mary MacLeod Trump was an incredible, warm, and smart woman. The president also added:

So much of what I’ve done and so much of what I’ve become is because of my mother. I miss her a lot.

While the video is heartwarming and touching, many noticed that Trump didn’t mention another key person in his life - wife Melania, with whom he shares a son Barron. He didn’t congratulate his 2 ex-wives as well.


Maybe, the Mother’s Day is not a big deal in the family of the POTUS. But this omission still managed to send Internet into frenzy.

On the other hand, Trump’s eldest son Donald Jr. devoted the entire tweet to his wife Vanessa. Considering that the couple prepares for divorce, it was a really warm reflection!

The U.S. Vice President Mike Pence also took to Twitter to salute the most important ladies in his life: wife Karen and mother Nancy Fritsch.
