President Donald Trump posted a heartfelt video on Mother's Day, praising his late mother but something was amiss.
"Because of the powerful bond between a mother and her child, when they feel emotions, so do we - whether they are happy or nervous, sad or excited, we feel those things with them", she concluded.
Trump says his mother was "warm, loving, really smart", adding she "could be tough if she had to be". "I learned so much from my mother". Nor were his two ex-wives mentioned, who he has four other children with. I miss her a lot, ' Trump added.
On Mother's Day Sunday, many people took the time to celebrate both the women who raised them and the women who raised their families.
"Since the earliest days of our Republic, America's strength has come from the love and courage and devotion of our mothers", he said.
"As a mother myself, I know what goes into raising a child".
Previous reports indicate that Melania Trump would not be surprised at Donald Trump leaving her alone on Mother's Day.
Melania Trump, who he did not mention specifically in his Mother's Day tribute, posted a photo of pale pink roses with the caption 'Happy Mother's Day!' Yet not 1 word about her.
She found work as a domestic worker before marrying Trump's father, Fred Trump Sr, in 1936. "I'm sorry your husband doesn't want to be with you on Mother's Day. oh, or did he ask what you wanted and you said, 'for you to leave?'" a Twitter user replied to the first lady. And not just forgotten, and ignored the wife in a public speech congratulating citizens with the holiday, trump recalled his mother, but not mother of his son. "You have no respect for her; it is always about you", another person said. Oh like the mother of your children? The Mother's Day trip to the golf course marks the 113th time that Trump has gone golfing, almost double the pace of Barack Obama.
"Happy Mother's Day to ever mom out there, especially the remarkable moms in my life, Michelle Obama and my mother-in-law, Marian Robinson", it read.
