Tiffany Trump's 25th Birthday: As Marla Maples posts heartwarming message, media criticizes father Donald Trump's late wishes
Several media outlets called out the President for his late wishes while noting that he appeared to have forgotten her birthday last year.
Tiffany Trump, the youngest daughter of the US President, received best wishes from her father Donald Trump and mother Marla Maples on social media as she celebrated her big day on Saturday. Media outlets, however, took a keen interest in calling out the POTUS for sending in late birthday wishes for his daughter, some even pointing it out that he seemed to have forgotten it last year.
Maples melted hearts after she posted a darling photo of her holding baby Tiffany on Instagram with a caption: "On this day, 25 years ago, 12:50 PM in West Palm Beach, FL our beautiful daughter @TiffanyTrump was born. You are a blessed gift to this world and my life my girl...keep shining." However, Marla accidentally tagged the wrong 'Tiffany' at first while posting the birthday message, whose handle read @TiffanyATrump. But she corrected the caption soon after, Daily Mail reports.
The President posted a picture of him with Tiffany, late Saturday evening and captioned it: "Happy Birthday @TiffanyTrump, so proud of you!" The picture of the pair was from his birthday celebrations back in June 2017.

In keeping with mainstream media trends, several outlets criticized President Trump for his late wishes. They alleged that he was quite active on his Twitter throughout the day. Also, a couple of hours before posting the Instagram photo, the president tweeted a 'happy birthday' message to the US Navy, sending the media into a frenzy. "Happy 243rd Birthday to our GREAT @USNavy! #243NavyBday," he wrote.
Ivanka Trump, the First Daughter, posted a sweet selfie of her kissing Tiffany on the cheek in an Instagram birthday message for her 25-year-old sister. "Happy, happy birthday Tiffany!" she wrote. Tiffany posted some photos of birthday wishes from friend Lara Maggs on her Instagram story, although she herself has not been very active on social media of late.
