Trump forgets to mention Melania in Mother's Day post yet again, shocked Americans say 'he just doesn't care'
On Mother's Day, May 10, Trump had taken to social media to talk about other things except to wish the mothers in his life
POTUS Donald Trump failed to mention his wife Melania Trump while celebrating Mother's Day this year.
Trump is married to Melania with whom he shares son Barron. While the two reportedly live in separate quarters, he did not acknowledge the mother of his youngest child, leave alone his own mother. On Mother's Day which falls on May 10, Trump had taken to social media to talk about other things except wish the mothers in his life.
He did do the bare minimum and share a one-liner which simply read 'Happy Mother's Day'. His tweet did not seem to sit well with many social media users who took to comment on the same. Many slammed Trump's marriage to Melania as well, Political Flare reports.
One such user wrote, "Why be shocked? He has NEVER CARED FOR ANOTHER LIVING BEING BUT HIMSELF." A second social media user-added, "They are a marriage in name only. As soon as he is out she is gone! They don't even pretend to like each other in public! Sometimes she looks more miserable than him!"
A third person wrote, "Come on Melania, you don’t need him. I’m sure you have plenty of money now and don’t forget the money from the best seller."
A fourth person also wrote in to say, "Not shocked, it's not HIS MOTHER, and they don't even live together anymore. Marriage in name only. Melanie is paid for photo ops and events, period. end. of. contract."
This shouldn't be shocking to most since last year, Trump praised his late mother on Mother's Day and called her "incredible" but failed to mention his wife and First Lady.
Recently while interviewing with Fox & Friends, POTUS Trump had spoken about his own mother, Mary Anne Trump. Mary Anne had died in 2000 and had raised five children. "I had a great mom. I love my mom and she loved me. which is, I must tell you, is probably not easy to do but she was so good to me," Trump shared.
"I couldn't do any wrong, which is a big problem, which is maybe why I ended up the way I ended up," he added, Daily Mail reports.
On Sunday morning, May 10, on account of Mother's Day, the first lady took to Instagram to share a video where she was celebrating the holiday with her husband and son, Barron Trump, 14. In the video, Melania says, "On this Mother's Day I want to take a moment to honor and thank all of the caring, selfless and devoted moms of America."
"A mother's love cannot be replaced or replicated. Mothers provide the comfort and nurture a child needs in order to grow, prosper, and succeed. Mothers serve as role models for our children, motivating us to work hard and dream big. Mothers also play a vital role in society, shaping the morals and values of future generations of our leaders and innovators," Melania shared.
"Today, let's recognize and honor all of our mothers, grandmothers, and motherly figures for their wisdom, love, and commitment to their children and our families," she had added.
In the video, she was seen wearing a stunning pale pink dress that had been designed by Gabriela Hearst. The dress is estimated to cost approximately $3000. First daughter, Ivanka Trump, 38, also took to social media to wish her mother Ivana for Mother's Day.
She shared a few throwback pictures with her mother and had captioned the image, "Happy Mother's Day to all the Superwomen out there, especially those who may not be able to receive a warm embrace from their children today."
"Thank you for giving us life and love! Mom, showering you with gratitude and virtual kisses, today and always! xoxo," the caption read.
