President Donald Trump used his weekly message to say “Happy Mother’s Day” with a tribute to his own mother, Mary MacLeod, who passed away in 2000.
“So much of what I’ve done and so much of what I’ve become is because of my mother,” President Trump said. “She was just incredible. warm, loving, really smart, could be tough if she had to be, but basically she was a really nice person.”

But one mother President Trump did not mention is his current wife, the First Lady. Many found this to be odd, since Melania Trump is the mother of their child, 12-year old Barron Trump.
And they made clear their disappointment.

Did anyone else notice that he failed to mention the mother of HIS child, Melania Trump? Those two really can't stand each other can they? Since he won't do it, Happy Mother's Day @FLOTUS! https://t.co/m247pL62PA

I wonder if he bothered to say this to his wife? https://t.co/9bTjzJXZlX

As usual it's all about you, what about the mother's of your children you man baby attention whore. Like Melania, who you cheated on when she became a mother. You are despicable. https://t.co/uk7HM0IOcP

This President, however, did remember his wife and the mother of his children:
