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.”
