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.”

“I miss her a lot,” he noted.

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.

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

Happy Mother's Day, to all the moms out there!

UPDATE:

Per the White House press pool, Trump arrived at the Trump National Golf Course in Sterling, Virginia, at 10:45 AM.
