Trump's heartfelt video message on Mother's Day is endearing, however, he seems to have forgotten that the FLOTUS is also a mother.
"My fellow Americans, this Sunday is one of the most important days of the year: Mother's Day".
"Because of the powerful bond between a mother and her child, when they feel emotions, so do we - whether they are happy or nervous, sad or excited, we feel those things with them", she concluded.
"I miss her a lot".
But despite having five children by three different women Trump didn't mention any one of them - most notably his wife Melania. Trump's decision to go golfing rather than spend the day with his wife - and the mother of his fifth child - has drawn some scrutiny from critics.
In the video, Trump lauded his late mother, Mary MacLeod Trump, who was a Scottish immigrant, for being the reason for most of what he has achieved in life. "She was just incredible. warm, loving, really smart, could be tough if she had to be, but basically she was a really nice person".
Previous reports indicate that Melania Trump would not be surprised at Donald Trump leaving her alone on Mother's Day. "HAPPY TURN THE OTHER CHEEK WHILE YOUR HUSBAND PAYS A P*RN STAR 130K IN HUSH MONEY DAY", Kristina Wong tweeted back to Melania Trump".
"Happy Mother's Day to Melania".
Fast forward to present day and both the president and first lady sent out Mother's Day greetings in a pair of May 13 posts on Twitter.
Another commented said 'way to mention your wife, the First Lady, the woman who is helping you raise your 12-year'old son a person said, while another said 'you forget someone? You wouldn't give Melania a special wish?'.
After posting the message, Trump spent the rest of the day on the golf course.
Former President Barack Obama also took to Twitter to show his appreciation for his wife, Michelle Obama, and his mother-in-law, Marian Robinson.
