President Trump Releases Mother's Day Tribute to His Mother, But Forgets His Wife

President Donald Trump put out a touching tribute to his mother, and wished the nation a Happy Mother's Day this weekend. Unfortunately, there are some people who slipped the president's mind when he was sending out Mother's Day wishes. Namely, he forgot to send wishes to his wife, Melania.

Social media was alight with wishes of 'Happy Mother's Day' on Sunday. Vice President Mike Pence jumped on Twitter to send holiday wishes to his own mother, and the mother of his children.

"Happy Mother’s Day to my amazing Mom, Nancy Fritsch, to my wonderful wife, Karen (the best Mom 3 kids could ever have!) and to all of America's incredible Moms! Have a great #MothersDay!" he wrote.

Donald Trump Jr. sent out a Mother's Day wish to his estranged wife. Despite the divorce, he wrote, "Happy Mother’s Day to the best mom in the world. Vanessa enjoy your day, you’ve certainly earned it dealing with those 5 munchkins and me."

The Obamas sent out their tweets for the occasion as well. "Happy Mother’s Day to every mom out there, especially the remarkable moms in my life, @MichelleObama and my mother-in-law, Marian Robinson," former President Barack Obama wrote.

The former first lady chimed in with a mention of her own mother. "It’s impossible for any picture to truly capture what my mother, Marian, has meant to me. Happy #MothersDay to all of the moms out there, and especially to my own."

President Trump put out a video to talk about Mother's Day, and shared some memories of his own late mother, Mary Trump (nee McLeod), a Scottish immigrant. Trump's mother passed away in 2000, but he remembers her fondly.

“She was just incredible,” he said. "Warm, loving, really smart, could be tough if she had to be, but basically she was a really nice person."

“So much of what I’ve done and so much of what I’ve become is because of my mother. I miss her a lot,” he added.

The sincere holiday wish was lovely, but people couldn't help noticing one thing. The president forgot to send a happy Mother's Day wish to the mothers of his own children and grandchildren.

Trump has had children with three different women. Ivana Trump, his first wife, is the mother of Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric. Marla Maples, his second wife, is the mother of his youngest daughter, Tiffany Trump.

He also could have mentioned a 'Happy Mother's Day' wish to daughter and mother of three, Ivanka, as well as the other mothers of his grandchildren, daughters-in-law Vanessa Trump and Lara Yunaska.

Most notably, though, Mr. Trump didn't mention First Lady Melania Trump. This seems an odd oversight, considering the FLOTUS has just launched an initiative aimed at helping children by working on several issues, such as fighting the opioid epidemic and stopping cyber bulling. Her entire platform has essentially become about motherhood with the 'Be Best' campaign.

Perhaps it was a minor oversight, or perhaps Mr. Trump opted to give these wishes to these other important mothers in his life in a more personal way. But the lack of mentioning Melania, or even sending a public tweet with a nice word, had the internet buzzing for a few hours.
