Donald Trump Snubs Wife Melania Trump in Mother’s Day Tribute (Poor Melania)
You forgot someone, Donald Trump! The POTUS took to Twitter on Sunday, May 13 to share a Mother's Day tribute with his fellow Americans — and seemingly snubbed his wife, Melania Trump, in the process.
"My fellow Americans, this Sunday is one of the most important days of the year: Mother's Day. It's a special opportunity to thank all of the mothers and grandmothers in our lives. Since the earlier days of our republic, America’s strength has come from the love and courage and devotion of our mothers," he began in the clip, before sharing some history with viewers.

He then went on to praise his mother, who passed away in 2000, but didn't mention Melania, the mother of his 12-year-old son, Barron, before finishing. "My mother was a great person. Her name was Mary MacLeod. She came from Scotland and she met my father when she was very young. They were married for many, many years," he added. "I learned so much from my mother. She was just incredible. Warm, loving, really smart, could be tough if she had to be, but basically she was a really nice person."
Melania celebrated the holiday with a photo of a bouquet of pink roses with the caption, "Happy Mother's Day!"
Donald's snub to Melania may have come as a bit of a surprise to people considering for Mother's Day last year, Donald actually posted a sweet tribute to his wife. "Wishing @FLOTUS Melania and all of the great mothers out there a wonderful day ahead with family and friends! Happy #MothersDay," he said at the time. However, over the past few months, the couple has been dealing with reports of Donald's infidelities.
Melania shouldn't feel too bad though. The 71-year-old also forgot to give a shout-out to his daughter, Ivanka Trump, who is a mom to three kids, and his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, who is a mom to his son Eric's baby boy. Better luck next year, everyone…
