Well, this is awkward! First Lady Melania Trump is celebrating her 49th birthday today, Thursday, April 26, but her husband, President Donald Trump, just sadly admitted he didn’t get her anything for her special day. When asked during a new interview what gift he got Melania for her birthday the POTUS replied, “Well, I better not get into that because I may get in trouble. Maybe I didn’t get her so much.”
He continued, “I tell you what, she has done — I got her a beautiful card. You know, I’m very busy to be running out looking for presents, okay! But I got her a beautiful card and some beautiful flowers and she did a fantastic job with [our State Dinner for] France.”
Though Donald, 71, confessed he dropped the ball on getting his wife a birthday gift, he did remember to wish her a great day during his Fox & Friends chat. “I picked a very, very special day [to do this interview] because it’s Melania’s birthday. So I said, ‘Let’s do it on Melania’s birthday.’ So happy birthday to Melania,” he said during the Thursday broadcast. He has yet to send Melania any birthday love on his Twitter or Instagram accounts today.
Donald’s eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, did, however, wish her stepmother a happy birthday via Twitter in the early afternoon of April 26. “Happy birthday to @FLOTUS, an incredible wife, mother, and First Lady!” the 36-year-old wrote. Donald Trump, Jr. — who recently announced his divorce from wife Vanessa Trump — similarly wrote on Twitter, “Happy birthday @FLOTUS! Wishing you an incredible day.”
