President Donald Trump tweeted a video in honor of Mother's Day Sunday morning, in which he praised mothers across the country and gave a touching tribute to his own, who passed away in 2000.

"This is one of the most important days of the year", the president said.

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. "So, I say this to you as I think about my mother, Happy Mother's Day and God bless the United States of America".

The 71-year-old President of the United States took to Twitter yesterday to post a gushing video where he waxed lyrical about his "warm, loving and tough" mother.

The video doesn't mention first lady Melania Trump, the mother of the couple's 12-year-old son, Barron.

"I miss her a lot".

"So much of what I've done and so much of what I've become is because of my mother".

"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. "No mention of Melania, the mother of his child". Yet not 1 word about her.

"Melania has very low expectations for her husband to deliver any wonderful gifts for Mother's Day after he completely failed at her birthday", the unnamed source told the celebrity news outlet.

It is said she met Fred Trump at a party in Queens sometime before they had a hasty courtship and got married in 1936, when Mary was 24 before they had five children.

"Thanks for the sentiment but based on your historical terrible treatment of women in general and the Mother of your son Barron in particular you are the last person I would want extending any kind of support to my Mother or wife", a tweet added. She deserves a medal for staying with you. "I'm sorry your husband doesn't want to be with you on Mother's Day. oh, or did he ask what you wanted and you said, 'for you to leave?'" a Twitter user replied to the first lady. She posted a picture of pink roses on Instagram and Twitter, adding the message "Happy Mother's Day!".

"Happy #MothersDay! Today, and every day, let us express our utmost respect, admiration, and appreciation for our mothers who have given us the sacred gifts of life and unconditional love", the message reads.
