President Donald Trump had a lot to say on Twitter on Mother’s Day — about China, about his Democratic challengers, about the Russia investigation — but one person he did not talk about was First Lady Melania Trump.
It was the second Mother’s Day in a row that the president didn’t mention his wife on social media, which is one of his preferred methods of public communication.
He did, however, post a broader “Happy Mother’s Day” message on Twitter, as did the first lady. The couple are parents to 13-year-old Barron.
In 2017, his first year in office, President Trump wished Mrs. Trump “and all of the great mothers out there a wonderful day ahead with family and friends!” But last year he posted no such celebratory note.
