Trump too 'busy' to get Melania a gift for her birthday

Posted April 27, 2018

Melania Trump is celebrating her 48th birthday, and Donald Trump said he got her a "beautiful card" to mark the occasion. Maybe I didn't get her so much", quickly adding, "I got her a attractive card, you know I'm very busy to be running out looking for presents. I tell you what ...

"Maybe I didn't get her so much", Trump said, before stumbling over his words, saying: "I tell you what - she has done..."

The Fox and Friends hosts then did what any TV host would do and asked what the president got his wife for her birthday.

"Trump tried to hold Melania's hand and she is not having it, man", said Stephen Colbert on the "Late Show" Tuesday night. "I got her a handsome card and some lovely flowers". I got her a lovely card.

The incident happened when the president and first lady gathered on the White House lawn with French President Emmanuel Macron and first lady Brigitte Macron.

USA president Donald Trump on Thursday said he would give himself "A plus" for the performance of his administration in more than a year. No doubt the festivities will include the first couple's 12-year-old son Barron Trump.

'And, in all fairness to Fox, you guys don't always treat me great, but you treat me fairly.

Former first lady Michelle Obama, for instance, received that exact gift from her husband on her 54th birthday in January.
