Washington DC [United States], May 13 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump on Sunday greeted his country on Mother's Day in a video message, wherein he remembered his own mother as well.
"America's strength has come from the love and courage and devotion of our mothers. Through their grit, determination and incredible spirit, they pioneered the West and settled the frontier," Trump said in a minute-long video posted on his Twitter handle.



He used the opportunity to talk about his own mother Mary MacLeod, who was born in 1912 and died in 2000. She was a Scottish-born American.
"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," the US President said, adding, "So much of what I've done and so much of what I've become is because of my mother. I miss her a lot."
Trump's mother became a US citizen in 1942. As the wife of real estate developer Fred Trump she raised five children and engaged in philanthropic activities in the New York area. (ANI)
