Trump greets United States on Mother's Day, remembers his mom

This marks Trump's 113th visit to one of his golf properties, Trump National Golf Club, since taking office - he's been in office for 478 days.

"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.

Donald Trump's frequent golf trips have also drawn scrutiny, especially after Trump spent years attack Barack Obama for going golfing.

The relationship between Donald Trump and Melania Trump has been in and out of the headlines in recent months ever since the Wall Street Journal broke the news of an affair between the president and adult film star Stormy Daniels.

The president's message comes days after first lady Melania Trump shared her thoughts on the holiday during a White House event honoring military mothers and spouses earlier this week.

'My mother was a great person, ' the president said, adding that she met his father, Fred, when she was very young. Along with caring for the couple's 12-year-old son, Barron, she is focusing on children through her "Be Best" campaign.

Trump went on to talk about his own mother, the Scottish-born Mary MacLeod, who came to the United States in 1930 and became a citizen just over a decade later. "I learned so much from my mother".

"America's strength has come from the love and courage and devotion of our mothers".

Stewart, who calls his daughter Mila for short - "in public, I don't like to yell her name out loud" - advises parents to think twice.

'They helped us gain our independence. They pioneered the west and settled the frontier. He credited her with at least a portion of his own success, calling her "tough, if she needed to be" and "a really nice person".

'During WWII America's mothers helped build the greatest arsenal for Democracy, ' he added.

Trump then praised his late mother, Mary MacLeod, who died in 2000.
