President Trump had Americans furious this Mother’s Day after he posted a video of himself talking about his relationship with his mother.
In the short video, the president discusses his own mother, alongside several other important mothers throughout American history whose “love and courage and devotion” he said have helped build the nation.
“America’s strength has come from the love and courage and devotion of our mothers,” he said. “Through their grit, determination and incredible spirit, they pioneered the West and settled the frontier.”

He also talk about his own mother, Mary MacLeod, who was born in Scotland and passed away back in 2000.
“I learned so much from my mother,” Trump said. “She was just incredible. warm, loving, really smart, could be tough if she had to be, but basically she was a really nice person.”
“So much of what I’ve done and so much of what I’ve become is because of my mother,” he added. “I miss her a lot.”
However, Americans are finding it hard to accept of Trump’s message of warmth, after he spent the week ruthlessly attacking his political opponents.
Here is what the people had to say:
You just ruined it.
