Ivanka Trump's Mother's Day Message to Her Mom Was A Little Cold

On Mother's Day, social media was alight with people posting warm tributes to the moms in their lives. President Donald Trump's daughter and White House assistant, Ivanka, sent a tweet to her own mother. Many people on social media felt that Ivanka's message to Ivana was sort of cold, though.

Ivana Trump, the president's first wife and mother of his eldest three children-- Don Jr., Eric and Ivanka --received got a shout out on Instagram from her daughter. Oddly, though, Ivanka didn't have much to say about her mother's actual mothering; instead she complimented her mom on her athletic ability.

“Happy Mother’s Day to my amazing mother and the best skier I know! Love you,” wrote Ivanka. She shared a photo of Ivana in her younger days on the slopes.

The internet, needless to say, was not impressed.

"“@itsivanatrump that was a weak Mother’s Day wish. Ivana, you deserve better than that," commented one person.

“How nice… but I’m sure she has some pretty amazing attributes as a mother than just being the best skier,” another person noted. “You are who you are because of her. She deserves more honor. Happy Mothers Day all!”

One person couldn't help but notice the picture of Ivana, and how the former Mrs. Trump looked a little dolled up for winter sports. "Oh how relatable,” they wrote. “Sking in a half updo, diamonds and sequins. The Trump’s, they’re just like us.”

Others took the opportunity to slam President Donald Trump. “Your dad should’ve been a better husband to her,” one person wrote, referring to the fact that the marriage ended after Donald Trump had an affair with Marla Maples, who later became his second wife.

Ivana, who celebrated her 69th birthday just a couple of months ago, released an autobiography about bringing up Trump's three children. 'Raising Trump' covers her own upbring in Czechoslovakia, and how life was like for the former fashion model raising her three kids.

On Ivana's last birthday, Ivanka came up with a much more impressive message. She posted a flashback photo on Instagram of herself bowing to her mother. Both mother and daughter were wearing formal white dresses, looking glamourous.

“Happy birthday Mom!” she wrote. “Today, I bow to you even deeper, as I better understand just how hard a job it is to be a great mom! You inspire now, as you did then. I love you.”

In July of 2016, Ivanka told People Magazine in an interview, "“She was the ultimate role model for me of a woman who works at her life and who works at balancing different priorities... And I think one of the things that was amazing about my mother is her role as a parent was complimentary to her role as an executive and vice versa, so I think she learned a lot of skills negotiating with us that she brought into the boardroom and vice versa.”

So clearly, the love for her mother is there. But somehow, perhaps with her busy life in the White House and raising her own three children, she couldn't come up with anything interesting to say. her message fell flat with the internet, but most likely, Ivana was happy to get the mention.
