Today is First Lady Melania Trump's 48th birthday, but husband Donald Trump says he's been very busy and hasn't had a chance to buy Melania a birthday gift. This morning Donald Trump called into Fox & Friends to chat with the hosts and gave a shout-out to the first lady on her birthday, says People Magazine.

Donald Trump said that he chose today to call Fox because it is Melania's birthday.

"I picked a very, very special day because it's Melania's birthday. So I said, 'Let's do it on Melania's birthday.' So happy birthday to Melania."
"Well, I better not get into that because I may get in trouble. Maybe I didn't get her so much."
"I tell you what, she has done — I got her a beautiful card. You know, I'm very busy to be running out looking for presents, okay! But I got her a beautiful card and some beautiful flowers and she did a fantastic job with France."

While Melania Trump might not have been upset at Donald Trump for being too busy to buy her a birthday gift, people on Twitter did not give Trump a break and chastised him for not making his wife a priority.

"I keep wondering, other than #45, if any past president would have been too busy to get their wife a birthday present? And admit this on his favorite morning tv show? Happy birthday @FLOTUS. You deserve a day of sunshine and celebration."
"I think the most overlooked aspect of Trump's train wreck of a Fox & Friends interview, is the fact he made it clear he didn't get anything for Melania for her birthday today. I think that tells you everything you need to know about him."

"I think that he may have said it tongue-in-cheek and he knows he's in a little bit of hot water."
"He certainly is a little busy. At least he remembered. My guess is that he will make it up to her, but the number one thing is remembering, a heartfelt card with a handwritten note is more than acceptable."
