WASHINGTON (AP) — It's Melania Trump's birthday, and President Donald Trump thinks he might be in a little trouble.
When Trump was asked what he got his wife for her 48th birthday, the president acknowledged that "maybe I didn't get her so much."
Justifying that, he added, "you know, I'm very busy."
In a telephone interview Thursday with the hosts of "Fox & Friends," Trump did say that he'd gotten his wife a "beautiful card" and some flowers.
Mrs. Trump has been busy, too. She planned Tuesday's state dinner for the president of France. Last weekend, she attended the Houston funeral for former first lady Barbara Bush. She and the president also recently hosted the Japanese prime minister and his wife at the Trumps' Florida estate for a two-day visit.
