With Mother's Day just around the corner, it's typical for the First Lady to hold an event at the White House. After #Melania Trump did just that, #Donald Trump acknowledged the gathering with a tweet, but didn't get the best response [VIDEO] from social media users.

Mother's Day backlash

During the 2016 presidential election [VIDEO], many questions were raised in regards to the relationship between Donald Trump and his wife Melania Trump. Unlike other spouses of presidential candidates in the past, Melania was usually quiet on the campaign trail, mostly keeping quiet with the exception of a handful of carefully-selected interviews.

At the Republican National Convention last summer, Melania initially received praise for her speech until it was revealed that much of what was written was lifted from the convention speech given by former First Lady Michelle Obama back in 2008. Since then, Melania has remained out of the spotlight, living in New York City instead of the White House, citing 10-year-old son Barron Trump's education for not relocating to Washington, D.C. after the election. Another blunder at the hands of the first lady came just last month after she failed to coordinate the annual White House Easter Egg Roll in time, which was forced to be reshuffled and downsized as a result. As seen on Twitter on May 12, Trump praised his wife for her Mother's Day event, which quickly received criticism and trolling.

Taking to Twitter once again on Friday, Donald Trump decided to be positive and credit Melania Trump.

"Today, @FLOTUS hosted a Military Mother's Day Event in the East Room of the WH," Trump tweeted, before adding, "It was an honor to stop by, say hello, & introduce Melania!"

Twitter reacts

Responding to Donald Trump's tweet, social media users were quick in mocking both the president and Melania Trump. "Then leave immediately after because she has a restraining order against you," writer Jules Suzdaltsev tweeted out.

"You let @flotus out of her cage? Cool!" Ben Berkon mockingly wrote on his Twitter account. "Free Melania! Free the 'tapes!'" tech journalist Mike Elgan added. "When will you and her actually live together and save tax payers money? Does she not like you like most of America?" another tweet went on to read.

"Melania blink twice if you need help," another Twitter user wrote, which was followed up by a reply reading, "It might be easier to see if you ask her to open her eyes all the way and smile Big if she needs help." The negative reactions continued, as it was made clear that many Americans are still not a fan of the First Family. #Mother Day
