"When asked during a telephone interview on Fox & Friends what Trump bought the first lady for her birthday he responded with a laugh, 'Well, I better not get into that because I may get in trouble. Maybe I didn't get her so much,'" he said.

President Trump said he bought Melania "a beautiful card and some beautiful flowers." However, he admitted he didn't get her anything else.

Trump offered an explanation for his lack of birthday preparation.

"You know, I'm very busy to be running out looking for presents, OK?" Trump said.

Critics went crazy on social media. Most critics said there was no excuse for not getting the First Lady a special gift on her special day.
