First Lady Melania Trump received happy birthday greetings from a number of well-wishers on Sunday, including her husband, President Trump.
“Happy Birthday to Melania, our great First Lady!,” the president wrote on Twitter.
Melania Trump, who turned 50 on Sunday, is expected to celebrate like most Americans during the coronavirus pandemic — at home.
Her chief of staff, Stephanie Grisham, said the first lady will spend her birthday with family at the White House, Fox Business reported.
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany also tweeted birthday greetings.
“Happy Birthday to @FLOTUS – America is so blessed to have you as our First Lady!” she said in a posting.
The Republican Party also weighed in.
“RT to wish our wonderful @FLOTUS a very happy birthday!,” the GOP said on Twitter, drawing nearly 6,000 retweets by Sunday afternoon.
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson and his wife shared their greeting on Twitter.
“Candy and I would like to wish our incredible First Lady a very happy birthday. @FLOTUS, Thank you for all you do for the American people,” Carson said.
The first lady was born on April 26, 1970, and moved to the US from Slovenia in 1996.
The former fashion model married Trump in 2005, and their son, Barron, was born the following year.
Melania Trump as first lady has promoted her BeBest campaign against online bullying.
As part of that effort, the first lady on Thursday sent care packages of blankets, backpacks, Dr. Seuss books and games to staff and kids at hospitals in 10 states — “just a small token of my appreciation for their courage and leadership in this time,” she said.
