Donald Trump is undoubtedly one of the most divisive people in the world, with his controversial quotes never failing to make us face-palm on the regular.
There was the time he said he should get a Nobel Prize, his tribute to Aretha Franklin when he claimed she ‘worked for him’ and of course his statement that the queen had the most fun in years during his UK tour.
This week however it was his parenting that made people cringe as the President of the United States appeared to snub his daughter Tiffany on her birthday.
Yes, while Trump tweeted a lot on Sunday - even wishing the U.S. navy a happy birthday, he failed to mention his youngest daughter Tiffany, who turned 26-years-old.
And while the president didn’t acknowledge his wife Melania’s birthday either, the silence was made all the more obvious given the other family members’ tributes to Tiffany.
‘Happy, happy birthday Tiffany!’ Posted sister Ivanka Trump alongside a throwback photo of the two of them. ‘You have grown into an amazing woman, despite my many babysitting fails!’
While the ‘snub’ could just be a coincidence, Donald is reported to have a strained relationship with his youngest daughter, with Tiffany being his only child not to play a key role in his election campaign.
‘Since the inauguration, Tiffany and her father have sometimes gone for months without speaking, and she went a very long time without seeing him,’ a source told People. ‘The last time she was at a family function with him, it was awkward for her and she didn't feel totally welcome.’
The Trumps have not yet responded.
