President Donald Trump said Thursday he was too busy to buy his wife Melania Trump a 48th birthday gift, a day after he enjoyed an extended Twitter lovefest with rapper Kanye West.

In a telephone interview with “Fox & Friends,” Trump claimed he’d decided to call in to the show because it was his wife’s birthday. “I picked a very, very special day because it’s Melania’s birthday so I said, let’s do it on Melania’s birthday,” he said. “So happy birthday to Melania.”

When asked what gift he had bought for his wife, the president replied:

Well, I better not get into that ’cause I may get in trouble. Maybe I didn’t get her so much. I tell you what she has done, I got her a beautiful card. You know I’m very busy to be running out looking for presents, OK? But I got her a beautiful card and some beautiful flowers.

Unsurprisingly, Trump’s comments did not go unnoticed on Twitter, where users responded in various ways.
