Donald Trump's mother asked: 'What kind of son have I created?'

Donald Trump’s mother once reportedly asked his first wife “what sort of son have I created”.

Mary Trump, the Scottish-born mother of the US President who died in 2000, is reported to have been acutely embarrassed by the antics of her fourth child during the 1990s when his failing marriage and business were the subject of intense tabloid scrutiny.

Ms Trump despaired of her son’s antics during the late 1980s when the ups and downs of his divorce from his first wife, Ivana Trump, meant her family were thrown into the spotlight when she was in her eighties.

She became a minor source of attention during this time and was frequently photographed by the paparazzi. She was horrified at the role her son played in it, according to a 1990 article by Vanity Fair.

Mr Trump is known for his frequent references to his father and the role he played in his life but is more reluctant to talk about his mother.

Despite describing her as "fantastic" and “a homemaker" who "loved it" with a "great sense of pageantry", it is his father's picture which sits in the Oval Office – not hers.

Friends of the family have commented that Ms Trump always seem more distant from her family than her husband.

A childhood friend of Mr Trump recounted how Fred Trump "would be around and watch him play" but "his mom didn’t interact in that way".

A friend of Mr Trump’s older brother Fred Jr agreed that they "rarely" saw his mother but "did see a lot of the housekeeper".

Psychologists who are analysing the President behaviour have wondered whether his thin skin, need for praise and poor treatment of women – particularly those who stand up to him – stems from his relationship with his mother.

It's a good thing the lame stream media doesn't print what my parents said about me, because of course they would fail to post any counter facts if it didn't fit their narrative!

Observing someone from a distance without knowing them could draw many conclusions, could be learned behavior from how his dad responded, could be that he wasn't corrected for how he behaved as a child?

The fact that his dad sent him to military school could be that his mom let him be a brat at home and her response in the article is covering the fact that she wasn't a good mom and is not willing to take responsibility for her children not growing up the way she thought they should.

He could have been many things but one thing for sure is that the many thousands of people who have benefited from who he became far out ways the few that didn't. Not to mention the many thousand that will benefit for decades to come from the children he has raised and the people he has trained that are now in business employing others and on and on.
