Ahead of Mother’s Day, President Donald Trump commented on Friday that in his mother’s eyes he could do nothing wrong, The Associated Press reported.

Trump said in an interview with “Fox & Friends”:

"I had a great mom. I loved my mom and she loved me, which ... is probably not easy to do. She was so good to me. I couldn’t do any wrong, which is a big problem. Maybe that’s why I ended up the way I ended up. I don’t know. I couldn’t do any wrong in her eyes.”

“My mother was somebody that gave me a lot of confidence and she believed in me. ... My father was the same. I mean he, he was a strong guy but he was a good man, very good human being, very good person. And he always had confidence in me.”

Trump also praised his wife for being a good mother:

"My mother was a terrific woman and Melania has been a great mother to Barron. Barron is growing up, really beautifully and she’s been a great mother to Barron.”

When asked if his mother would be surprised that he would become president of the United States, he said, “I think any mother would be.”
