President Donald Trump turned 74 over the weekend, and birthday wishes from his family floated in along with the well-wishes of others as a parade of flotilla and caravans marked the special occasion.
Saturday saw celebrations start early and snake all the way from Michigan to Detroit, as well-wishers hopped on flotillas ahead of President Trump's birthday.
CELEBRATIONS STARTED EARLY
The parade of caravans and the flotilla of boats also marked the anniversary of Flag Day, and the head of the Republicans in Michigan, Rosanne Ponkowski, pointed out that it also served another purpose, as she reportedly told the Detroit News:
"We felt it was a great way to wish him Happy Birthday and a terrific way for Michiganders to celebrate the end of the lockdown.”
IVANKA PAID TRIBUTE TO HER DAD
Meanwhile, President Trump's children took to social media to publically celebrate their father's 74th birthday with throwback pictures and sweet tributes.
Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter, with his ex-wife Ivana Trump, shared a slideshow of images taken with her father during her childhood, as she wished her father a happy birthday. Later on, Ivanka also celebrated Flag Day in an update via her Instagram Stories, as she posted:
Jacksonville, Miami, and Pensacola also planned waterborne parades along with other cities scattered along the Intracoastal Waterway, and President Trump also addressed the Army's birthday while speaking with West Point graduates on Saturday.
President Trump's 74th birthday coincided with the 245th anniversary of the US Army's founding, and he couldn't help but ponder it's meaning, as he reportedly said:
"I don't know if that happened by accident. Did that happen by accident, please? But it´s a great day because of that Army birthday."
ERIC ALSO SENDS A BIRTHDAY TRIBUTE
Ivanka's brother, Eric, also made sure to send his father love on his birthday, and he posted two pictures taken with his father wherein they both smiled from ear to ear. Eric's wife, Lara, also wished him a happy birthday with two pictures taken with her father-in-law.
The picture Lara Trump shared of President Trump with their whole family, actually got taken earlier this year in celebration of National President's day.
Eric, Lara, and their little bundle of joy paid President Trump a special visit at the White House to show their appreciation, and they ended up taking a sweet snap together.
