President Trump celebrated his 74th birthday Sunday, receiving well wishes from his children, the Republican Party, the White House, members of his administration and Twitter users globally.
“Happy Birthday @realDonaldTrump! Love you!” tweeted Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and White House adviser.
“Happy birthday, President @realDonaldTrump! I am proud to serve under your strong leadership and wish you continued strength and fortitude as you continue to lead this great nation,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo added.
Errol Webber, who is a GOP congressional candidate in California, also reached out.
“America is better for having you as @POTUS, @realDonaldTrump! #HappyBirthdayTrump,” Webber, who has been endorsed by the president, wrote.
“#HappyBirthayTrump” was ranked number two on trending terms early Sunday afternoon, with nearly 100,000 tweets, according to Trend24, a tracking site.
“Happy Birthday Mr. President, Who but you could’ve handled Dem/media attack on USA? We’ve never been in more capable hands. Thank you for your service,” said Twitter user Philip Schuyler.
Fans also celebrated in person, New York Post said.
On Saturday, a flotilla of boats in Michigan sailed toward Detroit to celebrate ahead of the president’s birthday, picking up well-wishers along the way.
Rosanne Ponkowski, president of Michigan’s Trump Republicans, said the boats were marking the president’s birthday and Flag Day.
“There have been several flotillas supporting the President in Florida and this is an offshoot of those,” Ponkowski told the Detroit News. “Sunday is the President’s birthday and 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 we have been suffering through.”
Boaters in Florida also rode the waves to celebrate Trump’s 74th in a series of “Trumptillas,” the Tampa Bay Times reported.
Waterborne parades were planned in Miami, Pensacola, Jacksonville and other cities along the Intracoastal Waterway.
Jeff Flood of Bradenton said he’s glad to see so many people supporting Trump, whom he said keeps his word.
“Us old school guys, that means everything,” Flood, 59, told the newspaper.
The president, who’s spending much of the time at his golf resort in New Jersey, on Sunday also acknowledged Flag Day and the US Army turning 245.
“As we honor our beautiful flag on this day and throughout this week, let us vow never to forget the tremendous sacrifices made by patriots from generation to generation to ensure that the red, white, and blue continues to fly high and free,” Trump said in a proclamation released by the White House on Sunday.
He also retweed a posting from the Army that said: “Today, we recognize 245 years of bravery, commitment, skill and answering the call to serve. We are America’s Army. #ArmyBday #ServeWithHonor.”
