“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 and I had a great father too, great guy, very different types but my mother was a terrific woman. Melania has been a great mother to Barron, whose growing up really beautifully and she’s been a great mother to Barron.”

Co-host Brian Kilmeade asked Trump if his mother would be surprised that he’s president.

“Well I think any mother be, right?” Trump said. “If you look statistically, 350 million people and one gets it, and so anybody would be no matter how well you do in life and your earlier life, but my mother was somebody that gave me a lot of confidence and she believed in me so she would say that she wouldn’t be but I think everybody be.”

“I think everybody would be. My father was the same. 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, so and in our family.”
