Melania Trump has shared two heartfelt messages of 'love and strength' in celebration of Valentine's Day, however, her husband of 15 years, former US President Donald Trump, doesn't get a mention in either.

The ex-FLOTUS took to Twitter to observe the romantic day by reflecting on her past visits with the seriously ill children at The Children's Inn, a residential home for young patients undergoing treatment and their families.

"On this #ValentinesDay, I think of the brave & inspirational children at @TheChildrensInn @NIH where I visited the past few years," the mum-of-one wrote.

"Sending them love & strength, today & everyday. #HappyValentinesDay," she added.

In an earlier tweet, Melania retweeted a video of her meeting 'incredible children' all around the world through her '#BeBest' project.

While the former model, 50, appeared to have a lot of love for youngsters on Valentine's Day, Twitter users were quick to point out that there wasn't much for 74-year-old Donald.

"One could read into this tweet that you ONLY wish the best for CHILDREN and absolutely NOT your HUSBAND," one wrote.

"We know you're not thinking of the big fat orange blob, that's for sure," said another.

"Huh. That's nice, but most spouses also think of their---[checks notes]---spouse," quipped a third.

One user compared Melania's Valentine's Day messages to those shared by President-Elect Joe Biden and his wife, Dr Jill Biden.

"Hey, did lil Donnie give you a card or flowers? Or is he hanging out on the golf course? You should check out how the Biden’s express their love! It’s very sweet and caring," the wrote.

Whitehouse love

Speaking of Joe and Jill, romance was clearly in the air when it came to the new POTUS and FLOTUS.

Jill tweeted a list of inspirational words such as "healing" and "courage" along with a few photos of her erecting love heart signs on the Whitehouse front lawn.

She also made sure to stop by a Washington, D.C. cake shop to pick up some sweet treats for Joe.

Joe also sent some love his wife's way, writing, "The love of my life and the life of my love. Happy Valentine’s Day, Jilly."

Douglas Emhoff, Vice President Kamala Harris's husband, had some heartfelt words for his wife, too.

"Happy Valentine’s Day, honey. We’ve got big adventures ahead. I couldn’t be more excited to be your partner on this journey," the 'second gentleman' tweeted.

Former President Barak Obama marked the special day by celebrating his wife, Michelle Obama and their two daughters, Sasha and Malia by posting a new family photo on Instagram.

"Happy Valentine’s Day to the three who never fail to make me smile. Your dazzling light makes everything brighter," he wrote.
