"My mother was a terrific woman, and Melania has been a great mother to Barron," Trump said, referring to his youngest son. "Barron is growing up really beautifully, and she's been a great mother to Barron."

When asked if Trump thought his mother would be surprised to find out he is president of the U.S., he said that he thought she would be. His mother died in 2000 at the age of 88.

"I think any mother would be," he said, adding, "My mother was somebody that gave me a lot of confidence, and she believed in me. ... My father was the same. I mean, 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."

"I miss my parents," Trump said, adding that having good parents is an advantage in life and that he had great opportunities due to his upbringing.
