President Donald Trump turns 71-years-old Wednesday, and though it's not clear how he intends to celebrate, others were well underway to honor the United States' oldest president.

At 70, Trump eclipsed Ronald Reagan as the oldest president on Inauguration Day; Reagan was 77 when he left office.

First lady Melania Trump asked supporters last week for "help to make it a birthday my husband will never forget."

Melania and the first couple's son Barron are now living at the White House, but their plans for the president are unclear.

The GOP has an online birthday card that anyone can sign before 9 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

An obscure right-wing group in India ate birthday cake in Trump's honor, even feeding some to a large poster of the 45th president, The Telegraph reported.

Protesters also will be out "celebrating" with plans for a "national day of anti-Trump events" put on by a group called Rise and Resist, Newsweek reported.

The group's birthday gift to Trump — plane tickets "back to Russia," Newsweek reported.

"While he is in D.C. blowing out the candles on his cake, we'll be out in the streets saying we hope none of his wishes come true," Andy Ratto, a member of Rise and Resist, told Newsweek.
