Melania Trump attends first public event since kidney operation

Melania Trump attends first public event since kidney operation

The First Lady's spokeswoman issued a statement last week saying "she was hospitalized for nearly a week and is now home and recovering".

The First Lady of the United States, 48, accompanied her husband President Donald Trump, 71, to a White House function for Gold Star Families (military families who have lost relatives in combat). The White House announced four days later she was at Walter Reed Medical Center after undergoing a "successful" kidney procedure for a "benign" condition.

Political strategist Stephanie Cutter, who was an adviser to former first lady Michelle Obama and served as her campaign chief of staff, interprets the intense interest in Trump as concern by Americans for a popular and well-liked first lady. Although the first lady is returning to public life, Grisham confirmed she will not be attending the G7 Summit or Singapore meeting.

Last week Ms Trump sought to quell speculation about her health.

During the White House event for Gold Star families, President Trump alluded to the speculation, according to reporters in the room.

Mrs Trump made her worldwide debut as first lady at last year's G7 summit in Italy, and went on to attend the G20 in Germany.

Melania Trump criticized the media last week for speculating on her whereabouts.

At that meeting, they declared they would work toward a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula and a formal end to the 1950-53 Korean War. North Korea also demanded the United States stop military exercises with South Korea, the North's Rodong Sinmun newspaper said.

The first lady's absence is providing fodder to Trump critics and online conspiracy theorists.

Melania Trump has not made a public appearance since a five-day hospital stay in mid-May following surgery for a kidney condition.

Before the reception, amid ongoing memes and questions about her boss, Ms Grisham said the "nonsense" was fuelled by the media. Comedian John Oliver joked that an oversized letter the president received from North Korea was actually from Melania.

A tweet from the First Lady's official Twitter account appears to put the claims to bed, though. She and son Barron officially moved to the White House last June. She finally made a brief public appearance on Monday night, but Twitter is still, well, sort of skeptical.

Some said Melania had moved back to NY or was cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller, head of the main investigation into alleged Russian election meddling that President Trump has branded a "witch hunt".
