First lady to hang back on president's Camp David weekend

Share

First lady Melania Trump isn't accompanying the President to Camp David this weekend, marking the 23rd day since she was last seen publicly.

Trump's communications director Stephanie Grisham denied the rumors, telling CNN the first lady has been recuperating, but also taking meetings with her staff at the White House, discussing her initiatives as well as upcoming events like the Congressional Picnic and Fourth of July.

Melania's absence led to many people making widespread rumours and conspiracy theories. She was last spotted on May 10, when she joined her husband at Andrews Air Force Base to welcome home hostages from North Korea.

While there are plenty of theories about Melania's public disappearance, it is most plausible that she is in fact inside the White House right now taking it easy.

This all comes just after Mrs. Trump's most high-profile period as First Lady.

She addressed them on Wednesday, tweeting: "I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing".

Serious summit talks start in NY-INSIDE
The two countries do not have a diplomatic relationship and North Korea only has a mission in NY for its delegation to the UN. He was also in charge of the agency during the 2014 hacking attack against Sony.

The White House did not respond to TheWrap for comment. She participated in public appearances with the spouses of other G7 leaders, including a formal dinner and taking in a performance by La Scala Philharmonic Orchestra at the Ancient Theatre of Taormina. "The First Lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere".

The White House announced four days later that Mrs Trump had been treated in hospital for a kidney condition.

The first lady did attend the G7 summit in Sicily past year, making headlines on her debut global trip as first lady.

As recently as Friday, Grisham told CNN, "she is fine, she's doing great". But, this week the President attempted to reassure the media by telling them that his wife is doing great. "She was hospitalised for nearly a week and is now home and recovering".

The first lady has gone on other prominent global trips.
