At the time, many joked that the tweet did not sound like it was written by the First Lady.

Questions surrounding Melania's absence grew increasingly loud in the last week, prompting the first lady to snipe at the press for inquiring about her.

Mrs. Trump joined the president at a reception Monday to honor families of those killed during military service. Such families have loved ones who were killed during military service. "It is a solemn reminder that we, the American people, are able to live as freely as we do because of the selfless sacrifices of our men and women in uniform".

"Suppose President Trump punched the First Lady in the White House (federal property = federal jurisdiction), then ordered the Secret Service to hide the assault". It's the same treatment a similar event the Trumps hosted a year ago got.

First lady Melania Trump will not be accompanying the president to the G7 summit in Canada this week or to his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore on June 12, her communications director confirmed Sunday.

Zeleny said Trump laughed at the speculation on the first lady, who was sitting in the front row at the event, saying "Did she leave him?"

In the weeks prior to her surgery, she was engaged in several high-profile events.

He spoke and wrote about needed to leave Russian Federation because of threats against him and his family. In both cases, Ukraine's government blamed Russian Federation for being involved.

Amid the scrutiny, and ahead of the Gold Star reception, Grisham told CNN there was nothing to the rumors, blaming the media for piquing public interest.

"She is going to do this job her way", McBride said of Mrs. Trump. "She's confident in what she is doing and in her role, and knows the rest is just speculation and nonsense".

However, the volume of concern, and the cacophony of the conspiracy chorus, wasn't exclusively from the media.

A spokesperson for Melania Trump told Yahoo's Hunter Walker that the first lady would also be skipping the event. Four days later, the White House announced that she had been hospitalized to treat a benign kidney condition.

It's still unclear when the first lady will make an appearance in public.

Mrs. Trump stayed in the hospital for five days and has kept out of public view since returning home May 19.
