First Lady Will Not Join President on Trips to G7, NKorea Summit

US first lady not going to Canada Singapore spokeswoman

Trump's family members Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr., and Tiffany Trump were spotted boarding Marine One before President Trump himself boarded the helicopter. The White House said that Melania Trump had surgery for a "benign kidney condition" on May 14. It was a "successful procedure", President Donald Trump tweeted on her first day at the hospital.

As the first lady remained out of sight, rumors began circulating about her absence. "Most of us don't even know cursory information about her - I would bet most people don't even know her home country".

When reporters looked out the window to see her, nobody was there, according to the Mirror.

Despite her planned attendance at Monday's event, the first lady will not be traveling to the G7 summit this year or join the President when he goes to Singapore for the planned June 12 summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, her spokeswoman told CNN. The most recent, sent on 30 May, addressed the mounting interest in her absence - but the unusual style of the message inflamed rather than cooled the speculation.

Public interest in and news media coverage of first ladies exploded during the Obama administration, the first White House to extensively use social media to spread its brand, McBride said.

The White House did not allow journalists to cover the Gold Star event out of respect for the families, which meant Melania Trump was seen in person only by the 40 or so families and administration officials who attended.

Her absence from public events she would normally attend has sparked speculation in the U.S. media and on Twitter. "Uniquely and remarkably, I think the press's attitude towards the First Lady of the United States is that of victim".

The president said last week that his wife is "doing great".

Stephanie Grisham, the first lady's director of communications, told ABC News that she was "doing really well" and has been involved in several internal meetings with staff regarding initiatives and other long-term planning for events such as the congressional picnic and Fourth of July.
