Melania Trump appears at first White House event since kidney procedure

Her security guards didn't feel it was safe for her to go out.

U.S. President Donald Trump is still scheduled to attend, but Melania's absence is sure to fan the flames of social media speculation, since she has not been seen in public for almost a month.

The last time Melania Trump participated in an official event was on 10 May, when the first couple greeted three former U.S. prisoners who had been released from captivity in North Korea.

In a statement from her office after the event, Trump did not mention her time away from the White House's public schedule. Four days later, the White House announced that she had been hospitalized to treat a benign kidney condition.

Three weeks into the volcano's eruption, scientists said the summit is still too unsafe to survey on foot. It was among a series of explosions recorded by weather service radar, she said by phone.

However, Trump's absence from public view would extend for several more days.

And though she has publicly resurfaced, Trump is still avoiding the full glare of the media spotlight.

Grisham said the Gold Star families' event was important to Mrs. Trump and had been on her calendar for some time.

The North Koreans also seemed particularly upset by Bolton, who called on them to do what Libya did more than a decade ago. However, it remains to be seen if Trump and Moon can keep the goodwill going before the U.S.

However, her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, said the first lady is doing well and that a variety of internal meetings about her initiative have taken place during her recovery. The press is not invited, but no doubt we will receive some kind of confirmation from some source whether the first lady was there or not.

Trump joked about all the speculation that his wife had supposedly left him but said she was doing fine, Pike said. Melania Trump attended spousal events with Akie Abe, the wife of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who has twice visited the Trumps at Mar-a-Lago in Florida, and Brigitte Macron, the first lady of France, who would become a guest of honor at the Trumps' first state dinner. Though it's her first appearance in weeks, the press was not asked to attend out of respect for the families' privacy.

The tweet sparked a conspiracy theory that Mr Trump himself may have written Melania's message, given that "working overtime" is a favorite idiom of the president when he tweets about the press.

The President also talked about the strong economy during the event, the person inside the room said. Everyone I know can't stop talking about where the first lady is.

It's the second year the Trumps have opened the White House to Gold Star families.
