‘Missing’ Melania Trump: Mystery, rumors grow after almost three weeks

  • Why the Eagles should visit Trump's White House

US First Lady Melania Trump, not seen in public since a hospital operation this month, has sought to scotch rumours about her health and marriage.

The Huffington Post pointed out that the phrases "working overtime", "speculating", "working hard" and "on behalf of the American people" feature frequently in the president's tweets.

She was most recently seen in public on 10 May at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, when she accompanied her husband as he greeted returning U.S. citizens who had been released from North Korea.

Trump, 48, has not been seen in public since May 10, four days before she underwent the procedure at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on May 14.

The off-tone tweet caused some Twitter users to worry about the first lady's welfare and demand answers to why she hasn't been seen in weeks.

Even her spokesperson Stephanie Grisham, known for posting updates and keeping tabs on the whereabouts of the First Lady has been scarce of realtime Melania news.

Rumors have been swirling in recent days that Melania Trump had left the White House and headed back to NY, with some even suggesting that President Donald Trump might know something about his wife's whereabouts that the public doesn't.

Melania's communications director says she is doing "really well" and is engaged on internal meetings.

The US will see whether the outcome of the summit is well-received before agreeing to declare an end to the Korean War. Kim Yong Chol is the highest-level representative from North Korea to set foot in the United States since 2000.

A week after the first lady announced "Be Best", she was in the hospital.

No word on when she will attend her next public event.

First ladies are under no obligation to make their medical histories public, and the White House has said nothing more about Mrs. Trump's condition.

During her public absence, a handful of social media postings have appeared on her accounts.

Yet 16 days later, the most anyone has heard from Trump has come via Twitter, with just one addressing her medical procedure.

On Friday, the president told White House reporters of his wife, "She's doing great". On Tuesday, yet another rumor on Melania Trump's supposed disappearance had popped up, as an unnamed senior White House official told Politico that the president's people "are hiding something" regarding the first lady's whereabouts.

Spokesperson Stephanie Grisham binned those rumours wholesale, telling Politico "we deal with conspiracy theories all the time", and reiterating that "she was hospitalized for nearly a week and is now home and recovering".
