According to the White House, the first lady returned home on May 19th. ABC News reported that Mrs. Trump will not attend the two summits. The event, however, will be "closed press", meaning that the media will not be allowed inside, allowing Melania to mostly remain out of the spotlight. The White House said that Melania Trump had surgery for a "benign kidney condition" on May 14.

Her absence has sparked all kinds of wild speculation but the first lady has displayed no interest in making an appearance just to knock down rumors.

"Rest assured, I'm here at the @WhiteHouse w my family, feeling great, & working hard on behalf of children & the American people!". On Monday, however, the first lady will appear alongside her husband, President Trump, at an event honoring Gold Star families.

Melania spent almost a week in hospital in May for what her office called a benign kidney problem but has not been seen publicly since May 10 and stayed home while the president travelled to Camp David over the weekend. "It's her style and we just have to accept that". Who knows. But if she does, I hope the cameras are there, watching. The whole thing is just unusual and discomfitting.
