Where's Melania? First Lady has not been seen in public for 24 days


At a White House function for Gold Star Families (military families who have lost relatives in combat), President Trump was accompanied by a person that everyone in attendance swears was really Melania, truthfully it was, no word of a lie, conversation over.

The footage showed Mr Trump, 71, escorting his wife, 48, to the front row then taking to the podium to address the crowd, which included more than 40 Gold Star families of American military personnel killed in action.

According to The New York Times, the White House cancelled an event to mark the Eagles' Super Bowl victory after finding out that fewer than 10 players were expected to attend. It's the same treatment a similar event the Trumps hosted previous year got. These are Gold Star families.

"She holds a certain position in this country, and while we need to respect her privacy on personal issues, there needs to be some level of transparency", Cutter said.

Donald Trump cracked an awkward joke about Melania divorcing him. Some of the more popular conspiracy theories suggest a longer-term recovery from plastic surgery or a condition that is not so benign; that she's left Trump and moved out of the White House entirely. Some wondered whether Melania was holed up with the Obamas while others suggested she had packed her bags and returned to NY because she was fed up with life at the White House.

"She has had several meetings internally with staff and will continue to do so this week".

She also defended the president's decision to impose tariffs on Canada, Mexico and the European Union, saying our steel and aluminum industries are critical to our national security and need to be protected. She had not been seen publicly since undergoing a medical procedure in mid-May. As of June 3, a number of journalists have seen her at the White House.

In a tweet the first lady said: "I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing".

Jean Harris, a politics professor at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania, says skipping Singapore makes some sense because there is no clear social role for a spouse amid the tensions of that meeting.

The President also talked about the strong economy during the event, the person inside the room said.
