Melania Trump will not attend G7 or Singapore summits


Mrs. Trump was last seen publicly during the overnight hours of May 10 when she and the president welcomed home three Americans who had been detained in North Korea.

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 fact she has not been seen in public for more than 24 days has led to questions over whether there is something more going on than recovery from a routine procedure, with freakish rumors including that she has been living with the Obamas, that she is secretly back in NY, and that she is writing a tell-all book about her husband.

Trump had last been seen on May 10 standing alongside her husband at Joint Base Andrews as the couple greeted three Americans who had been released from prison in North Korea.

The rumors surrounding her absence ranged from suggestions she had plastic surgery to speculation that she moved out of the White House and back to NY.

During the White House event for Gold Star families, President Trump alluded to the speculation, according to reporters in the room.

Trump said he didn't want to use the term "maximum pressure" any more, because the two sides were "getting along". 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.

A spokeswoman for Melania Trump on Monday slammed a "rabid press corps" for the wanton speculation about her condition and whereabouts.

Melania Trump is scheduled to appear at her first official engagement since dropping out of sight 24 days ago.

The first lady has not been seen in public for more than 20 days, and all sorts of unusual events and conspiracy theories have sprung up in the wake of her "vanishing". "Melania Missing" posters are popping up on telephone poles in Manhattan. Twitter was abuzz with theories from political observers, both on the left and the right, with a public anxious to see their first lady.

"Mrs. Trump is very strong and independent", Grisham said.

Several 19th century first ladies spent long periods out of view.

"Without greater detail about her "benign" condition, the public imagination is running wild", Jellison said.

Melania and Grégoire Trudeau also participated in the meeting between their husbands at the White House last October.

"For most of the 20th century and certainly in the 21st century, a first lady hasn't had the option of not being a public figure - regardless of unfortunate personal circumstances".
