Melania Trump to attend White House reception for Gold Star families

Melania Trump to attend White House reception for Gold Star families

According to The Hill, Melania, along with her husband, President Donald Trump, will host a reception for Gold Star families on Monday.

A reporter for the USA website the Daily Caller also tweeted footage of Mrs Trump's arrival at the event for Gold Star families - parents of slain soldiers - hosted by the Trump administration.

In the clip, they can be seen walking to their seats during the Gold Star Families reception to honour World War Two veterans.

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.

But last night, the former model stepped into the limelight once again with an appearance at the White House.

Although the first lady is returning to public life, Grisham confirmed she will not be attending the G7 Summit or Singapore meeting.

Her recent schedule has seen a noticeable shift from the weeks prior to the surgery when she engaged in several high-profile events.

Concern has been growing for US President Donald Trump's wife as her absence from public appearances became very noticeable.

There haven't been any photos of Melania taken since May 10th, just before the 48-year-old suffered a kidney problem and underwent an embolism procedure.

Trump asserts 'absolute right to PARDON' himself in Russia probe
Donald Trump has tweeted that he has the "absolute right to pardon himself" for any wrongdoing - but insists he is untainted by scandal.

Melania Trump herself had addressed the conjecture, tweeting on May 30 that "the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing".

The statement offered no other details about Mrs. Trump's hospital stay or the procedure - although President Trump tweeted on May 14 that she was "in good spirits" and that the procedure was "successful".

Comedian Sarah Silverman retweeted the first lady's post, adding: "Who is this? where's Melania?"

Spokeswoman Grisham dismissed the media speculation about Melania as "nonsense".

Meanwhile, the rumour mill churns online. He said the media had speculated that the first lady may have left him, before pointing out that she was sitting in the front row.

"I'm amazed Mrs Trump has been able to do it", she told AFP.

Several 19th century first ladies spent long periods out of view. Some people have even been posting humorous flyers in NY seeking information on the "missing" first lady.

The White House had said gave no official reason for Melania Trump not going on this trip.

While the First Lady's condition was "benign", it was serious.
