Melania's spokeswoman confirmed she will not travel to either Quebec for the G7 or Singapore later this month for the meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

Sophie Gregoire Trudeau welcomes United States first lady Melania Trump prior to the opening ceremonies of the Invictus Games in Toronto on Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017. On May 14th, the first lady's office announced that she had undergone a "benign" kidney procedure, which was successful, and would remain hospitalized for a week. The event is closed to the press.

The event was the first time Melania has been seen in public for 25 days, and comes following speculation about her absence.

"I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing".

After that reception, Mrs Trump put out a tweet that said she and Trump "were honoured to pay tribute to our fallen heroes".

Luckily for everyone, FLOTUS posted photos from the Gold Star event, where you can absolutely see her face if you squint quite a bit. "We're used to our first ladies being out and about".

The president literally pointed at a window, indicating the presence of the first lady, but ... she wasn't there. After the process, which Mrs. Trump's Communications Director Stephanie Grisham stated was a hit and with out complication, the primary girl then spent the higher a part of per week recovering within the hospital earlier than returning residence to the White Home.

Within the weeks since, Grisham has stated the primary girl has been in feeling nice and has been engaged in conferences concerning her coverage initiatives and planning for the upcoming Fourth of July celebration on the White Home.

It's not clear she would have gone anyway, but a year ago she traveled with the president overseas for various global meetings and tours, including the G7 Summit in Italy, where Trump wowed the locals in a $51,000 Dolce & Gabbana coat.

Jamil Smith, a senior writer for Rolling Stone magazine, led the charge over the weekend, saying he "suspects" the First Lady's absence could be the result of "concealing abuse". "She might hear it from down the hall".

Melania did not speak at the event and only provided comments in the form of a pre-prepared statement issued to media, which is further evidence of how extremely real and active in White House activities she is. "For all we know, maybe she does understand what the expectations are but just chooses not to play that game".
