The media has been speculating the first lady’s potential whereabouts since she hadn’t made a public appearance in more than 25 days until Monday.


“The Fake News Media has been so unfair, and vicious, to my wife and our great First Lady, Melania,” Trump wrote on Twitter, attacking the press for creating false theories for why his wife had not been seen in several days.

“During her recovery from surgery they reported everything from near death, to facelift, to left the W.H. (and me) for N.Y. or Virginia, to abuse. All Fake, she is doing really well!”

Melania underwent kidney surgery on May 14 and wasn’t seen in public again until Monday, when she and Trump attended a ceremony for Gold Star families. This event was not open to the media, although several people who were present took photos or videos of the president and first lady and uploaded them on social media.

On May 30, CNBC’s Eamon Javers tweeted that he had seen Melania “walking with her aides in the West Wing” just a day earlier.
