  • MELANIA UPDATE: President Trump Says First Lady 'Doing Really Well'

Trump's visit was not on the official White House schedule, but he made time for his wife as she recovers from a minor surgery on her kidney.

Trump addressed concerned citizens on social media Tuesday morning, thanking people for their "love and support" after announcing earlier this week that the First Lady underwent an "embolization operation" to treat a "benign" condition.

He later reiterated to reporters on his way into Senate policy lunches with Republican members that Melania was doing "really well" and had a "really successful" procedure.

Oil markets firm amid OPEC cuts, Iran sanctions
The Saudis themselves reported total production of 9.868 million barrels a day in April, down by about 39,100 compared to March. The report is the last one before the oil ministers' meeting in Vienna to discuss the oil production ceiling two weeks later.

Mrs. Trump joined her husband last month to host the prime minister of Japan for a two-day summit at the Trumps' Florida estate, and the Trumps hosted the president of France at the White House on a three-day state visit, including a lavish state dinner. "Thank you to all of the well-wishers!" he wrote on Twitter. "The fact that she's in the hospital for [the remainder of the] week says to me there's a little more to the story", he said. "She's watching us right now", Trump said Tuesday as he spoke an annual tribute to law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. Trump also joked that his 48-year-old wife should be the one visiting him in the hospital and not the other way around, a senator said. Her spokeswoman had said in a statement Monday that the first lady was likely to remain hospitalised for "the duration of the week".

The White House has cited the first lady's privacy for not offering any additional details on her condition. Vice President Mike Pence, however, said in a speech Monday night that the procedure was "long-planned".

Two urologists who have no personal knowledge of Mrs. Trump's condition tell The Associated Press the most likely explanation for the procedure is a kind of noncancerous kidney tumor called an angiomyolipoma, which isn't common but tends to occur in middle-aged women.
