  • After 24 days out of sight, Melania Trump finally reappears

Well, the suspense is over, because on Monday night, Melania Trump was in attendance at a Gold Star Families reception.

Melania spent almost a week in hospital in May for what her office called a benign kidney problem but has not been seen publicly since May 10 and stayed home while the president travelled to Camp David over the weekend.

Saying the media was asking, "Where's Melania?", Mr Trump riffed for about a minute or so about the speculation, which has included theories the First Lady had decamped with son Barron, 12, to NY or was recovering from plastic surgery.

Her last appearance in an official capacity was on May 10, welcoming back three Americans imprisoned by North Korea.

"Mrs Trump has always been a strong and independent woman who puts her family, and certainly her health above all else, and that won't change over a rabid press corps", Ms Grisham said.

In a statement after last year's event, Melania called Gold Star families a "unique and distinct category" of people who should be "cherished".

Wild theories began to circulate online, including that Mrs Trump had moved back to NY with their son, Barron, or that she was co-operating with special counsel Robert Mueller. "The first lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere".

Bette Midler also shared her condolences via Twitter . "She was all set to go - but then chickened out by morning", she recalled. Coach, now known as Tapestry, bought the Kate Spade brand previous year for $2.4 billion, seeking to broaden its appeal.

White House silence, including about why Melania spent five days in hospital for a routine procedure, only fueled the speculation. Others had to keep an eye on social media. She has not been seen in public since May 10th.

CNN has also reported that the first lady was in the room. The reception is not open to the press, the White House added.

Last weekend she stayed behind in Washington as Mr Trump and many of his immediate family went to Camp David.

"She's looking at us, right there", he said, gesturing toward the residence. "For all we know, maybe she does understand what the expectations are but just chooses not to play that game".

She sent early signals that she will not bow to speculation or public expectations about what she should be doing.

Some have speculated she has moved back to NY or is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller, while others offer she may be healing after some secret plastic surgery.

Even White House reporters are asserting very strongly that Melania was definitely there, this isn't a stitch-up at all, and Secret Service officials definitely aren't typing these tweets out themselves on the phones they confiscated at the door.
