Melania Trump to skip G7, North Korea summits

  • Melania Trump's office denied a report the first lady has been out of the public eye because she is caring for her ailing mother Amalija Knavs

On Friday, President Trump boarded Marine One with the rest of his family - children Ivanka and Tiffany, Donald Jr., and son-in-law Jared Kushner - traveling to Camp David, a quiet presidential retreat in Maryland's Catoctin Mountain Park first established by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and enjoyed by first families ever since.

As has been the case throughout Melania Trump's 23-day disappearance, Grisham gave no reasons for the first lady's absence from the two important foreign trips.

The White House announced four days later that Melania Trump had been hospitalised to treat a kidney condition.

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

Her absence from public events she would normally attend has sparked speculation in the United States media and on Twitter. Since then, she has stayed out of the public eye, a move that prompted much buzz on social media and even a hashtag #whereisMelania.

Super 8: LeBron James muscles his way back to the Finals
James was his usual Game 7 self, dropping 35 points, 15 rebounds, nine assists and two blocks in a complete game performance. It matched Game 7 of the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals: the Miami Heat and LeBron James vs. the Boston Celtics .

Grisham told ABC News last Wednesday that the first lady was "doing really well". Trump's youngest son, Barron, 12, also was not seen boarding the helicopter.

The absence of the intensely private first lady has prompted widespread speculation and conspiracy theories. The 24-year-old's last appearance came on Easter weekend, when she attended church services in Florida with her dad and was seen at the Easter Egg Roll at the White House on Monday.

The spokesperson for Mrs. Trump, Stephanie Grisham, confirmed her appearance to CNN Sunday evening.

She also made a solo trip to Canada in September of past year to to lead the US delegation to the Invictus Games, where she met with Prince Harry.

When recently asked about his wife's recovery, Trump said: "She's doing great".
