Melania Trump not attending G7 summit in Charlevoix later this week

On Monday, members of several of the Gold Star families who were invited into what the White House said was a closed reception were excited to hear from President Trump and lay eyes on Melania Trump.

In pictures posted on her official Twitter account, she was seen sitting next to President Donald Trump at a private reception for families of USA soldiers killed in action.

As well as not being spotted out and about, she declined to attend a family weekend at Camp David last weekend, while her spokesperson also confirmed she will not be joining her husband on two upcoming foreign trips, ABC News reported.

"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", Grisham said.

"I wish that I didn't suspect that the prolonged, poorly explained public absence of Melania Trump could be about concealing abuse", Smith tweeted.

"She's doing great. She's looking at us right there", the president told reporters, gesturing toward a window in the White House residence.

Mrs. Trump stayed in the hospital for five days and has kept out of public view since returning home May 19. Greene's father was killed in action in Iraq in 2004, which means she is from a Gold Star family and would have been invited to the reception.

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.

After meeting a senior official from Pyongyang at the White House on Friday, Trump said North Korea was being more cooperative and that although sanctions would remain in place, he would hold off on imposing new ones. "The first lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere". "To all those who have lost loved ones in service to our country, our nation grieves with you", the first lady said in a statement after the event.

She sent early signals that she will not bow to speculation or public expectations about what she should be doing. The first lady said in a written statement after last June's event that these families "are a unique and distinct category of individuals who should be cherished".

Stephanie Grisham, the first lady's communications director, told the Times on Monday that it was "pretty typical" for people to avoid travel after undergoing medical procedures.

Her first clue that she would be a different first lady came when she made a decision to continue living at Trump Tower after her husband took office in January 2017, citing a desire to maintain stability for her son's schooling.
