Mrs Trump has variously been recovering from plastic surgery, moving out of the White House and back to NY or simply giving her husband the cold shoulder if you were to believe any of the conspiracytheories conjured from thin air to explain her absence from the public eye. And she's doing great, ' Trump said.
'She wanted to go, ' Trump said.
'Can't fly for one month, the doctors say, ' revealing a few details about his wife's condition as he prepared to head off to Canada for a summit meeting and then Singapore. That was a close to a four-hour operation. That was a, close to a four-hour operation.
"She is a great first lady", Trump added.
The first lady attended a FEMA briefing, with United States presidentDonald Trump, her first appearance in front of camera in nearly a month. Over the course of the first lady's recovery, the White House released little information about the status of her health or where she was beyond telling reporters she was "doing well".
"The statement I put out on May 14 was correct", Grisham said Friday in an email.
"The procedure was successful and there were no complications", the statement read. "She can not travel internationally yet, and is doing great".
The President's revelation of the length and severity of what he described as Melania Trump's "operation", paints the embolization procedure as considerably more complex and serious than initially described. Embolization, which involves cutting blood flow to an area like an abnormal growth, is typically a minor enough procedure that general anesthesia is not required.
The first lady checked in to the Walter Reed Medical Center on May 14 and remained hospitalized for five days.
"The issue about flying, that is completely and utterly arbitrary", he said. The last time Mrs. Trump was seen in public was May 10, when she joined the president at Joint Base Andrews to welcome home three American hostages freed from North Korea.
He said: "First lady's great".
The first lady's absence from public view began soon after she unveiled her initiative to teach kindness to children, sparking all sorts of theories about where she was, including that she had packed her bags and moved back to the family's Trump Tower penthouse in NY.
"I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing", the first lady tweeted last week.
Melania didn't attend an event with the first lady of Japan on Thursday. "Fake News is really bad!"
The first lady ended some of the speculation this week when she made her first appearances in almost a month.
