Melania Trump will not attend G7 or Singapore summits

However, Jena Greene, a reporter for the Daily Caller was invited, and she tweeted out a video of the President and the First Lady arriving at the private event.

Melania donned a black dress while walking into the East Room with President Trump. There were no official or reliable leaked reports about her status following her surgery for what was described as a benign kidney condition.

However, Grisham confirmed to CNN that Melania would attend the reception for Gold Star families, honoring their family members who died in battle.

The last time Melania Trump participated in an official event was on 10 May, when the first couple greeted three former USA prisoners who had been released from captivity in North Korea.

"They say she is perfectly fine and I certainly hope that's true", he said.

In recent days, Mrs. Trump has taken internal meetings and is planning events, her spokeswoman said, but her office has not shared updates on when the first lady might resume her public appearances. She was hospitalized for five days following the procedure. "Trump even welcomed her back in a tweet in which he accidentally called her 'Melanie.' Awkward".

She has stayed out of public view since returning home on May 19.

Grisham has further rebuffed speculation about the first lady's absence from the public stage, saying in a statement this week that the first lady is unaffected by the speculation about her whereabouts and condition.

The White House had said gave no official reason for Melania Trump not going on this trip.

Three weeks ago, a reporter at the White House briefing asked if the First Lady was actually living at the White House.

According to CNN, President Trump joked about his wife's prolonged absence during the Gold Star reception.

"These families have endured the ultimate in pain and sacrifice on behalf of our country, and I am honored to have spent the evening with them", she added. "For all we know, maybe she does understand what the expectations are but just chooses not to play that game".

As Monday's event has made clear, however, rumours of the first lady's death have been greatly exaggerated.

Probing why Mrs Trump would be a no-show for the marquee meetings, NBC claimed it could be as simple as wanting to avoid post-surgery blood clotting on flights.
