She has not been seen publicly since her return to the White House, so the press has begun noticing her absence, especially as she chose not to accompany President Trump and some of his family for a weekend at Camp David.

Last week Mrs Trump sought to quell speculation about her health. POTUS reportedly said, while pointing to his wife, who was seated in the front row. "It's her style and we just have to accept that". "She just looked so lovely".

"Our office has received thousands of calls and emails wishing Mrs. Trump well, and we thank everyone who has taken the time to reach out", Grisham added.

She underwent a surgical procedure on May 14 to treat a benign kidney condition and was released from the hospital on May 19.

The first lady has not been seen in public for more than 20 days, and all sorts of unusual events and conspiracy theories have sprung up in the wake of her "vanishing". She spent almost a week in the hospital recovering.

Her recent schedule has seen a noticeable shift from the weeks prior to the surgery when she engaged in several high-profile events.

Public interest in and news media coverage of first ladies exploded during the Obama administration, the first White House to extensively use social media to spread its brand, McBride said.

Apple Introduces New Controls for Limiting Time Spent on Devices
The new macOS , along with iOS 12, will roll out this fall, and a beta edition for developers is coming this week as part of WWDC. That brings Apple more on par with other smart assistants from Google and Amazon, which already work with third-party speakers.

The president literally pointed at a window, indicating the presence of the first lady, but ... she wasn't there.

Hagin reportedly often cites an incident when Trump's transition team was in negotiations with Boeing about building a new Air Force One fleet, with the understanding that the talks would be kept quiet.

Meanwhile, Melania's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, spoke with People magazine and it sounds like the First Lady is doing the kind of work that would be possible from her home as she recovers.

The event, a private East Room reception for more than 40 Gold Star military families, was not in and of itself an unusual activity for the first lady of the United States.

Her extended absence from the public spotlight fueled voracious inquiries about her well-being, even prompting rumors and conspiracy theories in some circles.

She sent early signals that she will not bow to speculation or public expectations about what she should be doing. "Did she leave him?" She remained hospitalized for nearly a week before returning to the White House.
