At a White House function for Gold Star Families (military families who have lost relatives in combat), President Trump was accompanied by a person that everyone in attendance swears was really Melania, truthfully it was, no word of a lie, conversation over.
"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.
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.
Her decision not to go to Quebec is a departure from previous year, when she made an global summit debut at the G7 meeting in Italy and followed up at the forum of G20 industrialized and developing nations in Germany.
Melania Trump attended the G7 meeting in Italy past year.
John Binder is a reporter for Breitbart News. According to the White House, the first lady returned home on May 19th.
Nancy Reagan spent several weeks out of public view after a mastectomy, but continued to meet with staff and do other work behind the scenes. Melania Trump attended spousal events with Akie Abe, the wife of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who has twice visited the Trumps at Mar-a-Lago in Florida, and Brigitte Macron, the first lady of France, who would become a guest of honor at the Trumps' first state dinner.
The first lady skipped ceremonies, including a Memorial Day wreath-laying.
Grisham said the Gold Star families' event is important to Mrs. Trump and has been on her calendar for some time.
"I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing", Melania tweeted on Wednesday.
"I'm amazed Mrs Trump has been able to do it", she told AFP. Though it's her first appearance in weeks, the press was not asked to attend out of respect for the families' privacy. Everyone I know can't stop talking about where the first lady is.
Even White House reporters are asserting very strongly that Melania was definitely there, this isn't a stitch-up at all, and Secret Service officials definitely aren't typing these tweets out themselves on the phones they confiscated at the door.
