Melania Trump Returns to the Spotlight After 24-Day Absence
Nearly a month following her last public appearance on May 10, First Lady Melania Trump has reemerged from The White House/her secret apartment in N.Y.C.
The rumor mill has been working overtime in Melania’s absence, speculating that she’s moved out of the White House completely, or that her rumored body double is out of town.
Trump even weighed in on the public interest surrounding her mysterious public hiatus, addressing the rumors using her husband’s communication tool of choice: Twitter, writing: “I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing. Rest assured, I'm here at the @WhiteHouse w my family, feeling great, & working hard on behalf of children & the American people!”
On Monday, June 4, the spell was finally broken when Melania attended a White House Memorial Day reception honoring Gold Star families (those who’ve lost a loved one who served in the military).
The event was closed to media, so no official photos have been released yet. 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.
From the clip, it seems that Trump made her anticipated return in wearing a simple sleeveless shift dress.
After sharing the video, Greene who is part of a Gold Star family, relayed some of the President's comments regarding Melania and her health. "Melania had a little problem a couple weeks ago, but she wouldn’t miss this for anything.”
He then addressed divorce rumors. According to Greene, he said it wasn't happening, adding "Isn't that right, honey?"
The count is officially on to see when Mrs. Trump will step out next.
