Donald Trump finally details why Melania hasn't been in spotlight

"The first lady is great". She's done a fantastic job as First Lady. People love you. The people of our country love you. Add Melania Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Melania Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News. "And she's doing great", Trump said about his wife, revealing more details than the White House had previously released.

The site reported that the first lady underwent an embolization procedure to treat a benign kidney condition almost a month ago. Mrs. Trump had a successful embolization procedure. She later said medical professionals who have been discussing the first lady's case with journalists are "uninformed". But her silence for nearly one month did not help to silence rumors and conspiracy theories from brewing online.

In a statement after the president's comments, Grisham stood by her earlier comments.

The latest criticism is the First Lady's absence from President Trump's upcoming trips to the G7 summit in Canada and his meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in Singapore next week.

Look through this gallery to see Melania Trump during her visit the Federal Emergency Management Agency Headquarters with husband Donald Trump.

Throughout the 25-second clip, Donald repeatedly pointed his finger toward the windows on the upper floor of the White House, telling the reporters that Melania, 48, is "right there".

She has since attended one closed-door White House event and is expected to appear in public later Wednesday, appearing at an event at the Federal Emergency Management Agency Headquarters with her husband.

Though a Gold Star Memorial event for the families of fallen soldiers at the White House was closed to press on Monday, this is when we finally saw Trump after more than 20 days of not making a single public appearance.

"Thank you, Melania. She's doing great". The president even cracked a joke about the gossip surrounding the first lady's prolonged period away from the public eye with the crowd.
