Melania Trump's absence continues, skipping Camp David weekend

Melania Trump's absence continues, skipping Camp David weekend

Mrs. Trump stayed behind Friday when President Donald Trump, his daughters, eldest son and son-in-law went to the Camp David retreat for the weekend.

Stephanie Grisham, the first lady's communications director, told ABC News that the first lady will be skipping the trips.

FLOTUS hasn't been seen since May 10 in her last official public duty.

The White House announced four days later that Melania Trump had been hospitalised to treat a kidney condition. The 24-year-old's last appearance came on Easter weekend, when she attended church services in Florida with her dad and was seen at the Easter Egg Roll at the White House on Monday. Asked about the first lady's health before he boarded the presidential helicopter on the South Lawn, Trump pointed to the second floor of the White House and said: "She's doing great". With this, it has been the last 22 days that Melania last made a public appearance.

In her absence, rumors and conspiracy theories have flourished.

'I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing.

Trump will fight any effort to subpoena his testimony, Giuliani says
It is a bold assertion of presidential power and another front on which Trump's lawyers have argued that he can not be subpoenaed. In the letter, the lawyers note the importance of the presidency itself.

Trump can 'probably' pardon himself over Russian Federation but won't, Giuliani says
Those opinions, though, are not the same as a court decision, nor do they rule out a president being forced to testify. Previously, the Trump team had denied , unconvincingly, that the president had anything to do with that missive.

Coli outbreak in lettuce spreads even futrther, more deaths confirmed
Some of the tainted lettuce tied to the massive E. coli outbreak in the United States was from Imperial County. Most people recover within a week, but some illnesses can last longer and be more severe.

Some say the language and tone of the tweet does not sound like Melania at all, and instead sounds more like something her husband would write.

This all comes just after Mrs. Trump's most high-profile period as First Lady.

She spent a week in the hospital recovering at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

The White House has released little information about her since the operation and Melania herself is under no public obligation to disclose what she has been doing. "Rest assured, I'm here at the @WhiteHouse w my family, feeling great, & working hard on behalf of children & the American people!".

On the first couple's last day in Sicily before jetting back to Washington, they stopped at the U.S. naval air base in Sigonella, Sicily, where the first lady gave brief remarks to troops prior to the President taking the podium.
