Trump family goes on holiday, but where's Melania?

Melania Trump will not join husband at presidential retreat

Melania Trump will not join husband at presidential retreat

Donald Trump was scheduled to head to Maryland on Friday afternoon, but officials said his wife would not be boarding the presidential helicopter with him.

The First Lady last made a public appearance on May 10, when she accompanied her husband at Andrews Air Force Base to receive the three American detainees from North Korea.

The blog Showbiz411 quoted a source as saying the reason the first lady hasn't been seen in public in 21 days is because her mother, Amalija Knavs, is very ill.

She returned to the White House five days later after the "successful" procedure that had "no complications". "The First Lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere". The tweet also doesn't count as a public appearance, which means at the time of writing, it's now been 23 days since she was verifiably spotted.

According to The Daily Mail, a new conspiracy theory is alleging that President Donald Trump wrote the tweet, and not Melania. As the global media couldn't stop speculating about her whereabouts, she took to Twitter to quash rumours about her health and marriage.

Not everyone, though, believed that Mrs. Trump had actually written the tweet herself.

A year ago Melania joined her husband in Taormina, Italy, for a G7 meeting where she famously wore a $51,000 Dolce & Gabbana jacket.

Meanwhile, another tweet started doing the rounds which every first letter of, her sentences spelled the word "HELP".

On May 30, an update on Melania Trump's Twitter account read, "I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing".

Grisham told ABC News last Wednesday that the first lady was "doing really well".

But she remained in the hospital until May 19, with Grisham telling CNN that she was "in high spirits".
