Melania Trump will not attend G7 or Singapore summits

The first lady and president hosted a similar event this same time a year ago in honor of the families of those who made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve America's freedom.

Trump had last been seen on May 10 standing alongside her husband at Joint Base Andrews as the couple greeted three Americans who had been released from prison in North Korea.

The first lady's whereabouts had been a mystery since May 19, when she returned to the White House five days after undergoing a procedure for a benign kidney condition.

After meeting a senior official from Pyongyang at the White House on Friday, Trump said North Korea was being more cooperative and that although sanctions would remain in place, he would hold off on imposing new ones. The reception is not open to the press, the White House added.

However, the first lady's absence made her appearance all the more newsworthy. The press is not invited, but no doubt we will receive some kind of confirmation from some source whether the first lady was there or not.

"Rest assured, I'm here at the @WhiteHouse w my family, feeling great, & working hard on behalf of children & the American people!" she wrote.

Grisham said the Gold Star families' event is important to Mrs. Trump and has been on her calendar for some time.

Following her medical operation, her absence at events where the public has come to expect to see her alongside the president was well documented, leading her to take to Twitter to castigate reporters.

First lady Melania Trump speaks during a discussion with students in the Blue Room of the White House in Washington, April 9, 2018. Some people have even been posting humorous flyers in NY seeking information on the "missing" first lady. These range from theories that the first lady had plastic surgery to speculation that she has had enough of political life and fled her marriage.

CNN and several other mainstream media outlets had been painting the first lady as "missing in action", even though several observers pointed out that the first lady was spotted in the West Wing as recently as May 29.

"Mrs. Trump is very strong and independent", Grisham said.

The White House had said gave no official reason for Melania Trump not going on this trip. Though it's her first appearance in weeks, the press was not asked to attend out of respect for the families' privacy.
