Mrs. Trump skipping G7, North Korea summits

US President Donald Trump is due to attend the G7 summit in Quebec this week before travelling to Singapore for a summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un on 12 June - but his first lady will not be by his side. As CNN notes, a year ago the White House only released a statement following the reception with a snippet of the first lady's remarks, so we probably shouldn't expect to see any photos from the event.

The White House announced four days later that Mrs. Trump had been hospitalized to treat a kidney condition.

Recently, we haven't seen any pictures or videos of Melania working on any of her projects, and it is leading to questions about her week-long stay in the hospital and extended recovery time for an easy procedure that is supposed to have a quick recovery.

Her absence from public events she would normally attend has sparked speculation in the USA media and on Twitter.

Mrs. Trump accompanied her husband to the G7 summit in Italy past year.

Melania took to Twitter on Wednesday to address claims, reports and conspiracy theories about her absence.

"She will not attend the G7 and there are no plans for her to travel to Singapore at this time", her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, said in an e-mail on Sunday.

Tiffany Trump, White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner and his wife Ivanka Trump leave the White House Friday.

Without Proof, Trump Says Mueller's Team Will Meddle In 2018 Midterms
In 2017 President Trump's Justice Department declined any further criminal investigations. Instead, he claimed that "they [Mueller's team] are giving us the material to do it".

A spokesperson for the first lady confirmed the planned appearance to CNN.

In a May 30 tweet, the first lady needled the media for speculating about her whereabouts.

Melania wrote on the micro-blogging site.

The first lady also dashed off a tweet.

Donald Trump just spent the weekend at Camp David - without her.

But she will be a notable presence for the White House to deal with on their next two big foreign trips.

But, Huffington Post compared Melania's tweet with previous tweets from the President, and they pointed out that "working overtime" is one of the President's favorite phrases.
