Mrs Trump made her global debut as first lady at last year's G7 summit in Italy, and went on to attend the G20 in Germany.

The event, which will take place this afternoon at the White House, will be closed to the press.

The first lady's absence from the public eye has been widely documented, with Melania not spotted since making a joint appearance with Trump on May 10, when the pair welcomed home three American hostages returning from North Korea. She'd recently spent several days at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center after undergoing a surgical procedure for what a spokeswoman described as a benign kidney condition.

"Great to have our incredible First Lady back home in the White House". She is resting comfortably and remains in high spirits. According to CNN, Trump made a joke about Melania's prolonged absence, saying that the media were speculating the first lady had left him.

Where Is Melania? Jokes Aside, Concern Grows About MIA First Lady
However, she recently tweeted that she was "working hard" and "feeling great", but some believe that the FLOTUS didn't write it. First Ladies don't just drop out of sight; they go to Memorial Day wreath layings, for example. "She is not going".

"I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing", she wrote. "Melania Missing" posters are popping up on telephone poles in Manhattan. 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.

Meanwhile, the rumour mill churns online. 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. "I think there are Democrats, Republicans, fans - there are lots of people just wondering where is the first lady of the United States", Bennett said. First. Trump tweeted about his wife's health, misspelling her name.

The president literally pointed at a window, indicating the presence of the first lady, but ... she wasn't there. But, in a twist worthy of Poe or Coleridge, when said reporters turned to the window to look for Melania Trump, she was nowhere to be found.

She went quiet in March as a media storm raged about revelations that her husband's lawyer paid porn star Stormy Daniels US$130,000 before the 2016 election to keep silent over her alleged affair with Mr Trump years earlier.

"These families have endured the ultimate in pain and sacrifice on behalf of our country, and I am honored to have spent the evening with them", she added.

It was initially announced that Melania would be in the hospital for two or three days, and the White House offered no comment on why her time in the hospital was significantly longer.

It's still unclear when the first lady will make an appearance in public.
