Trump Says a ‘Big Operation’ Kept Melania Trump From G-7

Trump Says a ‘Big Operation’ Kept Melania Trump From G-7

President Trump on Friday shared new details about his wife's health, telling reporters that her medical procedure last month lasted almost four hours and that she is under doctors' orders not to fly.

"The first lady's great", Trump told reporters Friday on the South Lawn before heading to Canada to attend the Group of 7 (G-7) summit. "She wanted to go, [but] can't fly for one month, the doctors say".

She was treated at Walter Reed hospital on May 14 for what aides called a "benign" kidney condition and was released on May 19.

The first lady of Japan was in Washington D.C., Thursday but Melania didn't spend any time with her, according to reports.

But Dr. Nancy Simpkins told Inside Edition she didn't know what to make of the Trump's explanation. On Wednesday, she accompanied the president to a meeting on hurricane readiness at the Federal Emergency Management Agency headquarters with the president.

Pederson: Eagles moving on from White House saga
Trump's tool of football patriotism has become politically potent as it accelerated the decline in NFL viewership last season. After the event was canceled, Trump invited Eagles fans to a " Celebration of America " on the White House lawn instead.

Mr Trump earlier said the 48-year-old Slovenia-born former model was "doing really well!". "She is first lady of America, but I'm first lady Trump, excuse me, and have three grown-up kids". At FEMA headquarters, the president acknowledged the first lady's health problems as she sat by his side in a khaki jacket. "Right there", pointing up to the White House from the driveway.

But Trump's statement made it sound as if the procedure was far more serious than that.

The seemingly unending speculation about her whereabouts appeared to irritate Trump and his wife. During her recovery from surgery, they reported everything from near death, to a facelift, to left the W.H. "Mrs. Trump had a successful embolization procedure".

"I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing", the first lady tweeted last week.

"Thank you to the Gold Star families that joined us in celebration & remembrance", Melania tweeted. She wore a simple black dress, which you can see if you squint real hard at those pics above.
