First Lady Will Not Join President on Trips to G7, NKorea Summit

  • Melania Trump hasn't been seen in public in 21 days leading to multiple conspiracy theories on her absence

The president plans to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on June 12 in Singapore, the first leaders' summit between two countries that are still formally at war.

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 was last seen on May 10, which was three days after she introduced her anti-bullying campaign and four days before it was announced she was having kidney surgery at Walter Reed Medical Center.

When asked about the whereabouts of Melania, the Washington Post reported that President Trump pointed to a White House window and said: "She's doing great". Here are some other theories related to Trump and her disappearance.

Chinese Agreements to Have No Binding Force, If US Imposes Tariffs - Beijing
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Saturday the USA wants to see "structural changes" in the Chinese economy. China has promised to "significantly increase" purchases of farm goods, energy and other products and services.

The absence gave way to rumors that Melania may have left the White House or that there was more to her surgical procedure than the White House was letting on.

The First Lady spoke of the media "working overtime" and herself "working overtime on behalf of the American people", before signing off with an exclamation mark - all trademarks of her husband's idiosyncratic Twitter style, HuffPost notes.

Last year, Melania Trump scored some her first positive marks as Donald Trump's first lady when she made her global debut by accompanying her husband to the Middle East and to the G7 summit in Italy.

Her absence is leading to a plethora of different theories, including speculation that she has moved back to Trump Tower in NY.

But fans said inside Capital One Arena or not, they will be loud and proud cheering their team towards the Stanley Cup. You stop at the sports book, get a ticket, go to the game, come back. "To me it was the hockey gods", Trotz said.

Some say the language and tone of the tweet does not sound like Melania at all, and instead sounds more like something her husband would write.

Melania Trump's long absence is apparently coming to an end. First Ladies don't just drop out of sight; they go to Memorial Day wreath layings, for example.

That's because the 48-year-old first lady won't be joining the president on these upcoming trips, her spokeswoman told ABC News Sunday.

The event on Monday could be the only time that Melania Trump is seen for some time.
