Melania's spokeswoman confirmed she will not travel to either Quebec for the G7 or Singapore later this month for the meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

The Gold Star event on Monday was closed to the press, with no opportunity for media photos or video, a decision made out of respect for the military family members, Trump's communications director Stephanie Grisham told CNN.

However, it's been reported that she was "barely seen" at Tuesday's event.

On Wednesday, Melania confronted the media speculating about her whereabouts tweeting, "I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing".

Asked at a news briefing on Monday whether the "maximum pressure" campaign would continue, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters: "We have sanctions on, they are very powerful and we would not take those sanctions off unless North Korea denuclearized".

Mrs Trump, 48, was hospitalised for five days, but her disappearance from the public eye following her surgery led to rumours about her health and marriage.

After the event, the first lady's office issued a statement thanking the families who came to the White House.

Wild theories began to circulate online, including that Mrs Trump had moved back to NY with their son, Barron, or that she was co-operating with special counsel Robert Mueller. "The procedure was successful and there were no complications", her spokesperson released in a statement at the time. Smiling for cameras from Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland, Melania Trump wore a checkered suit and her ubiquitous high heels, appearing happy and well for the 3 a.m. celebration of citizens returning to American soil. "I can't imagine a previous first lady disappearing for 24 days without some level of concern".

"The First Lady returned home to the White House this morning". Some of the more popular conspiracy theories suggest a longer-term recovery from plastic surgery or a condition that is not so benign; that she's left Trump and moved out of the White House entirely. These are Gold Star families.

"Good to see her doing so well" added Greene. She also skipped the last two stops on his Asian trip in November, going with him to Japan, South Korea and China but staying behind in Beijing when her husband went on to Vietnam and the Philippines.
