Melania Makes Public Appearance With President Trump as He Slams Rumors About Her 'Disappearance'
President Trump is apparently fed up with the speculation regarding his wife's whereabouts.
Melania Trump has made her first public appearance alongside her husband in weeks.
The first lady looked happy and healthy Wednesday as she attended a meeting with her husband and his cabinet to discuss the upcoming hurricane season with FEMA officials.
At the meeting, Trump said his wife "went through a little rough patch, but she's doing great.
"We're very proud of her. She's done a fantastic job as first lady."
Speaking to her, he added, "The people love you, the people of our country love you."
It's the first time Melania has been seen in public with her husband since May 10, when she welcomed three prisoners freed from captivity in North Korea back to America.
Several days later, she underwent a procedure for a benign kidney condition, and remained in the hospital for several days to recover.
Gold Star families got a glimpse of Melania at an event Monday, but reporters were barred from attending.
The president has not been pleased about speculation regarding her whereabouts.
"The Fake News Media has been so unfair, and vicious, to my wife and our great First Lady, Melania," he tweeted Wednesday. "During her recovery from surgery they reported everything from near death, to facelift, to left the W.H. (and me) for N.Y. or Virginia, to abuse. All Fake, she is doing really well!"
Fox News also went on the attack.
"To go as far as to say Melania might have been abused and that's why we haven't seen her in a while, that's ridiculous," Tomi Lahren said on "Fox & Friends."
Abby Huntsman added, "Give her a break. Melania is doing a great job. Let her recover, as she well needs to."
