Melania Trump 'had big operation and can't fly for a month'

Melania Trump 'had big operation and can't fly for a month'

Melania Trump will remain at the White House with her son, Baron, during the president's G7 meetings in Canada and his summit next week with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. "She wanted to go". The doctors say. She had a big operation.

U.S. President Donald Trump (C-L), with US Vice President Mike Pence (2nd L) and First Lady Melania Trump (C R), visits the Federal Emergency Management Agency Headquarters and attend a 2018 Hurricane Briefing in Washington, D.C., on June 6, 2018. "Mrs. Trump had a successful embolization procedure".

"The statement I put out on May 14 was correct", Grisham said Friday in an email.

The details given by the president on Friday also do not match up with the surgical or recovery timeline for a typical embolization procedure with no complications, according to experts.

She went quiet in March as a media storm raged about revelations that her husband's lawyer paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 before the 2016 election to keep silent over her alleged affair with Trump years earlier. Embolization, which involves cutting blood flow to an area like an abnormal growth, is typically a minor enough procedure that general anesthesia is not required.

Trump says he will ask kneeling athletes to recommend people to pardon
At the start of last season, Trump exhorted NFL owners to fire players who take a knee during the national anthem. Players will be permitted to remain in the locker room during the anthem if they so choose.

The president that afternoon tweeted that he was headed to the medical center to see his wife and that it was a "successful procedure, she is in good spirits".

She ended the speculation this week by making her first public appearance in almost a month, accompanying Mr Trump to a hurricane preparedness briefing at Federal Emergency Management Agency headquarters in Washington on Wednesday. "She can not travel internationally yet, and is doing great", Grisham said. "Right there", pointing up to the White House from the driveway.

Before this week, Mrs. Trump was last seen in public on May 10, helping Trump welcome home three Americans released from detention in North Korea.

"The Fake News Media has been so unfair, and vicious, to my wife and our great First Lady, Melania", he tweeted this week. "Fake News is really bad!"
