The leftist media has been engaged in conspiracy theories about First Lady Melania Trump’s whereabouts for weeks, despite knowing she underwent serious surgery in May.
The latest criticism is the First Lady’s absence from President Trump’s upcoming trips to the G7 summit in Canada and his meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in Singapore next week.
Speaking to reporters from the South Lawn of the White House before taking off for the G7 Friday morning, President Trump explained why his wife won’t be joining him.
“The First Lady is great…she wanted to go — can’t fly for one month,” he said. “The doctors say. She had a big operation. That was a, close to a four-hour operation. And she’s doing great.” . . .
The first lady's office said she'd undergone a procedure for a benign kidney condition, but Trump says the first lady isn't traveling with him because she had a four-hour operation and doctors told her not to fly for a month. https://t.co/qpNUzhovz1

Her office said the condition was benign, they did not say the surgery was benign nor minor. Resting after surgery is standard procedure. This is ridiculous. https://t.co/dn9ZYOeUXw
