The media is now openly speculating about Melania Trump since she hasn’t made a public appearance in about two weeks.
The Washington Post ran a story Friday titled, “Trump says the first lady is ‘doing great.’ She hasn’t been seen in public for two weeks.”
However, despite the headline, the Post’s story actually does contain a comment from Melania Trump’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham.
First lady Melania Trump has reportedly been spending her time working on her initiatives to help the well-being and children and fight bullying.
Grisham said, “We’ve had several internal staff meetings in the past week around a variety of topics, including her initiatives.”
Melania announced her “Be Best” anti-bullying initiative earlier this month and President Trump signed it.
“Melania, your care and compassion for our nation’s children — and I have to say this and I say it to you all the time — inspires us all,” Trump said. (RELATED: WATCH: Trump Signs Melania Trump’s Anti-Bullying Initiative)
“There are too many critical issues facing children today so the three main pillars of BE BEST will include well-being, social media use, and opioid abuse,” Melania said when introducing her initiative.
“We can and should teach children the important of social and self-awareness, positive relationship skills, and responsible decision making.” (RELATED: Melania Trump Announces ‘BE BEST’ Campaign For Children)
Melania is also recovering from a minor kidney surgery she recently had. President Trump was asked about her health at the White House Friday. Trump said, “She’s doing great.”
He also pointed to a window in the White House and said, “Right there. She’s doing great. Just looking at us, right there.” (RELATED: Trump Points To Melania’s White House Window And Gives An Update On Her Health)
