President Donald Trump slammed media speculation as to his wife’s whereabouts during her nearly three-week public absence while recovering from kidney surgery.

Theories abounded in the weeks Melania did not appear publicly with several media outlets running stories questioning the White House’s silence on the matter.

Melania appeared in her official capacity for the first time at a Gold Star families reception Monday evening and will make her public debut Wednesday.

The first lady is scheduled to attend a FEMA briefing with the president Wednesday afternoon, which will mark her first truly public appearance.
