President Donald Trump praised his wife and first lady Melania Trump at her first public appearance in nearly a month after recovering from kidney surgery.

“She had a little rough patch, but she’s doing great,” Trump said, adding, “I love you, and the people of our country love you.”

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 White House reception Monday evening and will make her public debut Wednesday.

Trump blasted such media speculation in a series of Wednesday morning tweets.
