Pres. Trump decries 'fake' reporting on Melania, says she's well

Mr. Trump issued a statement Monday evening saying the full National Football League team would not be coming to the White House Tuesday after several players indicated they wouldn't participate.

In the photos of their appearance, the First Couple's body language-specifically Trump's aggressive lean-seems to display affection hammed up for the cameras, but hey, we're no experts. She was wearing a belted trench coat and her customary high heels.

The First Lady traveled with President Trump for a follow-up briefing at FEMA headquarters on the ongoing hurricane response. But so far, he said the school hasn't received details about how the program might be involved in the first lady's initiative.

Melania Trump underwent a procedure to treat a kidney condition.

"She had a little rough patch, but she's doing great", the president said at the top of a meeting on hurricane readiness. "And she's very, very interested in ways that we can reduce the supply chain, because she recognizes that having unused opioids in your medicine cabinet presents a tremendous risk".

"The first lady really loved that idea", Nantel said.

He added: "The people love you". Almost a month later, the hashtag, "Where is Melania Trump", began trending on Twitter. She spent almost a week in the hospital and was rarely seen since.

She did not speak at the event Wednesday.

Despite his segment on the matter, CNN's Brian Stelter tweeted that the president was "conflating random Twitter commentators with 'the media'". A USA Today newsletter noted, "Melania is alive and 'feeling great, ' she, or perhaps her husband, says".

"The Fake News Media has been so unfair, and vicious, to my wife and our great First Lady, Melania", Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.

Trump tweeted Wednesday that during Melania Trump's recovery from a medical procedure: "they reported everything from near death, to facelift, to left the W.H".

Wild theories have circulated online, including that Mrs Trump had moved back to NY with their son, Barron, or that she was co-operating with special counsel Robert Mueller.

Trump also paired the text of the tweets with video of himself and the first lady on his Facebook page.

The Independent floated the idea that Mrs. Trump had received a "facelift". As she has acknowledged, it has provoked mockery from some critics because of the president's notorious Twitter habits.
