Trump promoting youth sports with event on South Lawn

President Trump hosted a field day at the White House on Wednesday to encourage more kids to participate in sports. However, a new tweet from the first lady could effectively douse cold water on those rumors.

Melania Trump is squashing conspiracy theories that have swirled in the three weeks that she's been absent from the public eye.

While many administrations have sought expert counsel in the past, former Obama advisor and email recipient Evan Medeiros speculated that the thinly-reported information was presented in an attempt to gain positive media attention and "fan tweets". "Rest assured, I'm here at the @WhiteHouse w my family, feeling great, & working hard on behalf of children & the American people!" she tweeted.

"She is resting comfortably and remains in high spirits", the White House said in a statement on May 19, the day she returned from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

Asked about the first lady's health before he boarded the presidential helicopter on the South Lawn, Trump pointed to the second floor of the White House and said: "She's doing great".

"Right there. She's doing great".


Melania's Twitter feed is usually full of warm-hearted, celebratory messages to members of the USA armed forces, women, U.S. citizens and the charities she supports.

"Sadly, we deal with conspiracy theories all the time - so this is nothing new, just more silly nonsense", Grisham told CNN of internet criticism and wild rumors that Mrs. Trump had moved back to NY.

Trump is not obligated to publicly disclose her health or what she does with her time, but first ladies have often been public about such matters.

"Regardless of party, I think all Americans wish @FLOTUS only the best". Wearing a sparkling Chanel Haute Couture gown, Trump was every inch appearing as a comfortable and capable first lady, nearly 16 months into her tenure. The president was once the owner the USFL's New Jersey Generals - his team was led by Walker, a Heisman Trophy-winning running back - and Trump frequently plays golf with members of Congress and world leaders.

During her public absence, a handful of social media postings have appeared on her accounts.

There are darker suspicions about the First Lady's absence, although, it's worth noting that according to one writer, Amanda Fortini, who had a similar kidney procedure around the same time as Melania, "It takes more than 18 days to recover".
