President Trump revealed Friday that Melania is still recovering from the kidney procedure she underwent three weeks ago.

Dr. Kelvin Hong, the director of the Johns Hopkins Interventional Radiology Center, said a four-hour operation to treat the condition described by the White House would be unusual. She had a big operation. "She had a big operation, it was close to a four-hour operation, and she's doing great, right there", he said, pointing up again.

"She's doing great", Trump added. We're very proud of her.

Throughout the 25-second clip, Donald repeatedly pointed his finger toward the windows on the upper floor of the White House, telling the reporters that Melania, 48, is "right there".

Mrs. Trump underwent a surgical procedure at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on May 14, and remained hospitalized for nearly a week. She was in the hospital for almost a week.

"The procedure was successful and there were no complications", the statement read.

Trump told reporters as he left the White House on Friday for the G7 meeting in Quebec that Mrs Trump wanted to join him at an annual summit of leading industrialised nations, as she did past year, but that she "can't fly for one month".

Was the first lady's medical crisis more serious than Americans have been led to believe? Her office has declined to release additional details.

Her style remained unchanged.

"Thank you to the Gold Star families that joined us in celebration & remembrance", Melania tweeted. During her recovery from surgery, they reported everything from near death, to a facelift, to left the W.H. "I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing".
