Melania Trump to skip Camp David trip, marking a 22-day absence

  • Melania Trump hasn't been seen in public in 21 days leading to multiple conspiracy theories on her absence

The first lady stayed behind Friday when President Trump, his daughters, eldest son and son-in-law went to the Camp David retreat for the weekend.

US first lady Melania Trump arrives in the Rose Garden to speak at the White House May 7, 2018 in Washington, DC.

Mrs. Trump was last seen in public just days before she was hospitalized for surgery last month. She checked into Walter Reed Medical Center for treatment of what the White House called a benign kidney condition May 14 and didn't leave until May 19.

Melania Trump sought to quash the more outlandish ideas Thursday, tweeting: "I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing".

A law student at Georgetown University, Tiffany makes less public appearances alongside her father than her older siblings, but when she does, she opts for stylish outfits, choosing formfitting dresses and sky-high heels.

People were quick to pick up on her use of "working overtime".

Grisham told ABC News last Wednesday that the first lady was "doing really well". "Most of us don't even know cursory information about her - I would bet most people don't even know her home country".

The first lady will not attend either of the prominent global events, her Communications Director Stephanie Grisham told the ABC News.

He added, "My question: why is the press being so quiet about this and how does it reflect on their attitude towards Melania in general?"

In a May 30 tweet, the first lady needled the media for speculating about her whereabouts.

The first lady did attend the G7 summit in Sicily previous year, making headlines on her debut global trip as first lady.

U.S. first lady Melania Trump hosts a roundtable discussion with tech leaders on the effects of the Internet on children, at the White House in Washington, U.S. March 20, 2018.

According to CNN, Grisham again stated on Friday that Melania "is fine, she's doing great".
