After undergoing an embolization procedure to treat a benign kidney condition almost a month ago, First Lady Melania Trump is set to appear today with with her husband at FEMA headquarters.

Two White House journalists said they were present when the first lady was spotted on May 30, and reported at the time that she looked well.

But when New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman asked the first lady's spokeswoman about these claims, she said: "I don't believe Mrs. Trump has ever discussed her thoughts on anything with Mr. Giuliani". 'The people of our country love you, so thank you, honey'.

She has since attended one closed-door White House event and is expected to appear in public later Wednesday, appearing at an event at the Federal Emergency Management Agency Headquarters with her husband.

Melania Trump has returned, America! Unlike her husband, the first lady enjoys keeping a low profile and avoids the media spotlight. But he said he's going without her because she had a four-hour operation and doctors told her not to fly for a month. She hasn't been seen for 24 days, and public speculation was growing.

Well, the suspense is over, because on Monday night, Melania Trump was in attendance at a Gold Star Families reception.

Such a weeks-long disappearance by a modern-day first lady is indeed rare, said Ohio University history professor Katherine Jellison, an expert on presidents' wives. The president even cracked a joke about the gossip surrounding the first lady's prolonged period away from the public eye with the crowd.
