Gossip has mounted in the 20 days since she was last seen, with President Donald Trump as he welcomed home three United States detainees from North Korea.

Four days later, the White House announced that the first lady had been admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to undergo minor surgery.

The first lady tweeted Wednesday that she's "working hard" and "feeling great".

Participants at the White House event will include "The Incredible Hulk" actor Lou Ferrigno, who befriended Trump while appearing on "Celebrity Apprentice"; former New York Yankees' baseball players Johnny Damon and Mariano Rivera; former football star Herschel Walker; beach volleyball Olympic gold medalist Misty May-Treanor; and professional golfer Natalie Gulbis.

However, she was spotted around the White House as recently as Tuesday afternoon.

A recent blunder by White House communications aide Kelly Sadler showed that the Trump administration has been emailing prominent members from former administrations in the hopes that they would amplify some of the president's foreign policy stances, including his abandoning of the Iran nuclear deal earlier this month.

When we do finally see Melania again, will she be different like some of the conspiracy theories suggest?




"She's doing really well", Grisham told ABC News.

Mrs. Trump tweeted Wednesday that she's "feeling great" and is at the White House working hard for children and American families. "Just looking at us, right there".

CNN ran a full story on the topic, rehashing previous reporting on President Trump's weight loss efforts from the start of the year.

The first lady's tweet was an attempt to tamp down rumors about her whereabouts since her last public appearance, back on on May 10. The president also raised eyebrows by spelling his wife's name wrong in a tweet welcoming her home from hospital. I wouldn't characterise it as a long absence.

"She was hospitalised for nearly a week and is now home and recovering". Last Friday morning, a reporter shouted a question to the president about a his wife's whereabouts as he prepared to board Marine One to attend the Naval Academy commencement.

Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter and senior adviser, said that the Aspen Institute found that 37 percent of children played team sports on a regular basis in 2016, down from almost 45 percent in 2008.
