President Donald Trump left the White House Friday afternoon for a weekend at the presidential retreat in Maryland.

There is no word on when she will appear in public again.

Spouses often accompany leaders to G7 meetings. People on social media have speculated about the reason for her 24-day absence from the public eye, with some cracking jokes and others showing concern.

This news initially raised questions about whether Melania Trump would remain out of public view going on four weeks.

Then, on May 30 an update popped up on the First Lady's Twitter account.

She married the 45th President of the USA in 2005.

The president said last week that his wife is "doing great".

As per a White House official statement, the operation was successful.

The mystery deepened when President Trump was preparing to board Marine One to attend the commencement at the US Naval Academy on May 25.

Melania was last seen on May 10 when she stood by the President and welcomed home three American detainees from North Korea. Her office said it was benign, or non-cancerous. She was released from the hospital five days later.

Meanwhile, both Donald Jr. and Kushner looked sharp in dark suits as they walked the White House lawn.

There have been reported sightings but no photographic evidence.

Another FIR has been registered against the CRPF driver under Sections 279 (rash driving) and 337 RPC, the official said. Few of the protesters attacked a vehicle of the security forces which hit two of them, leaving them injured.

That's because the 48-year-old first lady won't be joining the president on these upcoming trips, her spokeswoman told ABC News Sunday. However, Trump is apparently doing well, if her latest tweets are to be believed.

Melania's only public communication during this time has come via six tweets. There have been more Bigfoot sightings than Melania sightings since before her kidney surgery at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on May 14.

A source told the gossip website: 'She's taking care of her mother, ' who is battling a pretty serious illness. She's (Melania) not in the White House'. Has there ever been less scrutiny of a modern First Lady? Trump's youngest son, Barron, 12, also was not seen boarding the helicopter.

They are legal permanent residents of the United States and often travel with the Trumps.

Melania's absence led to many people making widespread rumours and conspiracy theories.

The event on Monday could be the only time that Melania Trump is seen for some time.
