Melania Trump's spokesperson also confirmed Sunday that she will not attend the G7 Summit or Singapore meeting with President Trump this month.

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

Trump's communications director Stephanie Grisham denied the rumors, telling CNN the first lady has been recuperating, but also taking meetings with her staff at the White House, discussing her initiatives as well as upcoming events like the Congressional Picnic and Fourth of July.

FLOTUS hasn't been seen since May 10 in her last official public duty.

The first lady joined the president for his first G7 trip to Italy a year ago, where she joined the spouses of other G7 leaders at public events.

It's unclear when Trump will make a public appearance, but Grisham insisted Friday, "She is fine, she's doing great".

Ukrainian authorities said the goal of the staged murder was to catch the people who'd actually been planning to kill Babchenko . According to yesterday's official narrative, his wife found Babchenko lying lifeless on the ground, covered in blood.

The reception is not open to the press, the White House added.

The past three weeks the world has been asunder with the question: where is Melania Trump and what is she doing?!

As has been the case throughout Melania Trump's 23-day disappearance, Grisham gave no reasons for the first lady's absence from the two important foreign trips.

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".

Melania Trump attended the G7 meeting in Italy a year ago. Some noted the similarity to Trump's voice, while others noted the fact that anyone could easily tweet from her account.

People were quick to pick up on her use of "working overtime". Just a few days later she went to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for a kidney procedure, and we haven't seen her since.
