Trump pays return visit to hospitalised first lady

Trump pays return visit to hospitalised first lady

The White House said the procedure was "successful" and there were no complications. The outlet also reported that President Donald Trump remained at the White House during his wife's surgery, but that he's expected to visit the hospital soon.

"I want to start by saying that Melania is in the hospital doing really well".

The first lady (48) underwent an "embolisation" procedure at Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre outside Washington on Monday morning, her office announced.

Dr. Schrader can't speak specifically to why Mrs. Trump had an embolization, but she says the procedure can be used to address an abnormal blood vessel, growths or tumors, and abnormal cists. "The first lady looks forward to a full recovery". "So thank you and she sends her love", the president told the crowd.

Trump is the first U.S. First Lady to undergo a serious medical procedure while in the White House since Nancy Reagan underwent a mastectomy in 1987, CNN reported.

Later at an event honoring fallen police officers on Capitol Hill he again adressed her stay at Walter Reed Medical Center just outside Washington.


Earlier Tuesday, the president tweeted that she was "doing really well" and would be "leaving the hospital in 2 or 3 days".

The former model from Slovenia is Trump's third wife and the couple has been married for 13 years. She's watching us right now.

She also joined her husband last month to host the prime minister of Japan for a two-day summit at the Trumps' Florida estate, and the Trumps hosted the president of France at the White House on a three-day state visit, including a lavish state dinner.

The Trumps' marriage has come under scrutiny in recent months after revelations that a porn actress was paid $130,000 to keep quiet about claims she had sex with Trump in 2006.

Mrs. Trump unveiled her official policy platform "Be Best" last week.

The first lady lived full time in NY during the administration's opening months so Barron would not have to change schools midyear.
