After nearly a month out of the public eye, the first lady attended an event to honour Gold Star families
Melania Trump has made her first public appearance in almost a month, at a White House event to honour Gold Star families. The first lady’s attendance at the reception on Monday evening ends weeks of fervent speculation as to her whereabouts. Internet conspiracy theories about “missing Melania” weren’t helped by reports over the weekend that the first lady will not be attending the upcoming G7 summit or the 12 June summit in Singapore with her husband.
While Monday’s event was closed to press, a blurry video which appears to show Melania Trump, but has not been verified, was posted on social media by Jena Greene, a reporter at the Daily Caller. Greene’s father was killed in action in Iraq in 2004, which means she is from a Gold Star family and would have been invited to the reception.
