President Donald Trump told reporters before departing Singapore that first lady Melania Trump is “doing great.”
“She’s doing great,” Trump responded, after a member of the White House press asked about the health of First Lady Melania Trump.
Asked why the first lady did not join him for the trip, Trump said that his wife was given orders to not fly within 30 days of her surgery for her kidney condition, but he remarked that she did however attend a function at Fords Theatre back in D.C.
“30 days,” he Trump said. “I don’t know what it it is, but 30 days she’s not supposed to fly. She’s doing great. In fact she was at Ford’s theater last night.”
After a week of speculations and conspiracies by the liberal media, the first lady Melania Trump stepped back into the spotlight Sunday to serve as the Honorary Chair at a Ford’s Theater Gala to honor President Abraham Lincoln.
“Thank you @Fordstheatre & the talented performers for a special evening celebrating the arts & the legacy of former President Lincoln. Congratulations to @jacknicklaus & Sheila Johnson, the recipients of the Lincoln Medal,” she captioned her post on Instagram, along with a handful of pictures from the evening.
First Lady Melania Trump gave remarks to conclude a gala at Ford’s Theatre on Sunday evening. Mrs. Trump thanked performers and congratulated this year’s winners of the Lincoln Medal, an award honoring those who have embodied President Abraham Lincoln’s legacy through their work, according to the White House.
“I was honored to be part of such a special evening,” said Mrs. Trump, according to a White House press release. “Tonight reminds all of us about the power the arts have in cultivating the American voice. Thank you to Ford’s Theatre Society for tonight, and your continued dedication to education and leadership in the arts — the impact they have on society is invaluable and something we will continue to cherish throughout time.”
