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

Four days later, the White House announced that she had been hospitalized to treat a kidney condition described only as benign. The first lady remained in the hospital for five nights following the procedure prior to returning to the White House on May 19.

Melania Trump came home six days later, on a Saturday, but her arrival wasn't witnessed by reporters on site.

"I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing", her @FLOTUS tweet read.

This all comes just after Mrs. Trump's most high-profile period as First Lady.

The first lady underwent an embolization procedure on Monday, May 14, likely to remove a cyst from her kidney.

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




In addition, Melania Trump did not join the president on his weekend trip to Camp David, The Hill reported.

Tiffany sported a tweed minidress that she belted at the waist, completing her ensemble with clear-heeled sandals for a summery, on-trend look. "She was hospitalized for nearly a week and is now home and recovering".

However, Melania Trump has taken on more responsibilities since her husband was inaugurated, and on May 7 unveiled her initiative "Be Best" aimed at helping children with their social media presence and fighting opioid abuse, among other issues.

This tweet from her official @FLOTUS account last week only made people wonder if Trump was trying to craft statements on her behalf, since the language sounded a lot like something he would tweet.

But, Huffington Post compared Melania's tweet with previous tweets from the President, and they pointed out that "working overtime" is one of the President's favorite phrases.

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