Donald Trump Denounces Rumors About Melania Trump's Absence

Jena Greene, a Gold Star daughter who attended the event with her family, told ABC News the first lady, wearing a black dress and her signature high heels, appeared to be doing well.

In the interim, Mrs. Trump underwent a kidney procedure and recuperated in the hospital for five days, according to the White House.

Last week, Mrs Trump's Twitter account addressed the rumours around her nearly-month long disappearance. The White House offered few updates on the first lady's condition, and this week, her office lashed out at journalists for asking.

In a follow-up tweet, Trump claimed that a number of reporters had actually seen Melania in the White House last week "walking merrily along" to a meeting, but said they never reported those sightings because it would "hurt the sick narrative".

Long avoided commenting on Trump himself, pointing out that he had boycotted White House celebrations once before as a Patriots player, and adding, "I have three years of quotes about Donald Trump".

Fishermen attempted to rescue Docho, but they only managed to prevent the crocodile from taking his body with fishing nets. The Telegraph reported that lake and riverside baptisms are common in many African countries, notwithstanding the risk.

She did not speak at the event Wednesday.

But her low-key presence - Melania Trump sat to her husband's left around a conference table and nodded as her husband and other officials spoke - marked the first time she's been seen by the media for almost a month, capping the end of an unusual absence from public sight, even from a first lady who is known for prizing her privacy. Melania Trump stepped easily, smiled and was heard telling one worker "thank you very much". Trump tweeted before the appearance Wednesday.

Fox News Channel, Trump's favorite cable network and one he spends a considerable amount of time watching, aired a segment earlier this week in which the hosts of one of its programs criticized news reports about the first lady's status.

But the presidential press corps were not invited to that function for military families. However, in the room of FEMA officials-who were all clad in their dark suits, as were President Trump and VP Pence-Melania's look immediately catches the eye.
