First lady Melania Trump is expected to host a reception for Gold Star families alongside her husband on Monday, marking her first public appearance in weeks.

First Lady Melania Trump made her first public appearance in almost a month on Monday after undergoing a medical procedure in mid-May.

At the time, many joked that the tweet did not sound like it was written by the First Lady.

"It was a privilege to welcome Gold Star Families to the White House today to recognize our Nation's fallen heroes and their families", Mrs. Trump said in a statement released after the event.

"Could you imagine if he called her the wrong name in bed?"

The good news on that front is that they have a pair of All-Stars coming back next season that missed the playoffs due to injury. I always leave everything on the court, every game.

"Mrs. Trump has always been a strong and independent woman who puts her family, and certainly her health above all else, and that won't change over a rabid press corps", said Grisham.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said that she has never heard Hagin say that, telling CNN that "I've worked very closely with Joe and it's just not how his mind thinks or the way that he operates". Such families have loved ones who were killed during military service.

First lady Melania Trump looks over at U.S. President Donald Trump as they wait at the West Wing door to welcome French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte Macron at the White House in Washington, U.S., April 23, 2018. Twitter was abuzz with theories from political observers, both on the left and the right, with a public anxious to see their first lady.

A short video showing the Trump's walking into the ceremony circulated online.

Mrs. Trump had not been seen in public since May 10, when she and the president welcomed home three Americans freed from North Korea.
