  • Where is Melania

In a tweet storm on Friday, Black wrote: "I've been obsessing a bit over Melania's disappearance - and that's what it is". With this, it has been the last 22 days that Melania last made a public appearance.

The White House said on Friday that Melania Trump would not be joining her husband at the Camp David presidential retreat this weekend. As the global media couldn't stop speculating about her whereabouts, she took to Twitter to quash rumours about her health and marriage. The White House gave no explanation as to why her hospital stay was five days.

Tiffany Trump may not have an eponymous fashion line like older sister Ivanka's, but that doesn't mean she isn't aware of the latest trends.

A White House spokesperson said: "Sadly, we deal with conspiracy theories all the time, so this is nothing new, just more silly nonsense".

The first lady did attend the G7 summit in Sicily past year, making headlines on her debut worldwide trip as first lady.

The first lady has gone on other prominent worldwide trips.

Melania was last seen on May 10 when she stood by the President and welcomed home three American detainees from North Korea.

On May 30, an update on Melania Trump's Twitter account read, "I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing".

And with that, he launched into an exploration of possible reasons why Melania Trump appears to be laying low and if the press- for some unknown reason - is covering for her and the president. Has there ever been less scrutiny of a modern First Lady?

"We are focused on her initiatives, and also some longer-term planning for events such as the congressional picnic and 4th of July", spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told media outlets.

There have been no indications on when she may been seen in public again and the two events she is working on are likely weeks away.
