Despite a recent claim by Donald Trump that his wife Melania could be seen in a White House window, the first lady has not been seen in public since May 10, when she accompanied her husband at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland as three Americans held captive in Korea returned to the United States.
Sometime soon after that public appearance, the 48-year-old reportedly entered a hospital for what was described as a minor kidney procedure. Though she reportedly returned to the White House a few days later, Melania Trump has not made a public appearance since then, and no official explanation has been given for her vanishing act, almost three weeks after the Andrews Air Force Base sighting.
But a new development noticed by a sharp-eyed Twitter personality has set off a new sound of speculation that Melania has actually left Washington, D.C., altogether and moved back to New York City, where she had lived since 1996 prior to relocating to the nation's capital last year.
The Slovenia native's preference for New York City has been no secret. Following her husband's inauguration on January 20, 2017, Melania and her then 11-year-old son with Trump, Barron, waited nearly five months before making the move from their Trump Tower apartment to the White House.
As spotted by the popular anti-Trump Twitter commentator "Tea Pain," Melania Trump recently switched the location status on her personal Twitter account to "New York City."
