Melania Trump in hospital after kidney surgery

Melania Trump has been taken to hospital

"This morning, First Lady Melania Trump underwent an embolisation procedure to treat a benign kidney condition", the first lady's communications director, Stephanie Grisham, explains.

Friends close to the Trump family also learned of Melania's surgery through the news; many were surprised the president was not present during surgery.

He told the audience that she is "on our hearts" and "we're praying for her speedy and full recovery".

Taking to Twitter he wrote: "Heading over to Walter Reed Medical Center to see our great First Lady, Melania".

The first lady unveiled her official platform from the White House's Rose Garden on Monday, May 7, focusing on the welfare of children.

The president tweeted shortly before arriving at Walter Reed outside Washington, saying it was a "successful procedure", describing his wife as being "in good spirits" and offering his thanks "to all of the well-wishers!"

Another doctor, however, said Mrs. Trump was probably being kept in the hospital longer because of her position.

A spokeswoman for the First Lady declined to offer more details on her condition but said the 48-year-old is recovering. "In the press release, it said she would be out for the rest of the week, and we're on Monday".

President Donald Trump has arrived at a military hospital near Washington to visit his wife, Melania, who underwent a procedure to treat a benign kidney condition.

According to Elizabeth Kavaler, a urologist at Lenox Hill Hospital in NY, the first lady may have a common, benign tumor of the kidney called an angiomyolipoma, or AML.
