Melania Trump: Why People Are Worried About Her

Celebrity - News


Kidney surgery

Any sort of surgery is scary, and Melania probably knows this well, as she was hospitalized to treat a benign kidney condition in May 2018. Melania's communications director, Stephanie Grisham, said the procedure was "successful" in a statement.

Long absence

Melania is protective of her personal life and it's rumored that she never wanted to be the First Lady, but no one thought she'd disappear from the public eye for a whopping 24 days. She vanished after her kidney surgery, prompting the hashtag #WhereIsMelania, until she resurfaced on June 4, 2018.

That weird tweet

In 2018, Melania tweeted the following: "I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am [...] I'm here at the @WhiteHouse w my family [...] working hard on behalf of children & the American people!" Her dislike of social media and the uncharacteristic voice of the tweet caused suspicion that Donald actually wrote it.

Her 'little problem'

At an event honoring Gold Star families on June 5, 2018, Donald said, "Melania had a little problem [...] but she wouldn't miss this for anything." "Her little problem is him," one user tweeted; another wrote, "That sounds utterly chilling, like he's warning her whatever 'problem' she had is going to happen again." Yikes!

in the spotlight

An insider says that before the presidency, "[Melania] was able to do whatever she wanted and have her family with her much of the time. In those days, she enjoyed spending time at her husband's Mar-a-Lago estate [...] Now it's a 24/7 tornado. She hates it."
