US First Lady Melania Trump will not accompany the president to the Group of Seven summit in Canada, nor to planned North Korea nuclear talks in Singapore, her spokeswoman said today.
“She will not attend the G7 and there are no plans for her to travel to Singapore at this time,” Stephanie Grisham told AFP.
Melania Trump was hospitalised in May, undergoing an embolisation procedure for a “benign” kidney condition, according to Grisham.
Embolisation is most frequently used to cut off the flow of blood to a tumor or growth.
The first lady has not participated in a public event since returning from the hospital in mid-May.
