President Trump says first lady is doing 'really well'

Melania Trump had an "embolisation procedure to treat a benign kidney condition", according to a statement.

Grisham had told ITK on Monday that Trump was "doing well".

Following the procedure, President Trump spoke with doctors, and later traveled by his Marine One helicopter to the hospital to visit his wife.

First lady Melania Trump underwent the procedure and will remain in the hospital for the week.

It did not take long before prominent people on social media used Trump's hospitalization to attack her marriage with President Donald Trump. "Thank you to all of the well-wishers!" he tweeted. The president spent a little over an hour at the hospital with his wife before departing via motorcade under stormy skies. "[Renal artery embolization] is a minimally invasive, typically low-risk procedure performed by a radiologist, who inserts a catheter into the patient's arm or leg and cuts off blood flow to the area, causing the [affected area] to shut down".

"They're probably keeping her there because of her first lady status", she said.

The White House did not offer any additional details on Mrs. Trump's condition. "So can they please just let it go and stop pretending?" She and the president have a son together, Barron, 12. "The First Lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere".

The first lady joined her husband last month to host Japan's prime minister for a two-day summit at the Trumps' Florida estate, and the Trumps hosted France's president at the White House on a three-day state visit, including the lavish state dinner.
