Vice President Mike Pence, however, described the procedure as "long-planned" as he opened a speech in Washington on Monday night.


U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday that his wife, Melania, is "doing really well" as she is recovering from a medical procedure to treat a kidney condition. The President spoke with his wife that morning and visited her that evening for over an hour.

The White House said the procedure was "successful" but withheld details of the first lady's condition, citing her privacy. She also attended a ceremony for Military Mothers and Spouses in the White House East Room on May 11.

"The treatment of choice" is to cut off the blood supply so the growth shrinks, added Dr. Lambros Stamatakis of MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

"I want to start by saying that Melania is in the hospital doing really well", Trump said during the National Peace Officers' Memorial Service. They have a 12-year-old son named Barron. But both made a point of displaying affection during last week's Rose Garden event where she announced the "Be Best" initiative.
