The White House has announced that first lady Melania Trump underwent a procedure Monday morning at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to treat a kidney condition.
President Donald Trump tweeted late Monday afternoon that he was headed to visit her at the hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, but said nothing when reporters shouted questions as he left the White House.
Trump tweeted that his wife “is in good spirits. Thank you to all the well-wishers!”
Mrs. Trump, 48, had what is being called an “embolization procedure” to treat what the White House said is a “benign kidney condition,” according to a release from the first lady’s communications director Stephanie Grisham.
