Also, President Donald Trump chose to spend time with his recovering wife instead of appearing as a guest of honor at Israel’s 70th anniversary of independence celebration in Washington, DC, on Monday night.
Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer told the event’s crowd of hundreds at the Andrew Mellon Auditorium that Trump wanted to be at the event, but chose to attend to the first lady, who had undergone a planned medical procedure that day.
Vice President Mike Pence later identified the first lady’s treatment as a “long-planned” medical procedure and the reason that Trump had asked Pence to stand in for him at the event.

According to NBC, Trump spoke to Melania just before her surgery began, spoke to her doctor afterward and will visit her at Walter Reed National Medical Center later today.
Mrs. Trump was taken to Walter Reed military medical facility on Monday morning to undergo an embolization procedure to treat a benign kidney condition. “The procedure was successful and there were no complications,” according to a statement from the first lady’s office. She is expected to remain at the facility for the remainder of the week. “The First Lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere,” the statement concluded.
Prayers for Melania and President Trump. Time to put all politics aside and wish the First Lady a full and quick recovery. Anything kidney-related can be serious stuff.
I speak for many Americans when I say that Melania is the most magnificent First Lady of all time! Praying for a speedy recovery and total healing.
