First Lady Melania Trump was treated on Monday at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for a benign kidney condition.
The First Lady’s Office issued the following statement:
“This morning, First Lady Melania Trump underwent an embolization procedure to treat a benign kidney condition. The procedure was successful and there were no complications. Mrs. Trump is at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and will likely remain there for the duration of the week. The First Lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere.”
Breitbart News asked the first lady’s Communications Director Stephanie Grisham to confirm reports that “President Trump spoke with his wife this morning and that the President is going to Walter Reed medical center to visit her shortly.” She did, replying “yes.”
Heading over to Walter Reed Medical Center to see our great First Lady, Melania. Successful procedure, she is in good spirits. Thank you to all of the well-wishers!
