Ron Dermer, Israel's ambassador to the United States, told the packed event at the Andrew Mellon Auditorium in D.C. that the President had wanted to attend, but chose to be with his wife instead. Trump, 72, joked during a visit to the Capitol on Wednesday that the first lady should be the one visiting him in the hospital, not the other way around.
Wednesday, First Lady Melania Trump said she is feeling "great" and on the mend after undergoing surgery earlier this week.
The publish have been the primary girl's first public feedback since she was hospitalized Monday for an embolization.
But with Melanie's spokesperson confirming the first lady was recovering well after having surgery to treat a benign kidney condition at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Trump's schedule for the day has been revealed.
In fact, there were a total of three things on his schedule that morning, one of them being a one-hour lunch with Vice President Mike Pence.
President Trump is visiting his 48-year-old wife for the third day in a row.
