Melania Trump is set to make her first public appearance in nearly a month on Monday, as she joins her husband President Donald Trump in hosting a White House event for gold star families.

Mrs Trump made her worldwide debut as first lady at last year's G7 summit in Italy, and went on to attend the G20 in Germany.

They say Melania Trump has not been seen publicly since May 10 and wonder if it's because she's no longer willing to play the pretty spouse role on the president's arm in the wake of revelations about his payoffs to women with whom he allegedly had affairs since marrying Melania.

After almost a month out of the public eye, Melania Trump is expected to make an appearance this evening at a White House event to honor Gold Star military families.

Grisham said the Gold Star families' event is important to Mrs. Trump and has been on her calendar for some time.

While Monday's event was closed to press, a blurry video which appears to show Melania Trump, but has not been verified, was posted on social media by Jena Greene, a reporter at the Daily Caller.

"I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing", she tweeted on Wednesday, assuring she was "here at the @WhiteHouse w my family, feeling great, & working hard".

Holtby didn't have time to slide to his right, and as Tuch fired, the goaltender extended himself as far as he could. With 1:59 remaining of a one-goal game, the Golden Knights dumped the puck into the offensive zone and gave chase.

It's the second year the Trumps have opened the White House to Gold Star families.

Despite the operation's routine nature, Melania remained there for five days, returning to the White House on May 19.

This did little to quell the conspiracy theories; indeed it only fueled the idea that the first lady had died or disappeared and someone else was writing her tweets for her. Especially after she missed a family trip to Camp David over the weekend that even Tiffany Trump, the least-seen daughter, attended.

"She looked handsome", said retired Sgt. 1st Class Diana Pike.

It's still unclear when the first lady will make an appearance in public. "I think there are Democrats, Republicans, fans - there are lots of people just wondering where is the first lady of the United States", Bennett said.

A person inside the room told CNN's Jeff Zeleny that the President made a lighthearted joke about the first lady's extended absence from public view, saying the media was asking: "Where's Melania?"
