WASHINGTON, D.C. (ABC NEWS)-  First lady Melania Trump made her first public appearance since surgery for a kidney ailment in mid-May at a White House event Monday evening honoring service members killed in action.

Trump, wearing a black dress, sat in the front row at Monday’s Gold Star Families for Peace reception at the White House, taking the time to shake hands with families, according to a Gold Star daughter at the event.

Jena Greene, a Gold Star daughter, tweeted the president told the room, “Melania had a little problem a couple weeks ago but she wouldn’t miss this for anything.”

Greene told ABC News she was at the event to honor her dad, Lt. Col David Greene, a Marine Corps Helicopter Pilot who was killed in Iraq in 2004. Greene is a reporter for the Daily Caller.

 

Gold Star Families for Peace is an organization that provides support for fellow members who have lost family members in the Iraq War. One of their stated goals is also to bring an end to the war.

 

Greene tweeted that the president joked about the media’s speculation about the first lady’s absence. She had emergency surgery, what was described as embolization procedure involving her kidney, on May 14 at Walter Reed Medical Center.

 

“He laughed off rumors of them breaking up, saying it wasn’t happening. “Isn’t that right honey?” Greene tweeted.
