He tweeted, "Not that this will deter the conspiracy theorists, but I saw the First Lady walking with her aides in the West Wing yesterday afternoon".

Mrs. Trump has not appeared in public since the wee hours of May 10, when she accompanied the president to a military base in Maryland to welcome home three Americans who had been released from detention in North Korea.

Trump had surgery to treat what the White House called a "benign kidney condition", which usually requires only a few days of recuperation. Last Friday morning, a reporter shouted a question to the president about a his wife's whereabouts as he prepared to board Marine One to attend the Naval Academy commencement.

A week after the first lady announced "Be Best", she was in the hospital.

Taking his turn in the batting cage and swinging a golf club, President Donald Trump joined a group of famous athletes for a field day with kids at the White House on Wednesday as he kicked off an effort to increase youth participation in sports. "She seems to be recovering well", he said, though he offered no further details. "How does 1500 children go missing, and how is it no one has seen the First Lady of the United States in over 3 weeks?" asked tweeter Christopher Bouzy.

The first lady tweeted Wednesday that she's "working hard" and "feeling great".

But when reporters turned to look at the window he indicated, there was no sign of the first lady.

However, in the grand scope of Trump's first lady schedule, a 20-day break, while long, isn't entirely out of the realm of possibility.

Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter and senior adviser, said that the Aspen Institute found that 37 percent of children played team sports on a regular basis in 2016, down from almost 45 percent in 2008.
