Last public appearance 

Online, people want to know why Mrs. Trump has taken an unannounced leave of absence especially as the year is just beginning.

President Trump has been quite active while the government is on a shutdown - now the longest in U.S. history - but the last known public appearance Melania made was at the annual New Year's Eve party thrown by the Trumps in Mar-A-Lago.

Concerned reactions

On January 13, Melania made a public gesture when she tweeted a photo of the White House alongside three snow emojis after a snowstorm hit Washington.

But last year, Melania stayed out of sight until January 30 when she showed up for the State of the Union address. In the middle of 2018, she also disappeared for weeks and underwent a procedure for kidney problems.
