It’s been more than 2 weeks since Melania Trump underwent a successful kidney surgery, but she has been completely out of spotlight ever since. This unusually long disappearance made many people worry about the First Lady’s health status.

Twitter users made numerous guesses and even came up with conspiracy theories to explain Melania’s absence.

 Some people are really concerned due to the Donald Trump’s past and sexual misconduct allegations.
