Trump administration officials says Melania Trump is in the hospital recovering from an operation to treat a non-cancerous kidney condition.

The first lady's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, said the treatment Monday morning was successful.

Grisham said Trump is at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, just outside Washington, D.C. She said the first lady would likely remain there for the rest of the week.

Last week, Trump made news when she launched her program “Be Best” to help children be their best selves.
