He arrived by helicopter at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center outside Washington on Tuesday afternoon and stayed for about 90 minutes before returning to the White House.

Reporting on Monday, the White House said that the First Lady had been sent to the hospital to be treated for a benign kidney condition, according to CBS News on Monday. She's watching us right now.

Trump is the first U.S. First Lady to undergo a serious medical procedure while in the White House since Nancy Reagan underwent a mastectomy in 1987, CNN reported.

Two urologists who have no personal knowledge of Mrs. Trump's condition said the most likely explanation for the procedure is a kind of noncancerous kidney tumor called an angiomyolipoma. The President spoke with his wife that morning and visited her that evening for over an hour. Grisham declined to provide additional information or answer questions about the procedure, saying that the first lady is entitled to privacy. Trump also joked that his 48-year-old wife should be the one visiting him in the hospital and not the other way around, a senator said.

Trump's visit was not on the official White House schedule, but he made time for his wife as she recovers from a minor surgery on her kidney. Trump has acknowledged reimbursing his lawyer for the payment to porn star Stormy Daniels but denies her allegations.
