Melania Trump says she feels "great" after a kidney procedure and expects to return to the White House before long. Her husband is visiting her in the hospital for the third straight day.

The first lady's comments on Twitter on Wednesday were her first since she was hospitalized for an embolization on Monday. She tweeted "a sincere thank you to Walter Reed Medical Unit" and to her well-wishers. Mrs. Trump added, "I am feeling great & look forward to getting back home."

President Donald Trump is visiting his 48-year-old wife for the third day in a row. The 72-year-old president joked during a visit to the Capitol on Wednesday that the first lady should be the one visiting him in the hospital, not the other way around.

    And we taxpayers also feel great that we could help a poor and unfortunate woman, who managed to come here and work illegally and then marry up into wealth. Be sure to let others know how good your government healthcare was. You're welcome.

    That is good. If only the majority of the rest of Americans could say the same under Trump.
