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.

Trump later tweeted while he was on his way to the hospital at 5pm on Monday, however it appears he didn't have the most hectic of days before jumping on Marine One.

"This evening the President visited the first lady at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center".

When Donald Trump made a delayed dash to his wife's hospital bed yesterday following reports she'd undergone surgery without him, many could have put it down to the POTUS' busy schedule.

President Trump spoke with his wife before the procedure and talked to the doctor after it was completed.

The Monday statement from the office of the first lady that revealed her treatment called the procedure successful and without complication. They have a 12-year-old son named Barron.

They are not common but tend to occur in middle-aged women and can cause problematic bleeding if they become large enough, said Dr Keith Kowalczyk of MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. Doctors do that with an embolization, meaning a catheter is snaked into the blood vessels of the kidney to find the right one and block it.

Trump tweeted Tuesday that "our great First Lady is doing really well". Mrs. Trump is 48. Trump also denies the allegations from Karen McDougal.

Last week, Trump gave a speech in the Rose Garden to announce a new campaign that she's calling "Be Best".
