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.

The president started his day by tweeting an update on the first lady early Tuesday morning, saying she would be leaving the hospital in "2 or 3 days".

The Slovenia-born former model underwent an embolization procedure, said her communications director Stephanie Grisham.

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

The White House has not offered any additional information about her condition, citing her privacy.

They're 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.

Embolization is most frequently used to cut off the flow of blood to a tumor or growth. 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 said the first lady is "doing really well" and that he expected her back at the White House before the end of the week.

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.

The Trumps and their marriage have been under scrutiny in recent months after revelations that a porn actress was paid $130,000 in hush money to keep quiet about claims she had sex with Trump in 2006.

The first lady lived full time in NY during the administration's opening months so Barron would not have to change schools midyear.
