Trump says if the first lady ever gets a facelift, he'll 'let you know'

Should first lady Melania Trump ever elect to go under the knife for plastic surgery, fear not — President Trump will fill the American people in on all the ins and outs of the procedure.

Trump was in South Carolina Monday night for a rally in support of Gov. Henry McMaster (R), but he spent a good chunk of time focusing on his wife's health. Last month, the White House said Melania Trump underwent surgery for a benign kidney condition, and she wasn't seen in public for several weeks. Trump said she's "fine," and people had "all kinds of projections. They said she got a facelift. No. I would let you know. They couldn't hide that one for long." Just a few moments later, Trump said the first lady is "private. She doesn't want to talk about things."

It's not the first time Trump has talked about his wife not having a facelift; earlier this month, he tweeted a blanket denial, saying she was not near death, did not have plastic surgery, was not abused, and did not leave him and the White House for New York or Virginia.
