The first lady’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham, has asked that the American public respect Mrs. Trump’s “personal privacy” as she recovers from the procedure.
Asked why the routine procedure would require such a long hospital stay, the first lady’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham, told CNN on Tuesday, “I am not going to expand beyond the statement I put out. The first lady is in good spirits and she is resting. There are HIPAA laws to consider, but she also deserves personal privacy.”
