Melania Trump has said she feels "great" after a kidney procedure and expects to return to the White House before long.

Her husband, President Donald Trump, visited her in the hospital for the third straight day.

The first lady's comments on Twitter on Wednesday were her first since she was taken to hospital for an embolisation 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."

Mr Trump visited 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.
