Melania Trump's 'I Really Don't Care' Jacket Did Not Go Over Well

She went straight to the Oval Office to brief the president, who later tweeted that the jacket's message referred to her feelings about the "Fake News Media".

Her visit to the centre, which houses 55 kids, comes after the POTUS signed an executive order stopping family separation following a massive backlash from celebrities, the media, members of the public and even his own wife by the sounds of things.

According to a pool report, Trump's communications director Stephanie Grisham told a reporter via email: "It's a jacket. There's no message. I hope we can talk about her important visit with children today rather than her wardrobe choice".

The jacket first appeared only upon her departure - by the time Trump arrived in McAllen, Texas, the olive drab jacket, a $39 Zara design, was gone, and she walked into the housing facility clad in a cream military-style jacket with white jeans and sneakers.

Grisham was referencing Melania Trump's decision to wear stiletto heels this past August when she and her husband traveled to Houston in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

Does the jacket actually hold a hidden meaning? But maybe not, because Trump's next tweet echoed the same policy he's always professed: "We have to maintain strong borders or we will no longer have a country that we can be proud of - and if we show any weakness, millions of people will journey into our country". Federal agencies are working to set up a centralized family-reunification center in Port Isabel, Texas, the official said, and it isn't clear how numerous 500 children are still being detained with their families. She called on Congress to work together on immigration legislation that would benefit the children. "It's sad that we have an active and ongoing natural disaster in Texas, and people are anxious about her shoes", Grisham said. "First Lady" written in black marker across the red and white bars, Mrs. Trump also signed the flag, which the children gave to her.

The response to Trump's "I really don't care, do u?" jacket was swift. "She feels the executive order yesterday paved the way forward but there is still more to be done and she wants to lend her support".

Amnesty International declared it was "shook by the blatant lack of empathy" and offered to send the First Lady a "This is What a Human Rights Defender Looks Like" T-shirt to wear instead.

The first lady has been uncharacteristically vocal about her feelings on this policy.
