Melania Trump doubles-down with "I really don't care" jacket

"DO U?" on her way to the U.S. -Mexico border to meet the immigrant children separated from their parents and detained in a Texas shelter.

The green, hooded military jacket from Zara, which retails for £29 ($56) had the words written graffiti-style on the back.

Does the jacket actually hold a hidden meaning? "After today's important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn't going to focus on her wardrobe". As the images of Melania Trump's "I Really Don't Care" jacket continued to go viral, the criticism on both Donald and Melania Trump continued to mount.

Melania was also criticized for a meeting with the queen of Spain, during which she said they discussed "ways to positively impact children", which came amid the height of the controversy surrounding the child separation policy. Last summer she wore cropped trousers, a green bomber jacket, and needle-thin heels as she exited the White House for Air Force One for a flight to Houston to view the damage from Hurricane Harvey. The jacket belongs to the Zara's spring-summer 2016 season and is no longer for sale by the company, though a few of the jackets popped up online for resale at a moderate profit for sellers.

He continued: "To try and humanize these child detention centers, the administration sent their most high-profile detainee: Melania Trump".

The "Outnumbered" panel reacted Friday to the media outcry, with Abby Huntsman questioning why Mrs. Trump wore the jacket in the first place after striking a compassionate note by visiting the detention center. But it wasn't long before the first lady's controversial jacket threatened to overshadow the entire goodwill junket to the border.

Then there's the most obvious and widespread interpretation: that it was a message to migrant families and people who support their plight.

"We all know they are here without their families and I want to thank you for your hard work, your compassion, and your kindness you are giving to them in these difficult times", Trump told the staff members.

Teodoro said he turned to the Statue of Liberty "to be that first lady and wear America's true values".

On The Daily Show, Trevor Noah also made reference to Melania's much-criticized choice of jacket. It's not the first time the first lady's fashion choices have caused a stir.
