The art of Melania's green jacket — Virginia Postrel

Inexplicably, the ex-model chose to wear a military-inspired jacket with the phrase "I really don't care, do u?" scrawled across the back en route to her destination.

Donald Trump, however, tweeted that his wife's jacket was indeed meant to send a message, but not about the immigrant children. First lady Melania Trump's controversial jacket choice while visiting migrant children in Texas caught the attention of a feminist brand.

First lady Melania Trump arrived in McAllen, Texas on Thursday to visit the border area amid the administration's crisis over the separation of families, her office said.

She didn't wear the jacket when touring the detention shelter, but put it back on when she got off the return flight to Washington D.C., and kept it on as she walked into The Oval Office where she was seen with Kellyanne Conway and Mercedes Schlapp.

Trump's spokeswoman denied that the jacket had any special significance.

'Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!' Melania certainly doesn't seem to feel obligated to fulfill the traditional role of a first lady, which is first and foremost to make her husband look good.

On Wednesday, the president signed an executive order created to end the family-separation policy.

"Grisham followed up her statement with a tweet that reinforced what the East Wing said was an non-issue: "#ItsJustAJacket".

Despite severe criticism online, Melania's spokesman Stephanie Grisham insisted there was no hidden message behind the jacket. She also met with shelter employees and government officials, who she praised for doing "heroic work".

Emma McIlroy, chief executive of the Wildfang clothing company told the Thomson Reuters Foundation that the new jackets were designed and ready for sale the same day as the visit of Melania to Texas.

The First Lady made it too easy. She inquired about the children's physical and mental care. Melania said she was there to help reunite children with their families. One legal observer, who was in the courtroom, says that's interesting because under the "zero tolerance" policy, every adult who crosses the border illegally is supposed to be prosecuted.

Melania Trump was welcomed by staff at the Upbring New Hope Children's Center as she made an unannounced visit Thursday to the facility that houses 58 unaccompanied migrant children.
