President Donald Trump also weighed in.

"There was no hidden message". Let us know on Twitter. On Wednesday, Trump made a rare retreat, signing an executive order that he said would end family separations as Congress prepared to consider legislation that would force a halt to the policy.

Mrs Trump's husband credited her and his daughter Ivanka for persuading him to end the separation of children from parents who had entered the U.S. illegally.

However, he made a U-turn yesterday under mounting pressure and when signing the order, Trump said he did it because he "didn't like the sight or the feeling of families being separated". Thank you to @SecAzar @HHSGOV for traveling w me today & the care you are giving these children in such a hard time. Or perhaps the jacket was a larger statement about their marriage.

She visited a schoolroom at Upbring and chatted with about 20 young girls and boys who had school folders on their desks. "It's a jacket", she said in an email asking what the first lady's choice meant. Those may have been subtle jabs at her spouse. And it's one that many won't soon forget.

"Be kind and nice to other, OK?" she told kids in one classroom.

"She wanted to send a message". In fairness, the fact that she was traveling to Texas in the first place suggests this theory might be a bit far-fetched.

This Republican, who is supportive of Trump, but skeptical of some of what they consider to be the administration's ham-handedness, says there was an urgent meeting among communications staff about how to fix this after it was becoming a story. She co-signed Trump's birther theories, she co-signed her husband's comments about sexual assault, and she has reaped the benefits of her husband's sexist and racist policies for years. Instead, Trump's mission has been to demonstrate - through her fashion or her disappearance from the public eye - that she refuses to do what is expected of her. In May, Trump unveiled her "Be Best" platform, which outlined three predominant avenues of focus: health and well being; kindness and safety online; and highlighting the effects of the opioid crisis on children and families. She has a job to do as the wife of the president and that's where she'll focus her attention.
