Melania Trump Wears 'I Really Don't Care' Jacket to Visit Immigrants

US First Lady Melania Trump boards a flight at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland on June 21, 2018 wearing a jacket that reads: "I really don't care".

Melania Trump's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, was asked to about the message on the clothing.

"I hope the media isn't going to choose to focus on her wardrobe".

That practice has resulted in the separations of thousands of children and families.

Students welcomed her with a large paper American flag taped to a wall that they'd signed.

President Trump had his own theory Thursday evening.

The first lady stepped on her high-profile moment by wearing an "I REALLY DON'T CARE" jacket on her way to a child detention center.

However the fate of hundreds of undocumented children taken from parents remains unclear.

"Of the 2,000, a lot of the people, well, they came in with their children".

On Twitter, Grisham continued to lament that the brushfire caused by the jacket had stepped on her message.

After staying quiet as global outcry grew over the Trump administration's family separation policy, Ivanka Trump on Thursday also called on families to be "swiftly" reunited.

Her husband, President Barack Obama, was the talk of a 24-hour news cycle when he donned a tan suit in 2014 for a media briefing.

"Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!" he said.

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.

President Donald Trump first announced the trip by his wife, who was touring a non-profit social services center for migrant children, before heading to a customs and border patrol processing center, according to a statement from her office.

The first lady's demonstration of concern for the people affected by U.S. immigration enforcement draws a contrast - whether deliberate or not - with her husband, who often speaks derisively of those who enter the country illegally and regularly portrays them as threats to public safety. While many of them are unaccompanied minors, six were reportedly separated from their parents at the border. The other children were placed there after they crossed into the US alone. The first lady most likely has a full understanding of the spotlight she is under, with coverage of her disappearance from the public eye earlier this year and of her fashion choices.

"And so we are at another possible First Lady moment".

Her staff did not announce the Texas trip in advance and required news organisations travelling with her to agree not to publish any information until she arrived. She called on Congress to work together on immigration legislation that would benefit the children.
