Melania Trump wears 'I really don't care' jacket before visiting migrant kids

First Lady Melania Trump has sparked outrage over the choice of a jacket she wore as she boarded a flight to a facility housing migrant children separated from their parents.

She visited a one-storey red brick building, which houses 55 children between the ages of 12 and 17.

"First lady Melania Trump has arrived in Texas to take part in briefings and tours at a nonprofit social services center for children who have entered the United States illegally and a customs and border patrol processing center", her office said in a statement.

This is now a very sensitive topic to many Americans and the fact that Melania wore this jacket to meet with those immigrant children who have been separated from their parents, due to Donald Trump's policies, is very offensive.

It was Trump's idea to go to the border to see firsthand how migrant children are being treated, her husband said. "The executive order certainly is helping pave the way a little bit, but there's still a lot to be done".

Others compared the event to the 2014 incident when then-President Barack Obama was bashed for wearing a tan suit, or the time in 2009 when conservatives criticized Michelle Obama for wearing a dress than exposed her bare arms.

Melania Trump was reportedly seen wearing an army-style jacket with the phrase "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" on the back while boarding and departing a plane at Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland, on Thursday.

'Of course not. It's just a jacket, ' Grisham said when asked if the message was directed at the media, which has relentlessly attacked Mrs. Trump.

However, Melania was not wearing the jacket when she landed in McAllen, Texas.

In fact, the first lady's sartorial choices have been fodder for several episodes of Twitter mocking, including the $51,000 Dolce & Gabbana jacket she wore in Italy previous year.

Melania Trump sparked controversy as she donned the jacket saying: "I really don't care, do u" (sic).

She changed into sneakers before landing in Texas, but people still questioned her decision. This is what First Ladies often do.
