Jacket Melania trump has sparked new outrage

After Donald lifted an order to separate migrant children from their parents at the US/Mexico border in Texas, his wife Melania was spotted boarding a plane to go and visit the children who were affected.

First lady Melania Trump's fashion choice for her visit to the Mexican border - a jacket with the words "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" - blew up Twitter yesterday with accusations of cold-heartedness amid the illegal immigrant family separation controversy. The facility, operated by Lutheran Social Services of the South and contracted by the Department of Health and Human Services, is a former nursing home-turned-shelter that now houses almost 60 children between the ages of 12 and 17.

It was a move reminiscent of her decision past year to wear stilettos to a hurricane relief zone, which was also the subject of much deliberation about her fashion decisions. He wrote: "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" written on the back of Melania's jacket, refers to the Fake News Media.

First Lady Melania Trump walks from her plane to her motorcade at Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, wearing a jacket with the phrase, "I Really Don't Care". "It's a jacket. There was no hidden message". But over the course of the evening, others, including celebrities and designers took the time to create their own pieces of clothing with the slogan "I care", including actress Busy Phillips and fashion brands Lingua Franca and Wildfang.

When she arrived in McAllen, Texas, the first lady had changed out of the controversial garment into a cream button-up safari-style jacket.

Mrs. Trump, whose focus is on children, may have helped encourage her husband to act. "It really was an unbelievable act of silent protest on Melania's behalf to piss him off after his immigration separation policy made a mockery of her 'Be Best" campaign".

Her spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham, told CBS News in a statement that the writing on Trump's jacket was not meant to send a message.

But Wildfang, a queer-owned clothing company headquartered in Portland, Ore., chose to mobilize around the moment, creating a series of "I Really Care, Don't U?" merchandise.
