What Melania Trump’s ‘I Don’t Care’ jacket really told us

What Melania Trump’s ‘I Don’t Care’ jacket really told us

Rep. Dina Titus, a Nevada Democrat, taped a hand-drawn sign to her back reading "I care" and tweeted out a photo of herself next to one of Mrs. Trump boarding Thursday's plane to Texas with a personalized message: "Hey #FLOTUS, try this on for size".

Since her husband took office, Melania Trump's wardrobe has served as her mood ring.

A year after moving into the White House with her young son to rejoin her husband, Melania Trump - this most enigmatic of presidential wives - demonstrated once more this week she is anything but the typical U.S. first lady.

A bonus: The line additionally supports families at the border. After initially defending the situation and then blaming it on his predecessor, he later said he will move to end the policy.

By the time Mrs Trump met with staff and children at the Upbring New Hope Children's Center, the jacket was nowhere to be seen.

The president chimed in after the initial uproar, claiming that his wife wore the jacket to taunt the "fake news media". Stopping short of criticising her husband's policies, she called for bipartisan immigration reform to fix the issue.

Responding to the outcry over the curious fashion choice, her spokesperson said there was "no hidden message" behind the jacket. During a 1996 visit to Japan, first lady Hillary Clinton "baffled" her host nation by wearing several all-black ensembles.

"I'm here to learn about your facility, in which I know you house children on a long-term basis", Trump said during her visit.

Wildfang was able to get their "I really care, don't u?" coat into production and online nearly immediately and customers went "bananas".

'Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!'

While lawmakers were aghast that the US President virtually short-circuited any potential immigration bill, Trump has virtually begun a election campaign for both the 2018 mid-term election and the 2020 Presidential election, with frequent forays to the conservative heartland for campaign style "Make America Great Again" rallies where he is greeted by adoring crowds unquestioningly lapping up every word he says.

This is not the first time Melania is facing the ire of social media over her couture choice.

"It's a jacket. There was no hidden message", hit back spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham.

As of Friday morning, Wildfang tweeted that they had raised $15,000 thus far for RAICES, but they would like to reach $50,000. But it wasn't long before the first lady's controversial jacket threatened to overshadow the entire goodwill junket to the border. Melania getting on the plane to visit the shelters, at her own request, is her answering "Yes, I do care, and I'm showing you with this visit to a shelter you wouldn't make".
