During her visit, Melania asked what could be done to help facilitate the quick reunification of the migrant families.
'One interesting note here, even after this controversy erupted.Melania Trump put the jacket back on, just in time for the cameras, when she returned to Washington DC'.
But Wildfang, a queer-owned clothing company headquartered in Portland, Ore., made a decision to mobilize around the moment, creating a series of "I Really Care, Don't U?" merchandise. It wasn't for the gesture though, but rather because of a military-style jacket with the words "I really don't care, do u?" written on the back in graffiti-style lettering.
She accompanied the touching message with a photo of her, wearing a different, cream jacket, meeting with children.
"Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!"
Melania Trump's Jacket Appears to Mock The Immigrant Children She Visited
When asked what message the first lady's jacket intends to send, spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said: "It's a jacket ". The Trump administration has been enforcing a "zero tolerance" policy on illegal border crossers since early May.
The president's tweet came after commentators in the press were speculating Melania was really trolling him.
White House spokesperson Stephanie Grisham said there was nothing symbolic about the jacket.
"It's a jacket, There was no hidden message".
It's the back, where "I really don't care, do u?" was placed by the global mass market brand Zara, that has become social media's playground, from the compassionate to the downright raunchy.
Her spokesman claimed that the jacket had not been meant to convey a statement, and urged journalists not to read anything into it. "And, I'm going to guess this is one message she did not steal from Michelle Obama". But there is already evidence that his department and the Department of Homeland Security have not kept proper track of the children and parents.
The first lady's surprise visit came the morning after President Donald Trump signed an executive order halting the practice of separating families that entered the USA illegally. "So we sprung our Rapid Response unit into action, called our friends at United We Dream, and are presenting here, a better message: We Care".
