A spokeswoman for Melania Trump says there is no message in the first lady's choice of jacket.

Melania Trump's wardrobe choice landed her husband in hot waters when she wore an insensitive jacket while boarding an Air Force plane to visit migrant children at the Texas-Mexico border on Thursday.

Disembarking from a plane en-route to the facility in Texas, the USA first lady wore a khaki green jacket with "I really don't care, do u?" written on the back. It's a ZARA jacket that retails for about $40. "She was going to the border, where her husband had ripped families apart and wearing a jacket that said 'I don't care.' ...she does not deserve latitude on this because she doubled-down after questions were asked".

Later Thursday, the president weighed in on the meaning of his wife's message jacket.

A person familiar with the situation who did not want to be identified said he could clearly see lettering on the front of Trump's jacket that matches that of the Zara jacket seen in the blogger's images.

President Trump said the first lady and daughter Ivanka played a big role in his decision to end the practice of separating migrant children from their parents. "(Much like her high heels last year)".

"Most of the children here have escaped some pretty horrific situations where they've been asked to join gangs, have said no to joining gangs but are anxious about their own lives". During her visit to the Upbring New Hope Children's Center in McAllen, Texas, Melania Trump expressed her gratitude for officials and carers on the frontlines of the crisis.

He did not elaborate on which news report the First Lady was objecting to. "Do you?" on the back while traveling to visit children in a detention center.

The goal of the visit was "to take part in briefings and tours at a nonprofit social services centre for children who have entered the United States illegally", according to a statement.

Trump said she wanted to learn more about how these children can be reunited with their parents "as quickly as possible". "Children at New Hope are surrounded by professional staff 24/7, which encourages their personal and academic development and empowers them with skills and resources to take the next steps toward productive lives once their legal cases are resolved".

De La Cerda told Trump the children are given recreational activities, spiritual care and down time.

At one of the 2016 presidential debates, she showed up in a bright pink silk blouse with a large bow at the neck, long known as a "pussy bow blouse".

The first lady's visit comes as President Donald Trump's administration has separated members of families that cross United States borders illegally, sending thousands of children to holding camps around the country.
