First lady visits migrant children at Texas detention center

Melania Trump wears jacket saying 'I really don't care' before visit with migrant kids

Side by side The First lady traveled with Alex Azar Secretary of Health and Human Services for the trip which was also to a border processing center

The First Lady wore it while departing Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland for McAllen, Texas, where she arrived for a visit to an immigrant children's detention center.

A White House insider said that the president is angry that the first lady made a decision to humiliate him.

While everyone was speculating whether Melania Trump was trying to send a message by wearing a provocative Zara jacket when departing for a trip to the border, she doubled-down by wearing it on her return trip too.

The jacked caused a commotion on social media, which Trump responded to by tweet.

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

For a first lady as quiet as Trump, her fashion is analyzed thoroughly.

"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".

Trump wore the jacket as she boarded a flight en route to visit a group of migrant children in Texas.

The conflicting statements have done little to quell the outrage over the jacket's message, with critics calling it tone-deaf and offensive in light of the highly divisive family separation policy unfolding at the Texas-Mexico border.

Showing the warm welcome she received, one photo posted by the 48-year-old shows her shaking hands with a man in front of a painting of the United States flag, with "Welcome!"

The photos show the children all smiles while meeting Melania, who wore tight white jeans and white trainers with the changed jacket.

The Trump administration has been enforcing a "zero tolerance" policy on illegal border crossers since early May. "After today's important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn't going to choose to focus on her wardrobe", she said. "She wants to see what's real", the first lady's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told CNN.

President Trump appeared to take his battle with the news media to a new level on Thursday, apparently using the First Lady's much-covered visit with detained immigrant children in a Texas border town as an opportunity to spell out his grievances with the press.

Left-leaning criticism isn't necessarily a concern for the first lady. 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.
