Melania Trump Sets Off To Visit Detained Kids Wearing Bizarre Coat

Adjust Comment Print

President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday titled "Affording Congress an Opportunity to Address Family Separation", meant to end the practice of separating children from their parents at the USA border, while maintaining the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" policy regarding illegal entry into the United States. "The images struck her, as a mother, as a human being".

The First Lady appears to have made quite the statement while making her way to visit immigrant children being detained at the Texas border in a coat with the words 'I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?' across the back. There was no hidden message.

'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'.

In a tweet Wednesday afternoon, Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles, vice president of the US bishops' conference, said: "I welcome the president's executive order ending the cruel family-separation policy".

Asked about the military-style jacket with large white brush-style lettering - apparently sold for $39 at Zara, according to the Daily Mail which first spotted the odd choice of outfit - the first lady's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said "there was no hidden message".

She has shown that she won't bow to public pressure or expectations about how she should comport herself as first lady.

Mrs. Trump had changed into a pale yellow jacket before arriving in McAllen and wore that during the more than hour-long visit to the center, but donned the green jacket once again as she returned to the White House.

She told children to "be kind and nice to each other" as she left another classroom.

In a cabinet meeting Thursday, President Donald Trump said that he wanted to reunite the kids with their parents, but offered no concrete details on the administration's plan.

"This was 100 percent her idea".

At the facility the first lady talked with staff about how the children were being treated and asked how she could help.

"Slogan T-shirts have often been a vehicle for communication, and they've come back in vogue in the a year ago or two with the political upheaval in many countries, including our own", said Wendy Liebmann, chief executive of consulting firm WSL Strategic Retail.

It's not the first time the first lady's fashion choices have caused a stir. A federal prosecutor said "there was no prosecution sought" in light of Trump's executive order ending the practice of separating families. This is what First Ladies often do. The official refused to be identified discussing Trump's private conversations with his wife.
