First lady’s ‘I don’t care’ jacket causes a stir; Trump tweets response

First lady Melania Trump wore a green military jacket that says "I really don't care, do u?" on her surprise visit to Texas to visit immigrant children on Thursday.

When asked what message the first lady's jacket meant to send, spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said: "It's a jacket".

The first lady was pictured wearing the jacket as she boarded a flight to the border at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.

Her spokeswoman told Business Insider that "there was no hidden message". "There's no message. I hope we can talk about her important visit with children today rather than her wardrobe choice".

The first lady planned to visit two facilities, both in McAllen, Texas: The Ursula Border Patrol Processing Center, a Customs and Border Patrol intake center, and Upbring New Hope Children's Shelter, which is a Health and Human Services Department grantee facility housing about 60 children.

On Wednesday, the president signed an executive order created to end the family-separation policy.

Democrats, along with much of the media, have been portraying the President, and consequently the First Lady, as not caring about these children, many of whom have been torn out of their parents' arms, kicking and screaming.

"She's heard the recordings".

When contacted for comment, spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said in an email: "It's a jacket". "She was concerned about it".
