First Lady Melania Trump's jacket sparks controversy Photogallery

Sports Are Awesome 'Earthquake' Detected in Mexico City After World Cup Goal First Lady Pays Surprise Visit to Migrant Children at Texas Detention Shelter

Many liberal USA media in a storm of sarcasm suggested that in this way Trump's wife wanted to demonstrate that she was not really interested in the problems of migrants.

Democratic members spent much of the last two weeks accusing Trump and his top homeland security aides of using the migrant children as a way to secure full funding for his proposed U.S. -Mexico border wall. Her stylist also said he had never seen the jacket before, so there's that.

"'Melania Trump" wore jacket with "I really don't care' on back".

There are exceptions to this rule though, and Melania Trump's decision to wear a hooded green army jacket with white lettering on the back that reads "I REALLY DON'T CARE DO U?".

Melania Trump's communications director, Stephanie Grisham also attacked media for focusing more on wardrobe selection but not her efforts to help marginalized children.

Post her visit to Texas immigration centre, Melania tweeted, "Today's visit to #Texas to spend time with children & thank the many hardworking individuals helping to care for them was very meaningful". On Wednesday, U.S. President Donald Trump signed an order ending the separations and keeping families together while in custody.

In a subsequent tweet, Grisham said the visit impacted the first lady "greatly". Six of them were separated from their parents upon crossing the border, authorities told reporters.

After giving birth, Ardern will take a six-week maternal leave, during which her deputy Peters steps in as Acting Prime Minister . Asked earlier this month how the couple had been faring in their quest to choose a baby name , Ms Ardern responded: "Terribly".

The trip is the first lady's first high-profile public appearance since she underwent surgery for a kidney condition on May 14.

Ms Trump donned the jacket while boarding a plane bound for McAllen, Texas, where she visited a shelter for immigrant children - some of whom were separated from their parents under the Trump administration's zero tolerance immigration policy.

Others compared the event to the 2014 incident when then-President Barack Obama was bashed for wearing a tan suit, or the time in 2009 when conservatives criticized Michelle Obama for wearing a dress than exposed her bare arms.

Melania broke her silence on the detentions which have seen immigrant children separated from their families earlier this week.

Left-leaning criticism isn't necessarily a concern for the first lady. A federal prosecutor said "there was no prosecution sought" in light of Trump's executive order ending the practice of separating families.

The easy, knee-jerk interpretation is that she doesn't care in the slightest about the kidnapped children she's on her way to meet with.
