Melania Trump's visit to an immigrant children's shelter yesterday drew plenty of attention due to a particular sartorial choice she made.


The 48-year-old headed down to the US-Mexican border via a plane leaving from Andrews Air Force Base, according to CNN.


Press travelling with the first lady noticed that her olive green jacket reads 'I really don't care. Do u?' in white writing on the back. She also wore it when leaving the Andrews Air Force Base after her visit.



Her choice in jacket, which was first reported on by the Daily Mail, has caused quite a bit of backlash due to the serious nature of her visit. 


In response to this criticism, East Wing communications director Stephanie Grisham issued a statement saying:


"It's a jacket. There was no hidden message. After today's important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn't going to choose to focus on her wardrobe."



President Donald Trump claimed that the jacket's slogan was aimed at the media.


"'I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?' written on the back of Melania's jacket, refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!" he tweeted.
