Melania Trump Visits Immigrant Children at Border After Telling President to End Separation Practice

When boarding the plane in Maryland, Trump was spotted wearing a khaki green jacket with the words "I really don't care, do you?" scrawled in white graffiti-style writing on the back.

CNN's Klein argued that "the notoriously private former model is intentional about her wardrobe choices: the instantly-iconic white hat for the French state visit, her white suit at the State of the Union speech and the pussy bow blouse she donned after the "Access Hollywood" tape surfaced all sent a clear message".

"You can say there are no hidden messages here, but of course there are", said Dawnn Karen, a fashion psychologist and branding consultant.

If you were wondering if Melania Trump cares about the over 2,300 children that have been separated from their families due to her husband's cruel policies - according to her jacket, she doesn't.

Grisham said the first lady two days ago told her team to make the visit happen and told President Trump of her plans.

Third-graders at a facility housing migrant children separated from their parents welcomed the first lady with a large paper American flag they'd signed.

Mrs Trump was on her way to meet migrant children separated from their parents in Texas at the border when she was first spotted in the jacket.

Mrs Trump first visited Upbring New Hope Children's Shelter, part of Lutheran Social Services - a facility that now houses about 60 children aged from five to 17, from Guatemala.


"I'm here to learn about your facility", she said as she received a briefing about the work of Upbring New Hope Children's Shelter. At the G7 summit a year ago, she wore a floral coat worth $51,000.

On Tuesday, for example, the President said in a tweet that Democrats "don't care about crime and want illegal immigrants, no matter how bad they may be, to pour into and infest our Country, like MS-13".

She joined about 20 mayors from cities across the country to call for the immediate reunification of immigrant children with their families.

The president had come under withering pressure to stop separating migrant families, including from the first lady, following a public outcry sparked by widespread government-distributed images of children held in fence-like structures.

It has already sold out, with sales being pledged to a refugee and immigrant support service based in Texas.

Mrs. Trump, whose focus as first lady is on child well-being, appears to have been among those pushing him to act.

Grisham had earlier bashed the media for paying so much attention to Melania Trump's sartorial choices.

The president's daughter offered thanks to Trump on Twitter after he signed the executive order.
