Melania Trump's 'I Really Don't Care' Jacket Did Not Go Over Well

The youthful jacket sharply contrasts with the first lady's typically bold, foreign-flavoured wardrobe.

Then she wore it *again* when she deplaned back at Andrews Air Force Base after the trip - and after the wave of initial outrage.

"When I heard she was doing this, I thought, okay!"

The controversial jacket was an olive green by Zara in white graffiti-style lettering worth $39.

Colbert also slammed Trump for meeting with a worker at the shelter, where she said "that's great" to the news that children are often held away from their parents for 42-45 days.

Her spokeswoman told Business Insider that "there was no hidden message".

Melania's press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, responded to the backlash in a statement to Us Weekly.

Using allegations from that case, FIFA's ethics committee opened its own case and banned him for eight years. He was banned from all footballing activities for making a dishonest payment to ex-UEFA boss Michel Platini.

Despite the insistence that there was no hidden message to the jacket, President Trump later tweeted that the writing on the back of the jacket "refers to the Fake News Media". Emblazoned on the back of the jacket is the slogan "I really don't care, do you?"

"The jacket Melania Trump wore to visit caged immigrant children", one user tweeted. A White House official followed up Wednesday, saying Melania had been making her opinion known to the president that he needed to act to keep migrant families together.

However, the jacket has elicited strong reactions on social media in the wake of the outcry over the Trump administration's zero-tolerance immigration policy.

"She wanted to see as close to what she had been seeing on TV", Grisham said.

Speaking on Today Friday, respected journalist Peter Alexander said: 'Nobody knows exactly what to make of it, but speaking to anybody who knows Melania Trump, and they will tell you that nothing the former model does is accidental'.

President Donald Trump himself seemed to contradict the idea coming out of the East Wing that the First Lady didn't mean to send a message with her wardrobe choice. "She was on top of the situation before any of that came out", Grisham said. But the move backfired, with the message being unclear, open to misinterpretation, going over the heads of people, and distracting from the positive goal of her trip. The first lady most likely has a full understanding of the spotlight she is under, with coverage of her disappearance from the public eye earlier this year and of her fashion choices.
