"The first lady landed in McAllen, Texas under a heavy downpour, her motorcade driving through deep water to the Upbring New Hope Children's Shelter, a federally-funded facility that houses around 60 children from Honduras and El Salvador, ages five to 17".

And despite Trump's tweet voicing his opinion on the matter, the first lady herself hasn't actually weighed in, which means we're still left to speculate.

While there may not be a "hidden message" in her jacket, Trump knew that wearing the outfit would prompt a reaction.

Later, President Donald Trump said the jacket's message was a shot at the media.

Jacket by Zara from the Spring-Summer 2016 collection, with 'I really don't care do U?' slogan, was worn by first lady Melania Trump on June 21, 2018 during a visit to Texas to meet children taken from their parents at the U.S. -Mexico border.

At the second 2016 presidential debate, Mrs. Trump showed up in a fuchsia silk blouse with a large bow at the neck, long known as a "pussy bow blouse".

"We see them as if they were our own", said Roy De La Cerda, the program director.

Mrs Trump made a previously unannounced visit to a child migrant detention centre on Thursday, saying she wanted to help reunited migrant children who were separated from their families. Many celebrities, including George Clooney, Chrissy Teigen and Jimmy Kimmel, have publicly condemned the policy that caused at least 2,000 children to be separated from their parents.

She was told the children are "usually distraught" when they arrive, but "when they see the environment they start relaxing", CNN reports. "After today's important visit to Texas, I hope this isn't what the media is going to choose to focus on", Grisham said.

Grisham is referencing the backlash that exploded when the first lady was mocked for wearing sky-high stilettos as she headed to Texas after Hurricane Harvey in August.

Runways and store shelves have been filled in recent years with T-shirts bearing several messages: "We should all be feminists" shirts at Dior, "I am an immigrant" at Prabal Gurung, "People are people", at Christian Siriano. He says staff have "a tremendous passion for working with these children" and the center is "their home".

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

During the roundtable, Trump asked several questions including how many times the children speak with their families. The official refused to be identified discussing Trump's private conversations with his wife.
