First lady Melania Trump visits detained immigrant children

"He tweeted, "'I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?' written on the back of Melania's jacket, refers to the Fake News Media.

The jacket was identified as a $39 piece from Zara.

The first lady's surprise visit came the morning after President Donald Trump signed an executive order halting the practice of separating families that entered the USA illegally.

Well, people wanted to find her, and here First Lady Melania Trump is: reminding us all that she made a decision to marry Donald Trump and any embarrassment she has suffered as a result is of her own doing.

Her spokeswoman said "there was no hidden message" in her sartorial choice.

Asked whether the first lady's jacket bore the words "I don't care", Grisham responded, "I don't know".

There was however no immediate plan in place to reunite the more than 2,300 children already separated from their families - igniting a fresh controversy over the conditions in which the children are living.

Today's visit to #Texas to spend time with children & thank the many hardworking individuals helping to care for them was very meaningful.

During her visit today, Trump said she was "looking forward to meeting the children".

It's unclear who, exactly, first had the idea to say her coat's message was directed at the media.

Trump reversed his tough stance on separating families after days of outrage over the policy from at home and overseas.

"She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws but also a country that governs with heart".

Because of flash flooding, the first lady's plans to visit the Ursula Border Patrol Center were scrapped.

For the second time since her husband took office - and the second time on a trip to Texas - Trump had made an unusual choice.

Speaking for many, Colbert wondered how this would have played out at Normal White House, and if one staffer would have been sacked, or five, or the "entire Executive Branch".

In her statement, the first lady described the children she met Thursday as "in good spirits" and "eager to learn".

Fashion is political for the first lady. She tempered her condemnation, though, by echoing part of her husband's (incorrect) assertion that the Democrats can fix the issue.
