President Trump Says Melania's Controversial Jacket Directed at 'Fake News Media'

Photos of Melania wearing the jacket while en route to an immigrant children's detention center in Texas began circulating online, prompting many to criticize her choice of wardrobe, which is what led to the president's response.

"It's a jacket. There was no hidden message", said Melania Trump's publicist, insisting reporters instead focus on the First Lady's detention center visit.

Melania Trump wore a hooded green khaki jacket designed by fashion chain Zara as she boarded her flight to Texas in front of news photographers.

President Donald Trump said his wife's jacket "refers to the Fake News Media". She inquired about the children's physical and mental care.

Mr Trump said yesterday as he signed an order to scrap the policy: "It's about keeping families together while at the same time making sure that we have a very powerful, very strong border".

"She wants to see what's real", Grisham told CNN.

During her visit to the Upbringing New Hope Children's Shelter, Melania said 'I'm looking forward to meeting the children'. "Her goals are to thank law enforcement and social services providers for their hard work, lend support and hear more on how the administration can build upon the already existing efforts to reunite children with their families".

Melania Trump was unable to escape controversy on the trip.

The former model's press secretary Stephanie Grisham said Melania decided to make the last-minute trip to witness the ongoing border crisis firsthand. Over 2,300 children have been taken away from their parents at the Southern border since mid-May and placed into facilities.

Mrs Trump's husband credited her and his daughter Ivanka for persuading him to end the separation of children from parents who had entered the United States illegally. When she asked how often children are allowed to speak to their families, she was told children with verified families get a 10-minute phone conversation twice a week. "We don't like to see families separated", Trump said on Wednesday.

Joining her on the trip is Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar.

Democrats, along with much of the media, have been portraying the President, and consequently the First Lady, as not caring about these children, many of whom have been torn out of their parents' arms, kicking and screaming.
