Melania Trump Wears Tone-Deaf 'I Really Don't Care' Jacket During Border Trip

For a tour of Upbring New Hope, a housing facility for immigrant children aged 12 to 17, as well as other meetings throughout McAllen, she wore white jeans, a khaki shirt, and white Stan Smith sneakers.

Yep, the back of her jacket reads 'I Don't Really Care, Do U?'

First lady Melania Trump's outfit choice sparked outrage, confusion and shock on Thursday.

The clothing company did not immediately respond to a request from Newsweek to confirm if it made the jacket and, if so, if the first lady was wearing that jacket.

"Spending time with them reinforces the fact that these kids are in this situation as a direct result of adult action", she said.

"It's a jacket. There was no hidden message".

She added: "I hope we can talk about her important visit with children today rather than her wardrobe choice".

"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".

Program Director Roy De La Cerda told the first lady that the mostly Guatemalan children typically stay at the center for an average of 42 to 45 days.

U.S. First Lady Melania Trump travelled to Texas today to visit immigrant children being detained at the border wearing a jacket with the phrase, "I really don't care, do u?" scrawled on the back.

First lady Melania Trump boards a flight to Texas at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland on June 21. Some of the young people were children taken from their parents at the USA border with Mexico.

By then the jacket was by then nowhere in sight.

She visited a schoolroom at Upbring and chatted with about 20 young girls and boys who had school folders on their desks.

In one classroom, children were being educated on the July Fourth Independence Day holiday.

Children at the facility welcomed Trump with a large paper American flag they'd signed. She has shown that she won't bow to public pressure or expectations about how she should comport herself as first lady. "I feel very strongly about it", the president said in remarks as he signed the executive order Wednesday.

I think we were undervaluing pictures when we said they were worth 1000 words. "We don't like to see families separated", Trump said.

Melania's trip to Texas was cut short by heavy rain and flash flooding.
