Melania Trump Sets Off To Visit Detained Children Wearing A Coat With 'I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?' On It

The First Lady appears to have made quite the statement while making her way to visit immigrant children being detained at the Texas border in a coat with the words 'I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?' across the back.

Forty-eight-year-old Melania Trump wore the jacket, which is from Zara and costs just $39, at Andrews Air Force in Maryland where she got on a plane to the Upbring New Hope Children's Shelter.

However, perhaps someone pointed out to her that it probably wasn't appropriate attire (or maybe she felt her point had been made) because by the time she landed she'd changed into something a little suitable.

Her visit to the centre, which houses 55 kids, comes after the POTUS signed an executive order stopping family separation following a massive backlash from celebrities, the media, members of the public and even his own wife by the sounds of things.

Stephanie Grisham, Melania's spokesperson, said the First Lady was keen to thank staff and have a look at the facilities for herself.

She said: "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."

She continued: "While we're going through that process she's going to lend her support and promote family reunification and I'm sure she'll continue to give her husband opinions on what she's thinking along the way.

"She'll do everything she can and she'll speak her opinions as much as she can."

While Melania added: "I'm looking forward to meeting the children." Yeah, and I bet they can't wait to see you, buddy.

Over the weekend Mrs Trump spoke out about the controversial issue of family separation, which was being carried out by her hubby's administration.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, spokesperson Grisham said: "Mrs Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform.

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

After a tour of facilities, Grimsham said the images of the little ones kept behind a chain-link fence 'struck her, as a mother, as a human being'.

Fair enough - still, probably best to put that coat away until the heat dies down, eh?
