White House downplays message on Melania Trump’s jacket

Side by side The First lady traveled with Alex Azar Secretary of Health and Human Services for the trip which was also to a border processing center

She is aware of the message she is sending, which is typically one of aspirational luxury. Two-thirds of Americans have said in polls they oppose separating immigrant families, though a majority of Republicans say they support the President's approach. "It is my hope that Members of Congress will finally reach across the aisle and work together to solve this problem with common sense immigration reform that secures our borders and keeps families together".

The first lady herself called for political compromise to end the stripping of children from their parents - the result of the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy against illegal border crossings, in effect since May.

Unsurprisingly, people had strong feelings about the optics of this-including her husband Donald Trump.

"I'm here to learn about your facility", the first lady said as she met with staff and federal health and border patrol officials. The first lady most likely has a full understanding of the spotlight she is under, with coverage of her disappearance from the public eye earlier this year and of her fashion choices.

Later, she toured a section of the facility where the children have bedrooms and was told they maintain their own rooms.

Melania Trump dons 'I really don't care, do u?' jacket
USA first lady Melania Trump walks from her to her motorcade wearing a Zara design jacket with the phrase "I Really Don't Care". She visited a schoolroom at Upbring and chatted with about 20 young girls and boys who had school folders on their desks.

Stephanie Cutter, who was deputy campaign manager for President Barack Obama's reelection campaign, said the first lady could easily have avoided the shift of attention.

In Texas, Melania Trump asked during a roundtable how many times children are allowed to speak to their family and in what physical and mental state the children are brought in. The children attend school five days a week and have access to a variety of activities. "So they're escaping some pretty horrific situations", said Kurt Senske, the CEO of Upbring.

But in some sort of bizarrely insensitive fashion no-no, Melania made a decision to board the plane to the middle of a major human rights debate wearing a long green jacket that said "I don't really care, do u?" on the back. It's a jacket. There was no hidden message.

Grisham underscored that message in a tweet with the hashtags #SheCares and #ItsJustAJacket.

When she arrived in Texas the first lady was no longer wearing the $39 (€34) jacket from Zara.

Shooting injures 4 in Sweden's Malmö
A Swedish newspaper is reporting that four people have injured in a shooting near a police station in the southern city of Malmo. According to the Aftonbladet daily, the victims were attacked as they left an internet cafe in the middle of the town.

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

"These children as they are being separated by their parents are going to face the traumas that are part of post-traumatic stress disorder - anxiety, stress, depression, nervousness", psychologist Dr. Jeff Gardere told Inside Edition. "We don't like to see families separated".

In addition to ending family separations, the compromise addresses Trump's goals of boosting border security including funding for his wall, limiting so-called "chain migration", ending the visa lottery program and providing legal protections for so-called Dreamer immigrants who were brought to the country illegally as children.

And yes, we know there are many more important questions Thursday than an outfit choice.

The pictures of Trump in the hooded jacket showed her boarding her jet (the FLOTUS plane is known as Executive One Foxtrot) at Andrews Air Force Base in suburban Washington Thursday morning.
