First lady Melania Trump leaves Joint Base Andrews in Maryland wearing a jacket with the words "I REALLY DON'T CARE.

I am speechless. Melania Trump wore a jacket emblazoned with the saying 'I really don't care, do you?' when she left for Texas this morning", one Twitter user slammed.

The $39 jacket, made by Zara, is a distinct departure for the first lady, who tends to favor more expensive high-fashion looks.

Later, President Donald Trump said the jacket's message was a shot at the media.

In response to FLOTUS" spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham's claim that there was no hidden message behind the jacket, Kathy Griffin tweeted, "Yeah it's not the same thing @StephGrisham45.

However, it was what the First Lady wore while boarding the plane that got everyone's attention. She supports family reunification.

Thursday's statement may have been a message to the speculating public that the first lady really doesn't care what absurd ideas the world may have about where she's been or what she's thinking. Privately, she also encouraged her husband to abandon the policy, according to people familiar with the matter.

" 'I'm headed down to Texas, ' " is what Grisham said the first lady told her husband, and "he was supportive".

Melania Trump has been in the news a lot lately.

On the other hand, it's rare for a first lady to wear an item of clothing that so directly contradicts her stated intentions.

Thursday's visit was one of two that the president's wife made to the Texas facilities where some of the more than 2,300 migrant children are being housed after their families entered the us illegally.

Melania said earlier through her spokesperson that she "hates" to see families separated at the border. One outraged user borrowed an image of the back of the jacket to promote groups working on behalf of immigrant children.

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.

As for this visit, Trump was guided around by the Upbring CEO, Dr. Kirk Senske, who told the First Lady: "We're honored to show you our shelter".
