Asked about the military-style jacket with large white brush-style lettering - apparently sold for $39 at Zara, according to the Daily Mail which first spotted the odd choice of outfit - the first lady's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said: "there was no hidden message".
Brushing off the controversy she received by wearing the jacket, Melania took to Instagram to post a heartwarming message of support for the affected families at the United States border. The first lady famously wore sky-high stilettos while visiting Hurricane Harvey victims previous year, the internet still hasn't forgiven her for sporting a $1,380 Balmain shirt to a hands-on gardening event at the White House, and who could forget the time she wore a bright-pink pussy-bow blouse just days after footage surfaced of her husband instructing Billy Bush to "grab" women by that very private body part?
Speaking on Today Friday, respected journalist Peter Alexander said: 'Nobody knows exactly what to make of it, but speaking to anybody who knows Melania Trump, and they will tell you that nothing the former model does is accidental'.

From I really don't care, to I really do.
Trump says the Zero Tolerance Immigration Policy is still in effect. But it wasn't long before the first lady's controversial jacket threatened to overshadow the entire goodwill junket to the border.
First Lady Melania Trump with immigrant children at the Texas immigration centre. If media would spend their time & energy on her actions & efforts to help kids - rather than speculate & focus on her wardrobe - we could get so much accomplished on behalf of children. She referenced the incident in a statement sent to reporters Thursday. "Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!" the president wrote Thursday evening.
