Ms Trump's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, responded with a statement to reporters saying: "It's a jacket".

Mrs Trump's husband, US President Donald Trump, tweeted that the jacket did, in fact, have a message and that it 'refers to the Fake News Media.

The awkwardness of the situation wasn't lost on many online, including Dictionary.com, who said it showed indifference.

Trump's visit to McAllen, Texas, came amid the firestorm over President Donald Trump's "zero tolerance" immigration policy that has led to children being separated from their parents at the US-Mexico border.

Honda hits late Japan leveller to blow World Cup group wide open
England now faces Panama, which is playing in its first-ever World Cup and looked overmatched in a 3-0 opening loss to Belgium. Poland defender Bartosz Bereszynski warned: "We know very well what is this game about, but we are optimists".

The notoriously private former model is intentional about her wardrobe choices: the instantly-iconic white hat for the French state visit, her white suit at the State of the Union speech and the pussy bow blouse she donned after the "Access Hollywood" tape surfaced all sent a clear message.

"Hey ⁦@FLOTUS⁩ we really DO care about children being torn away from their families", tweeted Lauren Hogg, a gun control activist and survivor of the Parkland school shooting. "Do U?" on her trip to visit a shelter for illegal child migrants in Texas.

"Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!" he said.

The Trump administration previously had not said whether any hundreds of children who were separated from their families had been reunited.

"I'm glad I'm here and I'm looking forward to seeing and meeting children, but first of all let me begin to recognize each of you and thanking you for all that you do, for your heroic work that you do every day and what you do for those children", Melania Trump said. However, when she wore a jacket with the slogan "I really don't care, do you" scrawled on the back last week, she sparked a political controversy since she was on her way to meet migrant children separated from their parents.

Under Mr Trump's executive order, immigrant families will now be housed together in detention centres while individual family members face charges.

So he reimagined the first lady's jacket to reflect the public outrage about families being ripped apart at the border.
