Melania wore the jacked that had the words "I don't really care, Do you ?" printed on the back when visiting immigrant children in Texas.
Melania's spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham, said: 'It's a jacket. There was no hidden message'.
Even though there was a public outcry over the jacket, Melania then put it back on in order for her return trip to Washington, D.C. and was pictured wearing it again upon her arrival back at Andrews Air Force Base.
Trump tweeted to defend her on Thursday evening, insisting the message on her jacket 'refers to the Fake News Media' - despite her spokeswoman insisting there was 'no hidden message' behind it.

Did @FLOTUS really wear that jacket? Did someone tell her she needed irony? Or did they say that jacket needs ironing and she misunderstood?— Ken Olin (@kenolin1) June 21, 2018
The hypocrisy of @FLOTUS going down to the border to speak broken English to our refugees in that dumb jacket is a little hard to swallow. For all the trump supporters who defend her by saying she speaks five languages—English isn’t one of them.— Chelsea Handler (@chelseahandler) June 21, 2018

Actor, Patricia Arquette:
Is @FLOTUS so unfamiliar with English that she doesn’t know what the back of her jacket today says? That her initiative #BeBest is grammatically incorrect? Is there NO ONE ON HER STAFF to help her with these things?— Jane Lynch (@janemarielynch) June 21, 2018
Melania Trump just won worst dressed for the century.— Patricia Arquette (@PattyArquette) June 21, 2018
Melania's husband's response to the criticism:
“I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” written on the back of Melania’s jacket, refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 21, 2018
