Do U?" that she before and after a trip to Texas to visit with migrant children, was a reference to the news media. 

"I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” written on the back of Melania’s jacket, refers to the Fake News Media," the president said in a tweet. 

The first lady's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, however, had earlier downplayed the fashion choice, saying it was "just a jacket."  

The Daily Mail first reported on Thursday that Melania Trump was photographed wearing the Zara jacket while boarding a plane to visit immigrant children held in detention centers. The visit came the day after President Trump signed an executive order undoing his own policy of separating families who cross the border illegally.

Critics were quick to attack the first lady's fashion choice, calling it insensitive.

Despite the criticism, the first lady was seen arriving at Andrews Air Force Base and the White House wearing the same jacket. 

And an homage to the jacket quickly popped up on Etsy in t-shirt form.

Trump's hatred of the "fake news media" is well-documented. Just Wednesday night, he ripped the press as "very dishonest" at rally in Minnesota, leading to the crowd chanting "CNN sucks."
