Melania Trump makes surprise visit to Texas to tour border facilities

Nearly 100 children separated from parents at the border are in L.A. area most of them detained advocates say A detention center in McAllen Texas

FLOTUS Melania Trump deliberately wore her controversial 'I don't care, do u?' jacket to meet detained child migrants, an expert claims.

Melania Trump later visited the Upbring New Hope Children's Center, where she spoke with children and staff.

Signing the order, President Trump said he had been swayed by the images of children being held in detention centres. And what was she thinking?

She told the children to "be kind and nice to each other". "After today's important visit to Texas, I hope this isn't what the media is going to choose to focus on", she said.

How likely is this? This is what First Ladies often do. The jacket belongs to the company's spring-summer 2016 season.

The mainstream media - so predictably - pounced on the message on her jacket.

"She doesn't care and neither do you @realDonaldTrump!" wrote Bishop Talbert Swan. Privately, she also encouraged her husband to abandon the policy, according to people familiar with the matter.

Grisham underscored that message in a tweet with the hashtags #SheCares and #ItsJustAJacket.

Mr Trump has doubled down on this repeatedly, labelling the reports into his wife as "unfair and vicious".

The fan did end up with a small hematoma in her eye, and bruises on her face. "It's going to go down the side of my face". She does not plan to bring any legal action, unlike a Royals fan who sued that team over a similar incident in 2009.


Separately, the US military was asked by the government to get ready to house up to 20,000 unaccompanied immigrant children at military bases, Pentagon spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Jamie Davis said.

A gold star to anyone who guessed that Stephen Colbert would mine comedy gold from the First Lady's weird message-embossed attire during Thursday's "Late Show" monologue, what with all the furor over children of aspiring immigrants being ripped from their parents and imprisoned in cages. Since entering the White House, Mrs Trump has focused on initiatives against bullying and cyber-bullying in particular.

Reactions to the wardrobe choice were mixed on social media. Kimmel said. "I'm sure they'll have the same reaction to this".

Spokesperson Ms Grisham says the unannounced visit "was 100 percent her [Melania's] idea". "Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!" he tweeted. Over 2,700 children have been isolated from their parents since October, pressuring capacity at facilities amid a crackdown by law enforcement officials.

President Trump has said he will sign the Republican's immigration reform bill if it's passed by Congress.

A chorus of celebrities blasted the move. "Now, before we show you this photo, please know it's real", assured Colbert of the photo (below), which is, amazingly enough, not a fake.

"En route to visit #TrumpCamps, @FLOTUS wears 'I don't really care do u?' jacket".
