When asked what message the first lady's jacket meant to send, spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said: "It's a jacket". Later, she was pictured again, wearing it upon her arrival back at Andrews Air Force Base, CNN reported. She inquired about the children's physical and mental care.

The words are spelled out in white, graffiti-style lettering across the back of the jacket, which retailed for $39 at Zara.

After a tour of facilities, Grimsham said the images of the little ones kept behind a chain-link fence "struck her, as a mother, as a human being".

Spokesperson Ms Grisham says the unannounced visit "was 100 percent her [Melania's] idea".

While there may not be a "hidden message" in her jacket, Trump knew that wearing the outfit would prompt a reaction.

As many noted, Donald Trump's tweet appeared to immediately contradict Melania Trump's office and cast her visit more as a stunt to make a statement against the media than a genuine trip to show interest in the children affected by Trump's policy.

Visiting another classroom, Melania asked children where they were from and how long they'd been at the centre where staff said children typically spend between 42 and 45 days.


In contrast, she wore a floral coat worth $51,000 at last year's G7 summit.

The jacket elicited a number of reactions on social media.

Melania Trump's communications director, Stephanie Grisham, said in a statement, "It's a jacket". He then zinged Trump, "I'm guessing this is one message she did not steal from Michelle Obama", referencing her 2016 Republican National Convention speech that was plagiarized from the previous first lady.

Left-leaning criticism isn't necessarily a concern for the first lady. A White House official followed up Wednesday, saying Melania had been making her opinion known to the president that he needed to act to keep migrant families together. The jacket read, "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?".

The trip to Texas was the most high-profile public appearance Melania Trump had made since undergoing a surgical procedure for a kidney condition on May 14. "And, I'm going to guess this is one message she did not steal from Michelle Obama".

Grisham had earlier bashed the media for paying so much attention to Melania Trump's sartorial choices.
