What Was Melania Trump Doing at the Border?

What Was Melania Trump Doing at the Border?

During her unannounced visit to the border, the First Lady had planned to stop at two facilities in McAllen Texas: a border patrol center that processes migrant families and a detention center for children who have arrived from Central America.

The first lady wore a green, hooded military jacket from the fast-fashion brand Zara that read "I really don't care, do u?" both as she departed and returned to Washington.

Melania Trump's surprise visit to a Texas facility housing migrant children sent there by the USA government drew more attention for her wardrobe than her actual visit.

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

Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order that halts the practice of separating families, but it doesn't end "zero tolerance". The girl's mother was being frisked and body-searched (after which she was reportedly detained) when Moore took this picture.

The first lady's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, reportedly responded saying, "It's a jacket".

"Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!" he said. Privately, she also encouraged her husband to abandon the policy, according to people familiar with the matter.

Hours after the photo was taken, Grisham issued a second statement on her official Twitter account blasting the media.

The North Korea Peace Deal
Trump made that announcement following his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore. Last year's Ulchi Freedom Guardian went on for 11 days in August and involved about 17,500 US troops.

The visit was made images of distraught children crying for their mothers and housed in barren cages were broadcast worldwide, prompting outrage across the political spectrum.

'She wants to see what's happening for herself and she wants to lend her support, executive order or not.

Or maybe it was a different message to the media - "I really don't care what you think [of me]". She co-signed Trump's birther theories, she co-signed her husband's comments about sexual assault, and she has reaped the benefits of her husband's sexist and racist policies for years.

She was engaged and asked questions throughout their discussion, thanking the representatives at the table for treating the immigrant children who have been separated from their families with "kindness" and "compassion".

The visit spotlights the dissenting role the first lady appears to have played, first behind the scenes and eventually more publicly, as her husband's administration has implemented what it calls a "zero-tolerance" immigration approach.
