On the back of the coat was this provocative message: "I don't care, do u?"

First Lady Melania Trump drew the attention of national media on June 21 with a message on a jacket she wore on a trip to visit illegal alien children held at facilities near the southern border.

She gave a tacit thumbs up to Trump's decision to rip children away from parents despite knowing there's a high chance they'll never see their family again.

Trump made headlines earlier this week after she spoke out about the current immigration crisis taking place at America's borders, after it was revealed that thousands of children have been separated from their parents who attempted to enter the U.S. illegally.

In response to the outrage, Stephanie Grisham, a White House spokesperson, told CNN that Trump's jacket meant nothing.

In a few minutes, people started spoofing the jacket and adding their own messages.

Yep, the back of her jacket reads 'I Don't Really Care, Do U?'

How to watch Brazil vs. Costa Rica
With this victory, Brazil will progress to Round of 16, whereas Costa Rica has been eliminated from the tournament. Soon after the win, Brazil supporters took to social media to praise the performance of the team .

She asked the staff questions about their care, how long some have been detained and efforts to reunite them with family.

Melania's visit comes just one day after her husband signed an executive order created to end the family-separation policy.

The youthful jacket sharply contrasts with the first lady's typically bold, foreign-flavored wardrobe.

Far be it for me to criticise the sartorial choices of a First Lady of the United States - given I am a lower-than-dirt internet writer boy - but I simply must register my displeasure with this particular one.

Earlier in the day, though, the first lady's attire sent a different message. The status of kids who have already been separated from their parents before Trump signed his order is still up in there air. During her visit, Mrs. Trump toured a children's shelter and attended a briefing on the status of immigrant children.

Yesterday the world realized what Melania Trump has been trying to tell us since her husband announced his candidacy. Underneath she wore white jeans, a white trench-style shirt and white sneakers.

When she travels overseas, she's careful to choose outfits that conspicuously reflect the country she is visiting, including a belted jumpsuit in Saudi Arabia, her colorful dresses in France and Italy, and her nod to an Asian influence in Japan, China and South Korea.
