But President TrumpDonald John TrumpCNN analyst Kirsten Powers: Melania's jacket should read "Let them eat cake" CNN's Cuomo confronts Lewandowski over "womp womp" remark Sessions says Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok no longer has his security clearance MORE contradicted that statement, saying in a tweet that the message referred to "the Fake News Media". Trump took it off before she stepped off the plane in Texas.

"Good luck", Melania Trump said to refugee children who were separated from their parents as she was leaving. After initially defending the situation and then blaming it on his predecessor, he later said he will move to end the policy.

Many in the media pounced, with President of the Center for American Progress Neera Tanden arguing on CNN that the jacket may have represented a "moment of true candor" from the administration.

Sensing the heat, Trump's spokesperson Stephanie Grisham tried to deflect the media attention and said there was no hidden message behind the jacket using SheCares hashtag in the tweet. A White House official confirmed to NPR that the first lady lobbied her husband to keep undocumented immigrant families together. The first lady is a woman who understands the power of clothes, and unless the jacket was placed on her while blindfolded, she was sending a message. There was no hidden message. During a 1996 visit to Japan, first lady Hillary Clinton "baffled" her host nation by wearing several all-black ensembles.

Twitter users took to the social media network to express their anger. She, as the First Lady, chose this unbelievably tone-deaf parka on her way to visit to detained, parentless children. Liberty is in Mrs. Trump's jacket and declares: "We should all care".

The White House Director of Communications for FLOTUS, Stephanie Grisham, told Fox News Trump's jacket wasn't meant to send any kind of message. We'll likely never know what the true message was.

"Soooo what if we made our own version of Melania's jacket and donated all the proceeds to @raicestexas, WHO'S IN?" they read. "I DON'T REALLY CARE, DO U?" is President Trump, Stephen Miller, Anne Coulter and Laura Ingrham talking.

Wildfang announced Friday evening that it had raised $75,000 for RAICES.

It's not the first time her clothing choices have been branded insensitive.

Wildfang's version of the jacket nearly immediately sold out, but the company created several other options, including a bomber and a t-shirt, with the same message printed on them. But it wasn't long before the first lady's controversial jacket threatened to overshadow the entire goodwill junket to the border.
