Melania Trump's Jacket Choice Criticized
This is What's Trending Today...
American first lady Melania Trump wore a piece of clothing that read "I really don't care, do u?" on her way to visit migrant children at a holding center in Texas. Some of the young people were children taken from their parents at the U.S. border with Mexico.
The green, military-style jacket is from the clothing seller Zara. The words were written in large white letters on the back.
Melania Trump's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, was asked to about the message on the clothing. She answered, "It's a jacket. There was no hidden message. After today's important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn't going to choose to focus on her wardrobe. "
Grisham underscored that message in a tweet with the hashtags #SheCares and #ItsJustAJacket.
However, a tweet from President Trump suggested there was a message. He wrote: "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" written on the back of Melania's jacket, refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!"
Trump changed into a different jacket before her plane landed in McAllen, Texas. She visited the Upbring New Hope Children's Center there. It is holding 55 of the thousands of children under U.S. government supervision.
The first lady's jacket quickly made her a trending topic on Twitter.
Twitter user RiotGrl posted: "If Michelle Obama had worn the jacket Melania Trump wore today, there would be civil war right now."
Media personality Toure wondered in a Tweet whether Melania Trump or those around her gave much thought to the message on the jacket. He posted: "I'm confused about Melania's jacket. I don't believe she really meant to say she doesn't care. I don't buy that she's that callous. But I don't believe that neither she nor her staff realized the message she was sending. They all can't be that clueless. So, I'm confused."
Zara is a Spanish-based company with a large presence in the United States and around the world. It had no comment on the story. The jacket belongs to the company's spring-summer 2016 season.
It is not the first time Melania Trump's fashion choices have been criticized. Last August, the media and public discussed the high-heeled shoes she wore to fly to Texas to view Hurricane Harvey destruction. She had changed into white sneakers by the time she and the president landed.

日前，美国第一夫人梅拉尼娅·特朗普（Melania Trump）前往德克萨斯州一家收留中心看望移民儿童时，身穿一件印着“我根本不在乎，你呢？”字样的外套。这些青少年中有一些是在美墨边境被迫与父母分开的儿童 。
梅拉尼娅的女发言人斯蒂芬妮·格里斯汉姆（Stephanie Grisham）被问及这件外套所传递的信息。她解释说：“只是一件外套而已，没有其他深层含义 。今日对德克萨斯州的重要访问结束 。希望媒体不要再把重点放在她的着装上 。”
然而，特朗普总统的一条推特暗示这件外套传递了某种信息。他写道：“梅拉尼娅外套后背的'我根本不在乎，你呢？’指的是散播虚假新闻的媒体 。梅拉尼娅早就领教了他们有多么奸诈，而她也根本不再在意 。”
梅拉尼娅在飞抵德克萨斯州麦卡伦市前换了一件外套。她探望了当地的新希望儿童中心 。在美国政府监管的数千名儿童中，有55名儿童被该中心收留 。
知名媒体人士杜尔（Toure）在推特中发问，梅拉尼娅或其身边的工作人员是否充分考虑到外套上这些字的含义。他写道：“关于梅拉尼娅的外套，我有些不解 。我不相信她真的想表达不在乎，我不相信她那么无情 。但是我也不相信她或其身边的工作人员没有意识到这件外套传递的信息，她们不会无知到如此程度 。我很困惑 。”
Zara是一家总部位于西班牙的时装公司，在美国乃至世界各地都拥有大量业务。该公司没有对该新闻置评 。这件外套属于该公司2016年春夏款 。
梅拉尼娅因时尚品味遭批并非首次。去年8月，她奔赴德克萨斯州查看飓风“哈维”的破坏程度时，因脚踏高跟鞋受到媒体和公众热议 。在飞机降落时，她换成了白色运动鞋 。
