The "Wildfang" US clothing company has come up with an alternative to the Melania Trump jacket, by selling a jacket for $98 (Rs 6,650) with the slogan "I really care, don't you?" and proceeds going to a Texas-based refugee and immigrant advocacy group. "Do U?" in white graffiti-style lettering.

President Trump, in an apparent attempt to deflect the criticism over his wife's attire, tweeted that the jacket Melania wore "refers to the Fake News Media".

The awkwardness of the situation wasn't lost on many online, including, who said it showed indifference.

She visited a one-storey red brick building, which houses 55 children between the ages of 12 and 17. It's conceivable that she meant that, unlike her media-obsessed husband, she doesn't care about press coverage. "Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!".

After months of speculation, it seems Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have finally decided to make their relationship official. Also, some reports suggested that she wanted Nick by her side during her new housewarming grand party which will happen soon.

"I'm sure she'll continue to let her husband know her opinions", her communications director, Stephanie Grisham, said.

This is not the first time Mrs Trump has come under fire for her wardrobe.

"You have to understand: Melania trump not just put on for this trip 30 $ jacket that just happened to have in her wardrobe full of expensive designer clothes".

Melania, 48, was not wearing the branded Zara jacket when she landed in McAllen, Texas yesterday on a visit to personally witness the humanitarian situation along the US-Mexico border that has captured global attention. The first lady's visit came the morning after President Donald Trump signed an executive order halting the practice of separating families that entered the us illegally.

Democrats have persistently told Mr Trump that legislation is unnecessary and that all the situation requires is an executive order to change the policy.

The problem with this theory is that the immigrant first lady, who appears to be a devoted mother, had previously gone out of her way to say she "hates to see children separated from their families".

And sometimes, a first lady's choices can undercut her message, like when Michelle Obama drew scrutiny for sporting a pair of $540 Lanvin sneakers to volunteer at a food bank.
