First lady Melania Trump in a new interview says she was sending a message to the media when she wore a jacket that said “I really don’t care. Do U?” to the border when she visited migrant children in Texas over the summer.
The jacket was criticized by some who saw it as insensitive given the fact that Trump was visiting children separated from their parents at the border.
Trump told ABC News that it was meant to troll reporters who she said pay too much attention to what she wears.
“I would prefer that they focus on what I do, and my initiatives, than what I wear,” she said. “You know I often asking myself, I would not wear that if I would have so much media coverage. It’s obvious I didn’t wear the jacket for the children. I wore the jacket to go on the plane and off the plane. And it was for the people and for the left-wing media who are criticizing me.”
“I want to show them that I don’t care,” she continued. “You could criticize whatever you want to say, but it will not stop me to do what I feel is right.”
