After Melania Trump faced criticism for wearing a "I really don't care, do u?" jacket on her way to a immigrant children's shelter at the U.S.-Mexico border, President Donald Trump is striking back. He claims her coat has to do with "fake news," not families being separated at the border. Read on to see what he had to say.
"'I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?' written on the back of Melania’s jacket, refers to the Fake News Media," the president tweeted Thursday night. "Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!"
The First Lady came under fire after she was photographed wearing a green jacket with "I really don't care, do u?" written on the back.
A lot of people thought it was insensitive, given that she was on her way to the US-Mexico border on Thursday to tour an immigrant children's shelter.
Families have been separated at the border due to Trump's "zero tolerance" policy. More than 2,300 children are currently in shelters, according to the New York Times.
While the president has since signed an executive order reversing the policy, many are still wondering how he plans to reunite the thousands of children with their families. Many critics found Melania's jacket to be offensive given the circumstances.
What do you think about Trump saying Melania's jacket is about the "Fake News Media"? Let us know in the comments.
