President Trump said on Thursday that first lady Melania Trump's eye-catching jacket with the words "I really don't care. Do U?" that she before and after a trip to Texas to visit with migrant children, was a reference to the news media.

"I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" written on the back of Melania's jacket, refers to the Fake News Media," the president said in a tweet.

The first lady's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, however, had earlier downplayed the fashion choice, saying it was "just a jacket."

The Daily Mail first reported on Thursday that the first lady was photographed wearing the Zara jacket, while boarding a plane to visit immigrant children held in detention centers in Texas.

Critics were quick to attack the first lady's fashion choice, calling it insensitive.

Democratic Rep. Dina Titus tweeted out her own version of the jacket by wearing a sign attached to her back, reading "I Care."

Despite the criticism, the first lady was seen arriving at Andrews Air Force Base and the White House wearing the same jacket.
