Melania Trump wears jacket with slogan “I don’t really care do u?” to visit a migrant child detention centre

First Lady Melania Trump has caused controversy by wearing a jacket with the words “I don’t really care do u?” across its back on a visit to a migrant child detention centre in Texas.

Mrs Trump was seen wearing the $39 Zara jacket while boarding a plane to Texas.

While the First Lady herself has not commented on the controversy, many have voiced their outrage on social media:
