However, she is also surprised that the message on her jacket "blew up in her face".
Melania was not wearing the jacket when she landed in McAllen, Texas. "Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!" he tweeted.
The First Lady opted for a green khaki jacket from Zara with the phrase "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" scrawled on the back in white brush strokes.
"Donald was furious over Melania's jacket, but then, that's why she wore it, to piss him off and to cause him maximum embarrassment", a source told the celebrity gossip outlet.
President Donald Trump has fully embraced a far-right conspiracy theory that the images and audio of devastated children distraught after being ripped from their parents arms are fake.
President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order to end his policy of separating immigrant children from their families on the US-Mexico border, after images of youngsters in cages sparked outrage at home and overseas.
This is not the first time Melania is facing the ire of social media over her couture choice.
"It's a jacket", spokesperson Stephanie Grisham said.
FLOTUS spox confirms Mrs. Trump wore a jacket to visit border kids that reads: "I really don't care".
It was Trump's idea to go to the border to see firsthand how migrant children are being treated, her husband said.
President Trump has signed an executive order that illegal immigrant families will no be separated, but confusion remains over what will happen to those already separated, and no plans have been put in place by the government.
Wednesday's move marked a rare instance since Trump took office in January 2017 in which he has changed course on a controversial policy, rather than digging in. Past administrations, Nielsen said, separated families at the border when federal agents suspected the adult of human trafficking, smuggling, posing a national security risk or when the adult's relationship to the child could not be verified.
"It's the first thing that made me really not like her", McCain later said.
The Twitter outcry throughout the day was swift, with many appalled at what seemed to be an ill-conceived - if unintentional - message when she was traveling to visit migrant children separated from their parents.
