The First Lady's fashion choice made waves in the United States in June, with people claiming that it meant she didn't "really care" about the children of illegal immigrants separated from their families and detained in special facilities.
Melania Trump, mother of Donald Trump's son Barron, has opened up on the real reason behind her decision to wear a garment that incited a bevy of public criticism beyond those who usually concern themselves with the fashions of the first family.
In June, FLOTUS wore a designer khaki jacket with a print on the back reading: "I really don't care, do u?" as she boarded a flight to Texas where she was scheduled to visit a detention camp for immigrant children.
In an interview with ABC News aired on Friday, the Slovenian-born former model insisted that "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."
Although her spokesperson scolded the media for coverage of the jacket, saying that it bore no hidden message, the First Lady explained that it was targeted at her critics on the left.
"It was for the people and for the left-wing media who are criticizing me," she said. "And I want to show them that I don't care. You could criticize whatever you wanna say, you can say. But it will not stop me to do what I feel is right."
