First Lady Melania Trump received criticism on Thursday for wearing a jacket emblazoned with the phrase, "I really don't care. Do U?" as she boarded her plane to fly to Texas to visit an immigrant children's shelter.

The details: Trump was not wearing the jacket when she de-boarded the plane, and when she visited the children. She also received similar criticism after she wore high heels to visit Hurricane Harvey victims in Texas last year.
