  • Melania Trump makes surprise visit to border facilities	 	 	 			Melania Trump

Or was it just the coat that was hanging by the door of the White House, and Melania knows that she gets chilled on planes?

When asked what message the first lady meant to send, spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said: "It's a jacket". While visiting with the children, she did not wear the jacket.

Melania's visit to McAllen comes amid the bipartisan backlash over the Trump administration's enforcement of a "zero-tolerance" policy - criminally prosecuting migrants who cross the US-Mexico border.

On Wednesday, when signing the executive order to reverse the policy on separating children from parents, Trump cited his daughter and his wife as influencing his decision. The words were printed in white, in graffiti-style, on the jacket's back.

The green hooded military spring jacket instantly sold out on Zara's website after images of Melania wearing it emerged.

"It's a jacket. There was no hidden message", Melania's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said in a statement to the press.

"Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!" he said.

The federally-funded Upbring New Hope centre holds around 60 children, aged between five and 17, from Honduras and El Salvador.

It was an odd choice for Trump - she isn't often seen wearing a $39 anything, and she rarely wears outfits not carefully thought out.

"These children as they are being separated by their parents are going to face the traumas that are part of post-traumatic stress disorder - anxiety, stress, depression, nervousness", psychologist Dr. Jeff Gardere told Inside Edition. By the time she had landed, she had taken off the jacket. The first lady has spearheaded a "Be Best" initiative, whose primary aim is to promote healthy behaviors among children, but child health experts have said that the practice of taking children from their parents has detrimental effects to their long-term health.

However, he made a U-turn yesterday under mounting pressure and when signing the order, Trump said he did it because he "didn't like the sight or the feeling of families being separated". Vanity Fair, at the time, speculated whether the choice of an Italian brand, rather than an American designer, was a show of support for Italy's Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, who had announced a day earlier that he would resign after voters rejected a referendum to change the Constitution.
