First lady's shelter visit overshadowed by jacket

First lady's shelter visit overshadowed by jacket

The youthful jacket sharply contrasts with the first lady's typically bold, foreign-flavored wardrobe.

By pushing for the policy reversal, initiating the shelter visit, and with empathetic comments before and during the visit, Melania demonstrated she sincerely cared about the plight of the children.

The $39 jacket, made by Zara, is a distinct departure for the first lady, who tends to favor more expensive high-fashion looks. Though the circus of the Trump administration has brought us through a myriad of roller coaster emotion over the past year, the sheer incredulous and flippant nature of Trump's wardrobe choice is enough render actual vomit.

However, Melania was not wearing the jacket when she landed in McAllen, Texas.

The Phillies have apologized and offered her free tickets when she's ready to come back to the ballpark. She advised Phillies fans heading to future games, "Just to be aware because you never know".

"It's a jacket. There was no hidden message".

As many noted, Donald Trump's tweet appeared to immediately contradict Melania Trump's office and cast her visit more as a stunt to make a statement against the media than a genuine trip to show interest in the children affected by Trump's policy.

'Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!' Then, she put it back on when she returned to Andrews. and she wore it as she walked back into the White House.

European Union tariffs on United States goods come into force
The countries have hit each other with tariffs on $50 billion worth of goods; Trump has threatened to add another $200 billion . European Union steel and aluminium exports now facing U.S. tariffs are worth a total of 6.4 billion euros (RM29.6 billion).

However, it was what the First Lady wore while boarding the plane that got everyone's attention.

Mrs. Trump was reportedly an influence in her husband's decision to sign executive action to keep families together during border processing.

Third-graders at a facility housing migrant children separated from their parents welcomed first lady Melania Trump with a large paper American flag they'd signed. Trump decided to make the trip a day after the president signed an executive order to stop the separation of families, but it's not her timing people are questioning-it's her fashion choice. The idea that Melania just grabbed any old jacket without regard to how people might interpret it goes against literally everything we know about her.

East Wing communications director Stephanie Grisham told CNN in a statement that there wasn't any hidden meaning behind the jacket.

US Senate votes to ban ZTE
If this passes, fellow Chinese smartphone maker Huawei will also be prevented from using US-made equipment within its devices. Trump plans to host Republican members of Congress Wednesday to discuss a path forward on ZTE and other issues.

Mr Trump took to Twitter to defend his wife, blaming the media for the need to send a message.
