Trump admin says 500 families reunified, but thousands unaccounted for

Trump admin says 500 families reunified, but thousands unaccounted for

Wildfang, a female-founded clothing store that aims to empower people with its clothing, released a bomber jacket with the words, "I REALLY CARE, DON'T U?" on the back.

In a tweet Friday morning, President Donald Trump called the media coverage of traumatized immigrant children and parents "phony stories of sadness and grief", orchestrated by Democrats for political gain. Amnesty International US are all "shook" up about the jacket she wore on the trip.

Hours after the photo of her departure outfit went viral, she again donned the jacket to disembark the plane at an Air Force base outside Washington.

As the POTUS rescinded his zero-tolerance policy, authorities scramble to re-unite over 2000 children separated from their families at the USA border.

Publicly, the first lady has not offered her opinion of her husband's "zero tolerance" policy.

Trump's version of the jacket was sold by the Spanish fashion chain Zara.

"What was her first choice, a jacket that says 'womp, womp?'"

Melania Trump's spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham, told CBS News in a statement Thursday that the writing on Trump's jacket was not meant to send a message.

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

In a brazen move, however, she changed back into the jacket upon landing back in Maryland later in the afternoon, overlooking the swift criticism and the fact that the temperature was 81 degrees. "Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!", he tweeted.

Donald Trump defended his wife, saying the reference was her response to the "Fake News Media".

She also maintained that it was the first lady's idea to visit the Upbring New Hope Children's Shelter.

President Trump has been under fire for his immigration policies as part of which the children of immigrant families are left behind while the parents are termed as the "prisoners". If any one sentence sums up the sentiments of the Trump administration on its immigrant family separation policy so far, it's this one. In addition to her tone deaf "good luck" comment, Trump also told the kids, "Be kind and nice to other, OK?"
