Melania Trump said in an ABC News interview broadcast Friday night that there was a message behind her infamous jacket that said "I really don't care, do u?"
Trump wore the jacket on a trip to the border to visit migrant children who had been separated from their parents.
She noted that she wore the jacket getting on and off the plane, but not during her visits with children, and said it was a message to "people and the left-wing media who are criticizing me."
Mrs. Trump said the jacket was a statement that the criticism will not stop her from doing "what I feel is right."
She said she purposely wore the jacket on the flight back to Washington after seeing "how the media was obsessed about it."
"It was kind of a message, yes," the first lady said.
In another portion of the interview, which aired earlier this week, Mrs. Trump says she could be "the most bullied person" in the world and women who make accusations of sexual assault need to "show the evidence."
