The claim, published on a conservative website, was repeated on social media throughout the week as President Donald Trump faced criticism over his administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy, which has left more than 2,300 children separated from their parents at the US border since May.
Stephen Colbert mocked Melania Trump's jacket on Thursday.
Lena Dunham, Sia, Amber Heard and other stars visited the border city of Tornillo, Texas, on Sunday to protest the Trump administration's policy that separated migrant children from their parents.
This is not the first time Melania is facing the ire of social media over her couture choice. "Do U?" emblazoned on the back in bold white typeface; she was not wearing the article of clothing when she landed in McAllen, Texas.
The conflicting statements have done little to quell the outrage over the jacket's message, with critics calling it tone-deaf and offensive in light of the highly divisive family separation policy unfolding at the Texas-Mexico border.
Melania wore the jacket on goal to send a message to her husband, the report claims. "What was her first choice, a jacket that says 'womp, womp?'" "DO U?" as she departed the White House to visit the shelter in Texas.
"I think we are doing quite well on the bill because the conference together is working on it", House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said after Trump's tweet on Friday, according to MSNBC reporter Garrett Haake.
And she's right: The message was loud and clear.
President Donald Trump's administration on Friday worked on a plan to reunite separated families, and detained parents struggled to get in touch with their children, some of whom were being held hundreds of miles away.
Melania, during a meeting with officials, asked how often the children speak to their families by telephone, how they are emotionally cared for on arrival and on average how long they stay at the facility before being placed elsewhere.
Currently, the onus is on NGOs to reunite the families, with concerns growing over some children who may never see their parents again.
