Afterward, Melanie claimed that it was a total misunderstanding as she wanted to refer that message to the paparazzi who always stalk her every move.

The choice was because the country was in an uproar for Donald Trump’s immigration policy with "zero tolerance", separating families at the border. Melanie Trump’s spokeswoman then also shrugged off the scandal, saying it had no hidden meaning.
