Every time Melania Trump has used her clothes to make calculated political statements

It wouldn’t be the first time that someone speculated about the calculated political statements behind some of Melania Trump‘s outfit choices. However, the sentiment has now come from former political aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, which has people flipping back through FLOTUS’s fashion choices. 

InUnhinged, the debut tell-all book by the reality star turned political aide, Newman wrote, “I believe Melania uses style to punish her husband.”

Trending back to the leak of Donald Trump‘s old Access Hollywood interview, where he delivered his now infamous line “Grab her by the p****,” the president’s wife hasn’t held back when it comes to ironic fashion choices — namely, the two pussy-bow outfits she wore at her husband’s presidential debates that occurred while voters were still reeling.

Other debatably controversial choices by Melania have included designers known for being favorites of former first lady Michelle Obama and other progressive celebrities. Most noticeable, still, is Melania’s latest move, where she wore a jacket that read, “I really don’t care, do u?” while headed to a U.S. border in Texas.

Whether these clothes are meant to make subtle statements, or not, here are Melania’s many looks that have had onlookers scratching their heads.
