A message First Lady Jill Biden wore emblazoned with the message “LOVE” on the back was seen by many as a “not-so-subtle dig” on former First Lady Melania Trump.
Trump critics heaped praise on the “LOVE” message on Jill Biden’s jacket on Twitter, sharing photos of it and comparing her favorably to Melania.
Jill Biden wore the jacket while she and Joe met with Boris Johnson.

“Well, I think that we’re bringing love from America,” Jill Biden told Jennifer Jacobs when asked the meaning of the message. “I think that this is a global conference and we’re trying to bring unity across the globe and I think that’s important right now that you have a sense of unity.”

Democrats compared Jill Biden’s “LOVE” message to First Lady Melania’s “I really don’t care do you?” message jacket.
President Donald Trump tweeted at the time Melania’s message “refers to the Fake News Media. Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!”
Melania’s spokewoman at the time Stephanie Grisham said “It’s a jacket. There was no hidden message. After today’s important visit to Texas, I hope the media isn’t going to choose to focus on her wardrobe. ”
Ana Navarro compared the two and wrote “No need for a caption.”
