Grisham told reporters on Thursday that the trip to Tucson was planned days after Trump returned from Texas, and that it presented the first lady with an opportunity to meet with some of the officials charged with carrying out the Trump administration's policies.
The first lady faced criticism during her last trip for wearing a jacket with stenciling on the back that read "I Really Don't Care, Do U?" while boarding her plane in Washington and deplaning upon her return to the capital.
