Dr Jill Biden knows all to well that what we wear matters - a point she's proven perfectly with her latest outfit.

While attending the G7 Summit in Cornwall yesterday alongside her husband, President Biden, the First Lady was seen wearing a jacket emblazoned with the word 'LOVE' across the back.

Of course, fashion critics and social media users have immediately drawn comparisons between Biden's latest wardrobe choice and former First Lady Melania Trump’s controversial 'I really don’t care, do you?' coat, which she wore in 2018.

Trump infamously wore the olive green Zara coat while visiting migrant children on America's southwestern border. She later stated that the message was directed at her critics, not the families she was visiting.

“I want to show you the (left-wing media) that I don’t care,” Trump said at the time. “You could criticise whatever you want to say, but it will not stop me to do what I feel is right.”

In contrast, Biden explained what her ‘LOVE’ message meant, telling reporters: “I think that we’re bringing love from America.

“This is a global conference and we are trying to bring unity across the globe and I think it’s needed right now, that people feel a sense of unity from all the countries and feel a sense of hope after this year of the pandemic.”

The Bidens met with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie Johnson in Cornwall yesterday. Jill and Carrie spent some time on the beach with the Johnsons' baby son, Wilfred.

Naturally, Twitter users were quick to speculate that Biden's 'LOVE' jacket was a dig at Melania Trump - something which the current First Lady hasn't commented on (and is unlikely to).

One user wrote "massive upgrade" with the two images side by side, while another user said: "Jill Biden actually cares. Melania Trump on the other hand, doesn’t give a damn."
