FOX News had a massive coup this week as Pete Hegseth secured the first interview with Melania Trump since she vacated the White House. One of the topics that came up on the FOX & Friends interview was why Trump was never on the cover of Vogue during her time as First Lady Hegseth asked about the editorial decision in the most complimentary way possible.
In first interview since leaving the WH, Melania is asked, “With your business background, and your fashion background, and your beauty, never on the cover of Vogue?”

Trump explained that even if they had asked, she was probably busy doing important things.
“They’re biased and they have likes and dislikes, and it’s so obvious. And I think American people and everyone sees it.
In a biography of Vogue editor Anna Wintour it was revealed that Wintour visted Trump Tower after Donald Trump won the 2016 election and didn’t reach out to Melania beforehand so Melania snubbed her. Perhaps the long-simmering Melania Trump – Anna Wintour feud may finally be ready to escalate.
