& # 39; She has been there, done! & # 39; Melania Trump gets back with Vogue editor Anna Wintour who suggested she didn't want the first lady on the cover of the fashion magazine
- First Lady Melania Trump hit back on Vogue editor Anna Wintour on Friday to take her over on the cover of the fashion magazine
- & # 39; To be on the cover of Vogue, Mrs. Trump does not define, she has been there so long before she was First Lady, & # 39; said Stephanie Grisham, the first woman's spokeswoman. Wintour never said she wouldn't have Melania Trump on the cover, but suggested she wasn't interested in an interview with Christiane Amanpour.

First Lady Melania Trump hit back on Vogue editor Anna Wintour on Friday for hiring her on the cover of the fashion magazine.
& # 39; To be on the cover of Vogue, Mrs. Trump does not define, she has been there so long before she was First Lady, & # 39; said spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham.
Wintour never said she would no longer have Melania Trump on the cover – the former model appeared in 2005 after marrying the New York playboy and billionaire, who was now the president of the country – but suggested she didn't was interested.
Interviewer Christiane Amanpour noted that Wintour & # 39; openly & # 39; made political statements with her political profiles. She placed Sen. Kamala Harris, a Democratic known to be planning a 2020 run against the White House, who was on the cover last spring.
Former First Lady Michelle Obama appeared three times on the cover of the magazine while her husband was in office. Melania Trump's husband has held the position for over two years and she is not listed.
& # 39; It is clear that these are women that we believe are icons and inspirational for women from a global perspective, & # 39; she said to Amanpour. & # 39; I feel even stronger now that this is not the time to try – and I think it must be fair, people have to look in all directions – but I don't think it is a moment not to take a position & # 39;

Melania Trump appeared on the cover of the Vogue of February 2005 shortly after her marriage to the current president. She was wearing a cream-colored wedding dress for the cover photo of the magazine.
She and Wintour had been friendly, posing for photos at parties over the years, also at a party for Michael Kors in 2005, along with the designer and the future president.
As a New York titan, she changed her name from Melania Knauss, her maiden and model name, to her husband, Trump, after they were married.
Wintour endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016 on Melania's husband, as did Vogue, and helped the Democratic candidate and fellow New Yorker raise money for her failed White House bid.
She characterized Clinton as the first lady on the cover in 1998, after her husband was halfway through his second term.
The man from Melania has been in office for just over two years and has bullying as a problem. She generally promoted a campaign for children to be & # 39; Be Best & # 39; and visited a number of hospitals.
& # 39; You have to stand up for what you believe in and you have to take a position & # 39 ;, Wintour told Amanpour about how she picks her blankets. & # 39; We profile women in the magazine that we believe in the state in which they address issues that we support, we feel they are leaders. & # 39;
Grisham returned to Wintour in a statement on Friday afternoon that suggested that another Vogue cover would not be in the future of the first lady.
& # 39; Her role as the First Lady of the United States and everything she does is much more important than a superficial photo session and coverage, & # 39; said Grisham. & # 39; This proves once again how biased the fashion magazine industry is, and shows how insecure and daring Anna Wintour really is. Unfortunately, Mrs. Trump is used to this kind of divided behavior. & # 39;
