Melania Trump Appears on Mexican Vanity Fair Amidst Tensions

Melania Trump Appears on Mexican Vanity Fair Amidst Tensions

Melania is photographed on the cover using an archive photo that features her sitting at a table and twirling a diamond necklace with a fork like she is eating spaghetti.

Despite the tensions between the two countries, including Trump's steadfast commitment to building a border wall between the nations, Melania Trump appears on the February issue of Mexico's Vanity Fair magazine.

The magazine hits newsstands just as the relationship between the United States and its neighbor to the south are fraying, thanks to President Trump's plan to build a wall along the border, and his insistence, despite Mexican leaders' statements to the contrary, that Mexico pay for it. While the tagline proclaiming her to be "the new Jackie Kennedy" might imply the interview was conducted post-Inauguration (or, rather, post powder blue Ralph Lauren getup), readers of Vanity Fair's sister mag GQ will recognize the cover shot.

If this was the assumption, Vanity Fair Mexico fell victim to that old adage about "u" and "me". It originally appeared in the April 2016 issue of GQ Magazine, which is owned by the same parent company (Conde Nast) as Vanity Fair.

North Korea to Launch Two Missiles on Trump's Inauguration Day
Experts are divided over how close the North is to developing an ICBM and miniaturizing nuclear warheads that would fit on one. The North may also be conducting field exercises.

The release of the cover sparked outrage among some people in Mexico who took to Twitter to express their dismay.

"The U.S. has a 60 billion dollar trade deficit with Mexico", the real estate mogul wrote.

Trump has yet to comment publicly on the new issue of Vanity Fair Mexico.

The magazine cover is hardly likely to be Melania Trump's last: First ladies as cover models on glossy magazines have become a time-honored tradition. But the introduction, which was penned after Trump's electoral victory, gives some insight into how Mexican writers view the first lady and her husband.
