Former first lady Melania Trump sat down for her very first interview after leaving the White House in 2021. While speaking with Fox Nation’s Pete Hegseth, she blasted Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour for giving Jill Biden the opportunity to be on the magazine's cover page but ignoring her completely when her husband was the commander-in-chief of the nation.

During the conversation, Hegseth asked her, “We did a little research. You were the only first lady to go to the border. You did it twice. How did you put up with the constant criticism?” before adding: “Take Vogue, for example — five months into Joe Biden's presidency, Jill Biden's on the cover. [Vice President] Kamala Harris is on the cover before she's even sworn in. Hillary Clinton was on the cover when she was first lady. Michelle was on the cover three times. Yet with your business background and your fashion background and your beauty, never on the cover of Vogue. Why the double standard?”

Melania replied: “They're biased and they have likes and dislikes, and it's so obvious. And I think American people and everyone sees it. It was their decision, and I have much more important things to do — and I did in the White House — than being on the cover of Vogue.”

However, it’s not like the 52-year-old former model has not graced the cover of Vogue. She was the face of the magazine in February 2005 in her wedding dress soon after exchanging vows with Donald Trump. She was also reportedly given the opportunity to be part of Vogue after becoming the first lady but she refused since her photo on the cover was not promised.

On the other hand, Wintour has never directly said that she doesn’t want to work with Melania but in 2019, she told Christiane Amanpour, “Those of us that work at Conde Nast believe that you have to stand up for what you believe in and you have to take a point of view.”

Not just Jill, her predecessor Michelle Obama had also been on Vogue’s cover, not once but three times. And Vice President Kamala Harris was given the chance even before she was inaugurated in January 2021, which was met with controversies. But Harris took them in good faith and said she “hoped the cover would serve as an 'inspiration' to people of all genders, races, and ages, and demonstrate that 'your dreams are achievable,’” as reported by The Daily Mail.

Meanwhile, a number of people have taken to Twitter to express their thoughts over Melania’s interview and her “jealousy” towards Jill. A user tweeted, “Melanoma made the cover of GQ-UK, and Dr. BIDEN didn't give a shit!” The second user shared, “Hilarious that this still irritates her!  😂” The third one asked, “Please name the ‘important things’ Melania was too busy doing instead of trying her best to be on the cover of Vogue?”

A tweet read: “As someone else said, Vogue doesn't have a naked centerfold.” Another comment added: “The only thing Melania wanted during her time as First Lady, was the cover of Vogue. Jill Biden, Michelle Obama, Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton, Barbara Bush, Nancy Reagan, Betty Ford, Lady Bird Johnson, Jackie Kennedy…all had Vogue covers. But NOT Melania!”

"Washed up, soft porn, Russian mail order brides, purchased by tRump, weren't as appropriate as First Lady Jill Biden for the cover of Vogue. We're not ashamed of Jill. Melania," a person wrote. Another person noted: "Dr Jill Biden is Vogue, Melania Trump is Playboy." Anoher said, "A little jealous are we!"
