President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Friday fearing his wife Melania would not be featured on a magazine cover as the first lady. This is in direct contrast to her predecessor Michelle Obama, who starred as First Lady on twelve covers.
Trump calls out magazines because they don't contain Melania
Trump retweeted an article from Brietbart News entitled, "The elite snobs of the fashion press kept the most elegant first lady in American history off the covers of their magazines for four consecutive years."
Trump added that Melania “is the greatest of all time. Fake news! "

During her time as first lady, Michelle was on twelve front pages, including three for Vogue alone, according to the Daily Mail.
Before Melania married Trump, she made a living as a model, which means she is arguably more qualified to appear on magazine covers than any other first lady in history. Before Melania became First Lady, she was even featured on the cover of Vogue in February 2005 after her wedding to Trump, wearing a Christian Dior wedding dress.

Many social media users agreed with the president that it's a farce that Melania wasn't on any cover.
“Melania is always, always gorgeous and elegant !!! It is her loss of millions not to have published a cover story about our beautiful Melania, who is so loved by patriots, "wrote one Twitter user, another added:" Really sad. Melania is beautiful and has a big heart. "
"I agree with that!" A third user commented. “She is not only beautiful and noble, but also intelligent, hardworking and friendly. I sent her a gift from us @Nifty and she took the time to drop me a note. I appreciate everything that it stands for @FLOTUS Merry Christmas! "

Woods also pulls out magazines
Hollywood star James Woods called out magazines for failing to get Melania on their front pages earlier this year.
"If you need further proof of the shameless bias of the mainstream liberal media, the most formidable first lady in American history has never graced our nation's top front magazines … @FLOTUS @realDonaldTrump," he tweeted.
