Melania Trump eats diamond necklaces on the cover of Vanity Fair Mexico
See the cover image below!
The First Lady of the United States Melania Trump has appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair in Mexico, as USA relations with the Mexican leader deteriorate.
Donald Trump and President Enrique Pena Nieto were set to meet Tuesday, but Pena Nieto cancelled the meeting Thursday, the day of the magazine's release, after Trump tweeted, "If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting". The photo shoot and the accompanying interview are actually recycled content - they originally ran in sister (or is it brother?) publication GQ past year.
Social media users expressed their opinions about the cover.

"The U.S. has a 60 billion dollar trade deficit with Mexico", the real estate mogul wrote.
Inside the magazine, another article titled "The Misfortune of being Barron Trump" focuses on the president's youngest son. And so, one would expect Vanity Fair's various editions to form a united front against the Trumps, rather than simultaneously condemn the President and effectively endorse the First Lady. "Julia Ioffe, a journalist who is looking to make a name for herself, clearly had an agenda when going after my family", wrote the First Lady, adding that there were "numerous inaccuracies" in the story (though she did not break down or correct said falsehoods).
"*For once* Melania Trump's permanently confused expression matches an understandable reaction to what the photographer has asked her to do", wrote one British journalist, remarking upon the weird jewelry consumption motif. In choosing to recycle a story Melania finds offensive, was Vanity Fair Mexico throwing shade at the Trumps?
The new First Lady appears on the cover of the magazine in a pose as though she is eating from a bowl filled with jewellery.
