In a tweet on Friday, Trump called the first lady "the greatest of all time" while retweeted a Breitbart post that said "elitist snobs in the fashion press" marginalized the "most elegant first lady in American history."
“Fake News!” Added Trump.
Trump fans have long noted and lamented the First Lady's absence from US newsstands, and often accused the US press of exposing its liberal bias by posting 12 front pages to Michelle Obama, wife of former President Barack Obama Terms have been granted as First Lady, including three Vogue covers.
"If you need further evidence of the shameless tendency of the mainstream liberal media, the most formidable first lady in American history has never graced our nation's major covers," tweeted American actor and Trump supporter James Woods in February 2020.

Several leading fashion magazines have taken a political stance on the president, particularly Vogue.
In an interview with CNN in April 2019, Vogue editor Anna Wintour said, "You have to stand up for what you believe in and have a point of view."
However, Melania Trump was criticized by Vogue readers and magazine publishers in February this year for commenting on Wintour's decision to guest-edit an issue of the magazine during a private phone conversation.
"Anna gave Beyoncé the September edition of Vogue cover - complete, complete, complete, everything," said the first lady on the July 2018 call that leaked to NBC.
"She hired a black photographer. And it's the first black photographer to ever do a cover for Vogue."
The President himself has also expressed his personal dislike for TIME Magazine, which is named "Person of the Year" every year.
TIME named Trump "Person of the Year" in 2016, but the president questioned the magazine's choice of Greta Thunberg for the 2019 award.
