Jill Biden gets the Vogue cover Melania Trump always wanted and says she will 'never waste' her First Lady platform06/29/2021
JILL Biden secured the Vogue cover that Melania Trump always wanted and said she will "never waste" her First Lady platform.
The doctor, wearing a floral Oscar de la Renta dress, will grace the cover of the fashion magazine for the August issue, out on July 20.
Biden was pictured this spring overlooking the South Lawn at the White House by photographer Annie Leibovitz.
A second image shows the First Lady in the Executive Residence's East Sitting Hall working at a laptop with a pencil in between her teeth.
A third shows Jill and Joe cuddling together after the president used the interview to say he "misses" his wife since taking office.
Jill made the cover after a four year hiatus that the magazine took on First Lady's – while Melania Trump held the role. Michelle Obama made the cover three times during her time in the White House.
Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour had called out Trump's "dishonesty," and "shocking lack of empathy" ahead of the 2020 election.
And when asked about Melania's fashion, Wintour pointedly spoke of the former First Lady.
She replied: "She [Michelle] was the best ambassador that this country could possibly have in many ways, obviously, way beyond fashion."
Biden also appeared to take aim at the Trumps, telling the magazine her husband is "just a calmer president," adding: "He lowers the temperature."
Vice President-elect Kamala Harris appeared on the cover of Vogue's February issue.
That cover was widely panned online with many complaining that the Vogue cover does not "do her justice."
As part of the profile was questioned about her current position, where she vowed to "never waste" the opportunity.
"When I became second lady — and there was so much I wanted to do — I always said, 'I will never waste this platform'," she said.
"… And now I have a bigger platform and I feel every day, like …. what could I give up? That I would want to give up? Nothing."
The president was also questioned as part of the profile, admitting he "misses" his wife, adding: "I'm really proud of her. But it's not like we can just go off like we used to."
And, despite grabbing the opportunity by the horns, Jill admitted that she felt anxious during the campaign.
"During the campaign, I felt so much anxiety from people; they were scared. When I travel around the country now, I feel as though people can breathe again," she said.
"I think that's part of the reason Joe was elected. People wanted someone to come in and heal this nation, not just from the pandemic, which I feel Joe did by, you know, getting shots in everybody's arms."
