The New York Post recently ran a front page featuring a nude photo of Donald Trump’s wife, Melania. And while you would think – at least leading up to the presidential election – that it’d be a tasteless move, Donald Trump seems rather proud.

The tabloid newspaper ran the image alongside the caption ‘The Ogle Office,’ promising photos of Melania ‘like you’ve never seen her before’.

The photos, taken in 1995 when Melania was 25 years old, were published a year later in French magazine Max, two years before she met Trump, RT reports.

The decision to run the article and front page left the Internet pretty appalled, with many saying it was ‘tasteless’.

Not only did The Post feature Melania full frontal on its cover, it also featured several other racy photos from the 1995 photoshoot.

Trump and his campaign seem less concerned about the images, though.

Speaking to The Post, Trump said the photos were taken before he knew Melania, RT reports, and noted that ‘in Europe, pictures like this are very fashionable and common’.

Have you ever been to Europe, Donald?

Trump’s senior communications advisor, Jason Miller, even went one step further and defended the photos.

During an interview with CNN on Sunday, he described them as ‘a celebration of the human body as art,’ and added: “There’s nothing to be embarrassed about. She’s a beautiful woman.”

If nothing else, this year’s presidential race definitely takes the cake for most interesting and controversial.
