The New York Post has endorsed Donald Trump for president, but for two days now, it seems the paper is literally trying to win over new supporters with raw sex appeal.
Before she married the mogul, Melania Trump had a successful career as a supermodel. It seems that the Post decided to capitalize on that by printing quite the raunchy photo for their Sunday front page.

The photo was taken by photographer Alé de Basseville and it appeared in the 1996 issue in the now defunct French men’s periodical, Max Magazine. Melanie Trump (then Knauss) was 25 during the photo shoot, and the Post released a piece that featured commentary from de Basseville and Trump.
“This was a picture taken for a European magazine prior to my knowing Melania,” Trump said. “In Europe, pictures like this are very fashionable and common.”
While the photo is certain to draw mixed reactions due to public feelings about both Trump and erotic photos, the Post decided to release another old photo from Mrs. Trump’s career on Monday morning. This shows the potential First Lady lying in a bed with Scandinavian model Emma Ericsson in what appears to be a photograph themed on same-sex sexual arousal.
