Twitter has refused to take down nude photos of Melania Trump posted on the social network.
The naked pictures were published by rapper Cardi B during a clash over her performance at the Grammys but Twitter says it does not violate the company’s terms of service.
Cardi posted a full-frontal nude snap of the former first lady during an argument with conservative commentator Candace Owens.
The image dates back to a 1996 photoshoot published in a French magazine before it resurfaced during the 2016 presidential campaign.
It had previously been shared on Twitter by Cardi in 2020 in a post that has since been removed.
Melania got dragged into the argument after Ms Owens criticised Cardi’s performance as the “corrosion” and “weakening of American society”.
The commentator said she took issue with the singer being used to encourage young women to “strip themselves of dignity”
Cardi responded with a nude photo of Melania along with the caption: “No! Candy, men treat women on how a woman allows a man to treat them.”
A second naked photo posted was lightly censored, with Cardi claiming: “I was just inspired by our former First Lady.”
Ms Owens then asked why the rapper was “obsessed” with the Trump family before Cardi said Melania was her idol.
She wrote: “She showed me I can be naked, perform WAP and still be a First Lady one day! Wait so only white women can be naked and show their sexuality and evolve in their 30s but I can’t?
“Wow, America is so unfair. To think this was the land of the free.”
Melania, who has kept a low profile since leaving the White House in January, has not spoken out on the nude picture upload.
