Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour speaks openly about the Trump family

Note: The above video is from December, when Anna Wintour met with then-President-elect Donald Trump.

Back in February, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour asserted that she "can't imagine" her magazine featuring First lady Melania Trump on a cover at some point -- and she hasn't changed her mind.

In a new interview with The Business of Fashion (Part 1 and Part 2) published on Wednesday, Wintour spoke her mind about the new administration, shared her thoughts on Ivanka and affirmed her commitment to cover politics in the same way Vogue has throughout its longtime existence.

Despite being a passionate Hillary Clinton supporter -- and being part of Vogue's groundbreaking endorsement of the Democratic candidate last October -- Wintour makes it clear that she has no time for sulking.

"... There's no point about whining or complaining or screaming," Wintour says of Trump being elected president. "The country voted. So what can we do now to be most helpful and to also stand up for what we believe in?"

In defending her decision to have then-President-elect Donald Trump visit the Vogue office in December (she calls it "a very natural thing for [the magazine] to do"), she also went on to discuss Ivanka's relationship with the publication, saying, "Ivanka has had a long history with the magazine, and I have respect for Ivanka and everything that she has achieved."

The first daughter has been a longtime attendee of Vogue's annual Met Gala (so have Donald and Melania), hosted by Wintour herself. However, rumor has it that Ivanka is "too busy" for the affair this year. And while the editor-in-chief affirmed that she hasn't changed her mind about eventually featuring FLOTUS Melania on a cover, she admits there are currently no plans in the works:

"We always photograph or cover in some way the first ladies, so as I've said before, I can't imagine that we wouldn't at some point cover the first lady, but we've got nothing planned right now."
