The magazine released the would-be cover, titled "The First" and created by artist Malika Favre, on its website Wednesday after the release of Clinton's new memoir -- "What Happened" -- and New Yorker editor David Remnick's interview with the former first lady and secretary of state.

Trump’s victory obviously trumped that cover idea. Instead, the magazine ran a cover illustrated by artist Bob Staake called “The Wall,” a reference to Trump’s campaign promises to curb immigration and build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
