The cover of the US magazine 303 magazine has been changed to read “America” after President Donald Trump tweeted that it is an insult to the memory of American soldiers who died in Afghanistan in a botched mission.
The magazine said it had changed the cover of its US edition on Thursday because Trump had been criticized over the controversy.
“President Trump tweeted out an insult that was directed at the memory and memory of our fallen troops.
He said we can never forget what happened there,” 303 said in a statement.
“We felt it was important to change the cover to reflect the sentiment of the President.”
The magazine’s website said it was aware of the tweet and was taking steps to address it.
“Our team is working to update our website to reflect this change and will update this article accordingly,” it said.
303 said it would remove Trump’s tweet on its website.
The company is the largest publisher of US publications in the US.
In March, Trump tweeted: “There is a new edition of 303 Magazine in the mail, I just got a new one.
And the cover says America.
The issue of 303 was launched in 1999.
It covers a wide range of topics including politics, business, sports, technology, technology news and entertainment.
303 has about 3,000 employees and was founded in 1998 by a group of business leaders.
303 magazine’s CEO, Dan Wertz, wrote in a recent profile in The Washington Post that the company has a “fierce independence” from Trump, and is “fearless in its pursuit of the truth”.
“It is the kind of fearless leadership that has helped make 303 one of the most trusted names in journalism,” he wrote.
303 president Dan Wirtz told Newsweek on Wednesday that the cover had been “taken very, very seriously”.
“This issue is a direct response to the President’s tweet.
It is a reflection of our deep commitment to freedom of expression and free thought,” he said.
Trump has been criticized for tweeting about the cover in recent days, with many Democrats saying he was using it to discredit the magazine.
“I don’t know if you saw the cover, but that was a tweet from the President of the United States, a big part of our country,” Rep. Joe Crowley, a New York Democrat, said on Fox News.
“That’s a very strong tweet from him.
He’s going to take credit for that.”
