Newsweek recalled thousands of special edition “Madame President” magazines on Wednesday after they were prematurely shipped out to newsstands across the U.S. before election results rolled in.
Topix Media, the Newsweek partner that published the magazine, rushed the “President Trump” version of the issue to print on Thursday. It is expected to hit stands next week, according to the New York Post.

The publisher had designed both Trump and Clinton commemorative issues in advance, but only the version declaring victory for the Democratic nominee was shipped out when polls overwhelmingly showed her ahead.
