Sorry to break the news, but Donald Trump has no plans to recreate his 1990 Playboy cover anytime soon.

The Republican presidential frontrunner told Boston Herald Radio’s “Morning Meeting” show today that he rejected a recent offer to be featured in the iconic men's magazine, lamenting that "its not the same Playboy."


Earlier this month, Playboy announced it will no longer feature nude models.

"Maybe I'll pass," Trump said of his most recent offer.

Trump bragged that he was "one of the few men ever on the cover of Playboy," calling it "somewhat of an honor," before revealing that the magazine had recently approached him about another article.


"In those days," Trump explained, "that was the hottest thing you could do. And today it is a little bit of a different deal."

Listen to Trump break Playboy fans' hearts. His comments begin at around the 25:30 mark:
