Trump clubs display fake Time cover, magazine asks for their removal

In fact, a quick search of Time's catalog shows that an edition was never published on March 1, 2009, as the cover states.

"Donald Trump: The "Apprentice" is a television smash!" is the big-print headline, with "TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS". And the real cover from that time period featured actress Kate Winslett.

Still, the covers do make for some consistency across Trump's properties; they fit right in with the photos of himself from various news sources reportedly covering his office at Trump Tower.

Kerri Chyka, a representative of Time, confirmed it is not a real Time Magazine cover.

The cover looked at little off, and after some quick sleuthing it was discovered that it was a fake. The Washington Post, which first reported the story, said the mock-up had been displayed in two spots at the billionaire's resort in Doral, outside Miami.

The Post said the cover adorned the walls of several of the president's golf clubs, including Mar-a-Lago, in Florida, where Trump has spent many of his weekends since inauguration.

But Mr Trump only appeared on the cover of Time once before his presidential run, in January 1989.

The Trump administration declined to respond to questions on the cover, and the designer of the cover remains unknown.

The phony issue is dated March 1, 2009, but there was no issue of Time in that year that had Trump on the cover.

Several photos of the cover hanging in various clubs began to surface on Twitter today. The fake cover also features a fake UPC code, the same fake code used as an example in a 2010 tutorial on how to Photoshop to fake a Time magazine cover.

Time has asked the Trump Organization to take them down.

"We couldn't comment on the decor at Trump golf clubs one way or another", White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee told the paper. That type of artistic quality and creativity is not typically seen in fake covers, which usually feature stock imagery or lower-quality portraits. Richard Nixon appeared on it 55 times.
