Trump Organization Asked To Remove Fake Time Magazine Cover Featuring Donald Trump

The image shows Trump against a black background with the headline "Donald Trump: The "Apprentice" is a television smash!"

The magazine cover, dated March 1, 2009, features Trump with his arms folded and wearing one of his signature suits and red tie, with the headlines: "TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS".

Titanic star Kate Winslet featured on the front of Time on March 2, 2009.

Kerri Chyka, a spokeswoman for Time Inc confirmed to the Post that the Trump cover was not real and was never published.

President Donald Trump has been on the cover of Time Magazine plenty of times since entering the American political fray.

According to the Washington Post, it can be seen hanging on the walls of at least four Trump golf clubs, including Trump's resort in Doral.

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.

As yet, it is also unknown who placed the fake Time covers up in Trump's golf clubs. Also the Trump cover's secondary headlines are stacked on the right side of the cover.

The issue in question is dated March 1, 2009, despite the fact that there wasn't actually an issue of Time released that day. The covers were removed from the clubs in Ireland and Scotland.

It's unclear who created the fake cover or why.

The Post noted that Trump had actually only been featured on the magazine's cover once before entering politics, in January 1989, when he was known as a NY business mogul.

And this isn't the first time the president has been mixed up with a doctored copy of Time.

The problem? The Time Magazine cover hanging at his golf clubs is a fake.

Since the 2016 campaign, Trump has repeatedly used the term "fake news" largely for any coverage criticizing him or his allies. In 2014, Time noted that an earlier U.S. president had appeared a whopping 55 times. However, White House spokeswoman, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, did respond to the Post via email.
