Time asks Trump Organization to remove fake cover from golf clubs

"I can confirm that this is not a real TIME cover", Kerri Chyka, a spokeswoman for Time Inc., wrote in an email to The Washington Post. Trump also seems to have a particular fascination with how many times he has been on the cover of Time magazine, stating incorrectly in January that he had been featured a record 14 or 15 times.

A framed, fake cover of Time Magazine featuring President Donald Trump has been prominently hung and displayed in at least four of Trump's golf clubs.

There was no March 1, 2009, TIME Magazine, and on top of that, Trump was not featured on any of the publication's covers in all of 2009.

The secondary headlines are placed on the wrong part of the page, and the world famous magazine never uses exclamation marks on the cover.

The cover, which declares: "Donald Trump: The "Apprentice" is a television smash!", was spotted at two locations inside Trump's resort in Doral, Florida; hanging in the dining room of the Trump golf course in Loudon County, Virginia, and at golf resorts in Ireland and Scotland, the Post reported.

Eid-ul-fitr has a particular Salat (Islamic prayer) and is usually, offered, in an open field by the Muslim communities. Which is why, Eid al-Fitr this year was no exception.

It's entirely unclear how the cover came into being, or whether Trump himself is aware it's a fake.

In fact the cover on display at Trump's clubs, observed recently by a reporter visiting one of the properties, contains several small but telling mistakes. White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders declined to say whether Trump had known the cover wasn't real.

Trump has often touted his consistent Time cover appearances.

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.

"So you tell me which is more important, real estate or politics, OK?" Former President Richard Nixon actually holds that title, appearing on the cover 55 times. He has kept stacks of magazines with his image on the cover on his desk in NY for years, and continued the habit at the White House.
