Trump told to remove fake Time magazine cover from golf club

POSTED ON July 3, 2017 @ 10:01 pm

Time magazine has asked the Trump Organisation to remove a framed front cover featuring Donald Trump from several of its golf clubs after it was proven to be fake.

The cover, showing a presidential Mr Trump with his arms folded and steely-eyed, was framed and hung on the walls of at least four Trump courses in the US, Ireland and Scotland.

Dated March 1, 2009, the cover reads “Donald Trump: The ‘Apprentice’ is a television smash!”, with another headline stating: “TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS . . . EVEN TV!”

However, the Washington Post established that there was no March 1, 2009, issue of Time Magazine and Mr Trump did not feature on the cover at any time in 2009.

The Time issue dated March 2, 2009 featured Kate Winslet on the front following her Oscars success.

Time confirmed that the cover was a fake and stated it had requested the Trump Organisation stops using it.

The framed fake Trump cover was hung in two prominent positions at Mr Trump’s golf resort in Doral, Florida and in the member’s dining room at the Trump National Golf Club near Washington DC.
