President Donald Trump has a fake Time Magazine cover of himself framed and hung in at least four of his golf clubs around the world.
The Time magazine cover uses headlines such as “Donald Trump: The ‘Apprentice’ is a television smash!” and “TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS…EVEN TV!” Thus far, the cover has been spotted in at least four of the Trump Organization’s 17 worldwide golf clubs, according to The Washington Post.
“I can confirm that this is not a real TIME cover,” spokeswoman Kerri Chyka told WaPo.
A reporter recently noticed that some things were off about the magazine cover after visiting one of the courses and noting several small but important mistakes. “Its red border is skinnier than that of a genuine Time cover, and, unlike the real thing, there is no thin white border next to the red,” wrote WaPo reporter David Fahrenthold. “The Trump cover’s secondary headlines are stacked on the right side, on a real Time cover, they would go across the top.”
A bartender at Trump’s golf club in Scotland said that they recognized the picture, but added that it had been recently removed. Similarly, the Ireland golf course reported that the cover in their establishment was moved from a restaurant area to a manager’s office.
“We couldn’t comment on the decor at Trump Golf clubs one way or another,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said regarding the fake covers.
