 Latest reports were swirling that a framed copy of Time Magazine was being displayed in four of President Donald Trump's golf clubs. In the said issues of the magazine, Trump was on the cover but it was just confirmed that those were fake.

Time Magazine's cover of Donald Trump was very controversial in the past days since there were claims saying that this was fake. In the said cover, a picture of Trump can be seen with the big headline: "Donald Trump: The Apprentice is a television smash". Aside from the mentioned headline, another one follows it which reads: "TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS . . . EVEN TV".

The Washington Post reported that the said controversial cover of Time Magazine is dated March 1, 2009 and it featured a very impressive career of Donald Trump even before becoming the president of the United States. That's why for anyone who happens to see the said framed copy in any of his golf clubs, this gives them the thinking that Trump had been the man who mattered.

But what made this Time Magazine cover controversial was that it was not after all true. This means that the said cover and issue did not even exist at all. According to the said international publication, there was no March 1, 2009 issue of their magazine. Furthermore, they claimed that there was no issue in 2009 in which Donald Trump was the cover.

Before it was claimed and proven that the magazine cover of Donald Trump was fake, one reporter already observed that it contained a lot of mistakes only that they were too small to be noticed. It was said that the border is skinnier compared to that of the red border of Time magazine.

Apart from those observations, no thin white border can be seen beside the red border. The secondary headline also looked malicious since it got stacked on the right side and supposedly, it should be located at the top. Lastly, the headlines have exclamation points here, in fact, a headline should not yell.

Meanwhile, Kerri Chyka, a spokeswoman for Time Inc. confirmed and verified that the Time Magazine cover featuring Donald Trump is not in fact real. It can be recalled that Trump accused the said publication before for producing fake news but how come it looks like the opposite with the controversy.
