WASHINGTON (AP) — Time magazine covers featuring Donald Trump that hung on the walls of at least four of the president’s golf clubs, in Florida, Virginia, Ireland and Scotland was removed after a closer inspection revealed the covers were false.

But closer inspection reveals that the cover is false.
The Washington Post investigated and reported Tuesday that Time had no magazine cover with the date listed — March 1, 2009 — nor had the publication featured Trump on its cover.
Is the president who railed against “fake news” as recently as Tuesday decorating his clubs with phony magazine covers?
A Time spokeswoman confirmed for the Post that the cover in question is not real. Representatives for the Trump Organization and the White House declined to comment.
It was unclear who produced the phony magazine cover, or why.
