"The cover dated March 1st, 2009 features an image of Mr Trump and the headline: "'The Apprentice' is a television smash!". The 2 March 2009 issue, however, featured Kate Winslet on the cover. "Even when he was just a reality-TV star, Trump was the kind of star who got a cover story in Time".
"The Time cover is a fake".
It was also spotted at Mar-a-Lago, the Florida estate Trump often visits when he's not at the White House.
The fake cover was initially identified by a reporter visiting one of Trump's golf clubs.
Trump - or his likeness - has been featured on the cover of Time 14 times, according to the magazine, including the December 19, 2016 issue naming him Person of the Year.
A member of staff at the Scottish resort told the newspaper the cover had been removed from the club's Duel in the Sun Pub.
This whole debacle has caused an uproar of laughter around the world, as the man who has seemingly declared war on the Fake News media, is caught using Fake News. SAD!
Since the 2016 campaign, Trump has repeatedly used the term "fake news" largely for any coverage criticizing him or his allies.
It's also interesting Trump would include a fake headline about real environmental problems on his fake magazine cover. In fact, prior to running for president, Trump was on the cover of Time once in 1989.
