    A framed portrait of President Donald Trump on the cover of a TIME Magazine hanging from a column in the Champions Sports Bar & Grill at the Trump National Doral Miami, in Doral, Florida June 24, 2017.

    A Time magazine cover featuring Donald Trump hangs on the walls of at least four of the president's golf clubs, in Florida, Virginia, Ireland and Scotland.

    But closer inspection reveals that the March 1, 2009, cover is false.

    The Washington Post investigated and reported Tuesday that Time had no magazine cover with that date, nor had the publication featured Trump on its cover at any time in 2009.

    At 5 p.m. Tuesday, a spokeswoman for Time said that the magazine had asked the Trump Organization to remove the phony cover from the walls where it was on display, according to an update to the Post story.

    Is the president who railed against "fake news" as recently as Tuesday decorating his clubs with phony magazine covers?

    Representatives for the Trump Organization and the White House declined to comment.

    It was unclear who produced the phony magazine cover, or why.
