FACT CHECK

The claim that Time magazine mocked Trump on its cover is false.

NewsMeter searched on the timeline of Time magazine, "The Vault" and found no such cover.

Furthermore, the viral picture does not match with Time's layout. Upon observation, it was found that the magazine has a style of mentioning the date of issue on the top right-hand side and also, "time.com" at the bottom right-hand corner. None of these are mentioned in the viral image.

Evidently, the claim that Time magazine mocked Donald Trump on its cover is false.
