U.S. President Donald Trump, talking to CIA employees about being pictured on Time magazine covers, once noted that “I think we have the all-time record in the history of Time magazine.” In reality, Trump has been on the magazine’s cover 21 times, fast closing in on his predecessor in office. This year alone, he has added four covers – three consecutive in a row in June and July.
There are quite a few U.S. Presidents that come up more often than Trump when you take a minute to search the Time Cover Store. As the random selection of presidents in the infographic below shows, former President Richard Nixon made it on to the Time cover 43 Times. Obama had 23 covers dedicated to him.
