President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump admin to announce coronavirus vaccine will be covered under Medicare, Medicaid: report Election officials say they're getting suspicious emails that may be part of malicious attack on voting: report McConnell tees up Trump judicial pick following Supreme Court vote MORE's reelection campaign is using Time magazine's latest cover to raise funds.

A campaign email sent Tuesday afternoon attacks the magazine for its latest cover, which reads: “How Trump’s cabinet is dismantling government as we know it.”

"TIME Magazine thinks this is an ATTACK against me?" the email, signed by President Trump, asks. "Good! The federal government is a broken, lobbyist-infested cesspool of corruption that abuses its power, cooks deals for crooked politicians, and despises hardworking Americans."


Trump's voters, the campaign argues, want to see his administration "rebuild a new government" and dismantle the old one.

"America didn’t vote for the same old thing. You voted for a wrecking ball to obliterate the status quo and rebuild a new government OF, FOR, and BY the PEOPLE!"

Time's cover story, "While Trump Is Tweeting, These 3 People Are Undoing American Government as We Know It," explores the actions of three Trump Cabinet members: Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben CarsonBenjamin (Ben) Solomon CarsonTo end homelessness, follow the science Ben Carson attended indoor fundraiser where attendees didn't wear masks: report Building the Dream: We're in This Together MORE, Education Secretary Betsy DeVosElizabeth (Betsy) Dee DeVosHouse committee subpoenas Education Department staff over for-profit colleges DeVos says it isn't Department of Education's job to track schools' coronavirus reopening plans Judge calls Devos student loan forgiveness process 'disturbingly Kafkaesque' MORE and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott PruittEdward (Scott) Scott PruittOVERNIGHT ENERGY: EPA eases permitting for modifications to polluting facilities | Rocky Mountain National Park closed due to expanding Colorado wildfire | Trump order strips workplace protections from civil servants EPA eases permitting for modifications to polluting facilities Overnight Energy: Barrett punts on climate, oil industry recusals | Ex-EPA official claims retaliation in lawsuit | Dems seek to uphold ruling ousting Pendley MORE.

It also quotes ousted White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon, who said in February that the Cabinet appointees "were all selected for a reason. And that is the deconstruction."

Donald Trump Jr. tweeted similar thoughts about the Time cover when it was released last week.

"Love that @time thinks this is a negative for @realDonaldTrump as opposed to EXACTLY what his voters wanted. Thanks for acknowledging!" Trump Jr. said on Twitter.
