PIC: TIME Magazine's latest cover depicting Trump and Putin's relationship is powerful stuff

They've done it again.

TIME Magazine are never ones to shy away from putting controversial messages on their front cover.

In the past they have depicted Trump in stormy weather, a sly dig at his affair with the porn star Stormy Daniels, while also representing the chaos that has been his presidency so far.

More recently, they have shown him looking down at one of the children who was separated from their parents at one of America's immigration centres.

The magazine have shown that they are never afraid to confront Trump when they see fit.

And the cover of their July issue is no different.

The magazine cover that was released on Thursday morning shows Donald Trump's face morphing into Vladimir Putin's, emphasising the lack of differences between the two characters.

Following Trump's meeting with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, the American President has come under a lot of criticism for the way the he handled the occasion.

Trump categorically denied the possibility that Russia may have interfered in the election, to the outrage of a number of Americans.

In particular, it was his press conference afterwards that was most heavily criticised, with former presidential candidate John McCain, saying: "Today's press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by a president in memory."
