The illustration was created by Nancy Burson, a visual artist. The image, according to Time, “is meant to represent this particular moment in U.S. foreign policy, following the pair’s recent meeting in Helsinki, Finland.”

“A year and a half into his presidency, Trump’s puzzling affinity for Putin has yet to be explained. Trump is bruised by the idea that Russian election meddling taints his victory, those close to him say, and can’t concede the fact that Russia did try to interfere in the election, regardless of whether it impacted the outcome,” Time wrote in its statement

This isn’t the first recent controversial Time cover featuring Trump, CNN reported.

Last month, the publication used a photo of Trump standing over a crying child to illustrate the plight of children and their parents who are being separated crossing the border from Mexico. 

The photo of the girl came under fire after it was learned that the child was not separated from her mother, CNN reported.
