TIME Magazine has released another bizarre cover featuring President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin’s faces morphed into one.

The cover comes as the two leaders met in Helsinki, Finland, for what has been viewed as a controversial summit.
President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin held a press conference after their bilateral meeting in which Trump appeared to deny any substantive Russian wrong-doing during the 2016 election. His failure to do so was met with nasty bipartisan backlash at home.
Trump attempted to walk back the comments made during the press conference by claiming he meant to say he had no reason to believe it “wouldn’t” be Russia, as opposed to him actually saying he had no reason to believe it “would” be.
This is not the first instance in which TIME has used their cover to take shots at the President. Just last month, TIME released the famously debunked cover depicting President Trump staring down an immigrant toddler in response to media backlash regarding the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance border policy.

TIME also released a cover depicting Trump as a king.
