With the cover line “The Summit Crisis”, the cover and accompanying story highlights Trump’s apparent cosiness with the Russian leader at last week’s meeting between the two leaders, at the expense of the US’s close NATO allies.

Time’s latest cover is the work of renowned visual artist Nancy Burson who said of her work: “What my work has always been about is allowing people to see differently. The combining of faces is a different way for people to see what they couldn’t see before.
“I think the best art can change people’s perception of how they see how they are as human beings,” she said. “Art makes everything possible and beyond.”
