Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin’s meeting was a few days ago, but people are still talking about it. The press conference, which was held in Helsinki, Finland, left many Americans enraged with the American President. Joe Walsh called it “an absolute disgrace.”
People called Trump a traitor after he didn’t get on America’s side and said that he believed Putin’s word that Russia didn’t meddle in the election. Many were “disgusted” by his words and Time magazine has created its powerful response as well.
The “creepy” cover
The magazine’s latest cover featured Donald Trump’s face slowly morphing into the face of the Russian President. The article dedicated to the press conference bears a teasing headline "The Summit Crisis."
The image was the creation of a visual artist Nancy Burson, and it meant to represent the particular moment following the meeting of “two of the world’s most recognizable men.”
Burson work has been featured in TIME’s 100 Photographs – a collection of the most influential photographs in the world. She is also famously known for developing a face-aging method, which helps FBI to find missing children.
The magazine with the thought-provoking cover is set to be released on July 30th.
Twitter world is divided

You act like he had a choice in this. This summit has been guaranteed since he asked Russia for help on TV.— Sam Shannon (@realsamshannon) July 19, 2018
