Time magazine on Thursday unveiled a provocative new cover featuring a manipulated image of U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin morphed into one person.

The cover “is meant to represent this particular moment in US foreign policy, following the pair’s recent meeting in Helsinki, Finland,” Time said.

The July issue’s cover comes after the two leaders’ controversial summit in Helsinki, Finland, earlier this week.

Putin and Trump held a joint press conference after a one-on-one meeting on Monday, during which Trump disagreed with U.S. intelligence officials’ conclusion that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump’s statements and his refusal to confront Putin about election interference led to a backlash from Americans.
