Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin have had an interesting relationship these past two years. The president America and the leader Russia met at the Helsinki Summit this past week, and Trump made some questionable comments. Trump seemingly sided with Russia, and agreed that the country had nothing to do with the 2016 presidential elections. His comments shocked both Republicans and Democrats, and was seen as a traitorous move since US intelligence agencies have confirmed that Russia used several methods to influence the minds American voters.
For the second time in two months, TIME magazine has decided to feature Trump on their cover.

He views this problem entirely through a political lens, these people say, unable or unwilling to differentiate between the question whether his campaign colluded with Russia—which he denies—and the question whether Russia attempted to influence the election.”
