Time magazine's new cover has US and Russian influences - and it's taken the internet by storm

Donald Trump may have something to do with it…

Time magazine has created a new cover and, well, it’s got influence from both the US and Russia…

The cover – depicting a cross between the White House building and the famous St Basil’s Cathedral from just outside the Kremlin – is of course a nod towards US president Donald Trump’s highly controversial relationship with Russia.

The Trump campaign was being investigated by former FBI chief James Comey into alleged links to Russia before Trump fired him, an investigation which is ongoing.

Meanwhile, in the past week it was revealed Trump leaked highly classified information to Russian officials when they visited the US capitol.

The cover has caused quite a stir online.

Some found the image quite disturbing.

Others wanted to congratulate the outlet on their work.

Meanwhile, a few appeared to think the cover went too far.

And then a few others believed it just confirmed Trump’s view that mainstream media is “fake news”.

Also, some wanted to point out the building in Russia isn’t actually part of the Kremlin…
