All hail King Trump.

US president, Donald Trump is on the June 18 cover of TIME. The latest issue is on the political attacks launched by White House on Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Trump is painted for the fourth time by TIME’s long-time collaborator, Tim O’Brien who has worked on over two dozen TIME covers since 1989 – which include editions featuring Pope Benedict XVI and Osama Bin Laden.

“This portrait of Trump gazing into a mirror and seeing a king gets to the heart of how he and his legal team have approached this past week and the past 500 days, actually,” the Brooklyn-based artist says on the latest issue. “Besides the usual challenge of the short deadline and making the image work, whether or not to have him looking at himself or looking at us was the thing I pondered most. His eye contact with each reader, each American fits the situation best.” Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States January 20, 2017, succeeding Barack Obama.
