The magazine, published on Thursday, shows the White House being overtaken by Russian onion domes.

The artwork dominates the cover, as the magazine opted not to include a headline for the first time in more than a decade. The landmarks's red bricks also cover more than half of the DC building.

The magazine cover follows a week of news leaks and allegations surrounding the White House.

Mr Trump is "frustrated" and "angry" at the performance of his White House staff, it has been reported, and is threatening to purge large numbers in a "huge reboot".

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

Michael Flynn and other advisers contacted people with Kremlin ties during the last seven months of the campaign, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the exchanges. The accompanying story, "Inside Russia's social media war on America" explores Russia's interference and influence on the 2016 presidential election, the backstory of Russia's hack on Twitter accounts of US Defence Department staff and how US intelligence officials are working to tackle this attack. Last week, former FBI Director James Comey was sacked by Trump amid reports he sought to expand the investigation and, on Wednesday, the Department of Justice appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to oversee its probe.

The cover has caused quite a stir online. Within hours after the TIME magazine on Wednesday named the Donald Trump as Person of the Year 2016, Twitteratis started spotting what could have been an unintentional devil's horn on Trump's head on TIME magazine cover.
