The Trump administration's “zero-tolerance” policy, which has resulted in children being separated from their parents at the US-Mexico border, has been widely criticised and labelled as “cruel”.
Time magazine’s cover serves as the newest critic, and as you can see below, it doesn't hold back in its condemnation.
The image presents a towering President Trump, staring down at a now iconic image by photographer John Moore of a small girl crying while border agents search her mother.
The tiny, distraught figure looking up at the imposing Trump packs a powerful punch, questioning the lack of humanity shown by the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” border policy, and the families that are affected.
Yesterday, President Trump announced he had backed down on his separation policy of families at the US-Mexico border.
However, the surprising back track does not answer for the lack of empathy and compassion within the current Trump administration. And this Time cover manages to convey all of that in just three words: "Welcome to America."
