(CNN) - Time magazine published an eye-catching cover Thursday aimed at the Trump presidency, with the White House being overtaken by Russian minarets. 

The new cover comes amid the escalating controversy over the Trump administration's relationship with Russia.

And it's a winking reference to the news earlier this week, when President Donald Trump reportedly disclosed sensitive information to Russian officials during an Oval Office meeting.

In the opening months of the administration, Time has rolled out a series of politically-focused covers that have featured the 45th president in a critical light.

Trump is known to value the magazine, having kept a stack of copies - mostly with him on the front - prominently displayed on his desk in Trump Tower.
