In the cover story, TIME examines the president's rhetoric and the ideals associated with it.

Getty Images photographer John Moore's photograph of the 2-year-old Honduran girl went viral this week amid worldwide outrage over the Trump administration's family separation policy.

Today's TIME cover juxtaposes a cutout photo of US president Trump in profile, with another cutout from a well-known image of a family being detained at the US-Mexico border. He took it during a ride-along with a Customs and Border Patrol agent on June 12.

The new cover features a picture of Trump looking down at a crying young migrant girl with the words "Welcome to America" in the background. That's when Moore snapped the now-famous photo.

"As a father myself, it was very hard for me to see these families detained, knowing that they would soon be split up", Moore told Getty's blog Foto. "I had to stop and take deep breaths", Moore told TIME Tuesday, describing his reaction to the scene of a two-year-old Honduran girl crying as her mother was being detained in McAllen, Texas. "All I wanted to do was pick her up".

President Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order aimed at halting the family separation policy.

"The test posed with Trump's "zero tolerance" policy is as much about our future as it is about the tragedy of the families separated by its implementation", Vick wrote for Time. "In the balance between the integrity of the USA border with Mexico and a parent's love for a child, where will we come down?"
