The magazine says "Now the president is on his own"

US magazine Time has Donald Trump on its latest cover.

While bearing a striking resemblance to a February 2017 version, this one shows the president at his desk surrounded by rising water.

Commenting on the new cover, the magazine says: "Donald Trump relied on Michael Cohen to weather the storm. Now the president is on his own".

This refers to his personal lawyer, who had his office raided by the FBI earlier this week.

The operation is said to have been 'in part' the result of a 'referral' by Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Asked about the raids at the White House, Mr Trump told reporters: "It's a disgrace. It's frankly a real disgrace. It's an attack on our country in a true sense. It's an attack on what we all stand for.

"When I saw this, and when I heard it - I heard it like you did - I said this is really now in a whole new level of unfairness."

But Time says: "Trump got the legal facts of the raids wrong - they had been conducted under warrants approved by a federal judge–but clearly appreciated the magnitude of the moment."

"The raids were reportedly related to alleged payments by Trump's personal lawyer and longtime fixer, Michael Cohen, to the pornographic film actor Stephanie Clifford, who performs as Stormy Daniels".

She claims to have had a consensual affair with Trump in 2006.
