The White House admitted Thursday that the president acquiesced to China’s request to silence journalists during a joint-press conference with President Xi Jinping. During state visits, the Chinese government typically asks The White House not to allow the press to ask questions, but U.S. presidents insist upon it to demonstrate their commitment to American freedoms.

Trump, the leader of the free world, is the first president since George H.W. Bush to roll over to the Chinese request and not take questions from reporters during his state visit to China.

A 'faked' image imo but lots of symbolism meanings in image created with photoshop or some other expensive imaging product. An actual camera would have to be extremely zoomed in just to show all details if taking an actual photo of what is on the cover.
