The paper publishes devil-inspired image of GOP presidential candidate
The New York Daily News has once again targeted Donald Trump.
This time, the cover of the tabloid paper is decorated with a devil-inspired image of the GOP presidential candidate labeled “Anti Christ!”
“Pope calls out hateful Trump: ‘A person who thinks only about building walls & not bridges is NOT CHRISTIAN,” the subhead reads.
The paper recently caused a stir when it labeled Trump supporters as “mindless zombies” and has regularly used cover art with Trump in clown paint.
CNN’s Jake Tapper told TheWrap that these type of headlines “are business decisions that they are making, not journalistic decisions” and that, “journalistically to attack people who support a candidate is the very height of elitism.”
The drama between Trump and the Pope started yesterday when the pontiff said that Trump is “not a Christian” due to his plans to build a wall along the Mexican border. Trump issues a statement in response and eventually told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that he doesn’t like fighting with the Pope during last night’s GOP Town Hall.
“He’s got an awfully big wall at the Vatican,” Trump said. “I don’t like fighting with the Pope.”
