The New York Daily News ripped into GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump with their Friday cover, targeting the billionaire businessman for having supporters in the Ku Klux Klan.
The tabloid plastered a member of the racist group on the front cover along with the headline, “TRUMP FOR PREZ. Ex-KKK leader: Vote for Donald, he’s just like us!”
Friday’s cover comes after former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke told his radio audience Thursday to support and vote for Trump. If you’re white and don’t vote for Trump, Duke alleged that you would be committing “treason against your heritage.”
“Voting for these people, voting against Donald Trump at this point is really treason to your heritage,” Duke said on his program, as first reported by Buzzfeed.
The New York Daily News has a history of publishing very controversial covers. In January, a cover was published with the headline, “Drop Dead Ted,” targeting Ted Cruz and his comments about Trump’s “New York values.”
And earlier in February, the Daily News twice targeted Trump, once for being a “clown” and a second time for being “brain dead.”
