The New York Daily News’s front page featured an image of Donald Trump with clown makeup, a broken crown and a frown on Wednesday.

“The clown who plays king can’t overthrow the bedrock values this nation was founded on 242 years ago today,” the headline reads.

The article the front page image was referencing was an opinion piece by the editorial board titled, “Our immigrants, ourselves: What Trump can’t take away from this great nation.”

“President Trump’s cruelty in deflecting entry of desperate migrants feeling violence coincides with measures to choke legal channels for immigration, drying up needed fresh vigor for America before our eyes,” the article said.

It concluded by saying, “The [president] who plays king won’t conquer the bedrock values this nation was founded on.”

The New York Daily News featured another anti-Trump cover last week, depicting him as a judge with thee headline “We Are F*#’D,” in reference to the resignation of Justice Anthony Kennedy. (RELATED: NEW YORK DAILY NEWS ON KENNEDY’S RETIREMENT: ‘WE ARE F*#’D’)
