Philadelphia Newspaper Calls Out Trump Over Idea To Ban All Muslims From U.S.
The past few days have seen a series of provocative newspaper covers, and none more so than the Philadelphia Daily News‘ morning edition.
On the heels of Donald Trump’s latest controversial comments calling for a ban on all Muslim immigrants and tourists from entering the United States, the Daily News pulled no punches showing the world exactly that they think of The Donald and his plan.
Likening him to Adolph Hitler, the Daily News shows the current Republican presidential front-runner with his arm raised, a pose likened to the infamous Nazi salute. The headline plays on Hitler’s title as the German fuhrer, calling The Donald, “The New Furor.” The caption goes on to call Trump’s latest plan “hair-raising.”
Even Trump’s fellow Republican candidates believe he has gone too far this time. Many not even bothering to hide their contempt for Trump and his ideas.
Donald Trump is unhinged. His "policy" proposals are not serious.

I disagree with Donald Trump's latest proposal. His habit of making offensive and outlandish statements will not bring Americans together.

Today, The White House responded by stating that Trump’s inflammatory comments “disqualify him from serving as president.” Current Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, also condemned Trump’s comments, saying that they are “not who we are as a party” and calling them unconstitutional.
But all of the criticism is falling on deaf ears. As of Tuesday afternoon, Trump was standing by his proposal saying he didn’t care what Republicans think. And from what is known of Trump, it can be sure he doesn’t care what The White House thinks either.
