The front page of the New York Daily News invoked an anti-Nazi speech in a decidedly anti-Donald Trump cartoon on Wednesday.

The cover borrows language from the poem “First They Came” by Martin Niemöller, a Protestant pastor who was an outspoken opponent of Adolf Hitler.

The Daily News cover reads, “When Trump came for the Mexicans, I did not speak out — as I was not a Mexican. When he came for the Muslims, I did not speak out — as I was not a Muslim. Then he came for me…”

Here’s the cover:

The accompanying column was written by Max Paul Friedman, a history professor at American University specializing in 20th-century U.S. foreign relations.

This cover one-ups the Tuesday front-page of the Philadelphia Daily News, which depicted Trump as Adolf Hitler.
