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

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.
