The New York Daily News nails it again with a provocative cover of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump depicted as a Daesh terrorist beheading the Statue of Liberty.

Above the audacious cartoon the caption 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..."

The eerie language is a variation of the anti-Nazi poem “First They Came” by Martin Niemöller, a Protestant pastor who publicly criticized Adolf Hitler.

The accompanying column was written by Max Paul Friedman, a history professor at American University and author of Nazis and Good Neighbors.

Friedman writes that Trump’s contentious statements and proposals are “nowhere near the Nazis' plans for a Final Solution,” yet the sentiment is ominously similar to the initial actions the Nazis took when first coming into power.
