The New York Daily News Cover on Ivanka Trump’s Trip to Israel: ‘Daddy’s Little Ghoul’
The New York Daily News, one of President Donald Trump‘s hometown tabloids, skewered Ivanka Trump with a brutal cover on Tuesday that blasted the first daughter for her celebration of the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem.
As a smiling Ivanka took photos in front of the new embassy, bearing a large plaque with Trump’s name splashed across it, she was joined husband Jared Kushner and other U.S. officials including Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.
Meanwhile, around 50 miles away Palestinian protestors at the Israel-Gaza border armed with flaming kites and rocks were fired upon by Israeli security forces. Dozens of Palestinians were shot and killed, and more were injured.
The Daily News, never a tabloid to pull its punches, released this cover in response to the violence — declaring Ivanka Trump “Daddy’s Little Ghoul”:

The stark contrast drew condemnation from the media, particularly after the White House pinned blame for the mass shooting of Palestinians squarely on the protestors themselves.
White House spokesman Raj Shah said during Monday’s press briefing that the violence “rests squarely with Hamas” for “intentionally and cynically provoking” Israel by calling on Palestinians to attempt to breach the border.
