The New York Daily News posted a disturbing image Thursday, following the announcement by President Donald Trump that the U.S. will be withdrawing from the Paris climate accords. The publication tweeted: “Here’s Friday’s front page…TRUMP TO WORLD: DROP DEAD.”
Attached to the post is the image of their front page for Friday’s edition of the publication. It features the president’s face, but with only his eyes uncovered by print. The name of the publication is displayed across his forehead and the words “TRUMP TO WORLD: DROP DEAD” cover the lower part of President Trump’s face.

Reactions to the image are quickly mounting, with one follower tweeting: “If he stayed in the agreement the headline would have been Trump to base: screw you. It doesn’t matter what he does you will be negative.”

Another follower thinks those associated with the New York Daily News are mindless. Donna tweeted: “You’ve lost your minds.”

Not surprisingly, those who do not support President Trump’s decision area also weighing in, approving of the image. One tweeted, “Most importantly, Trump to America, ‘Drop Dead!'” and another, “The world will have an answer.”
Most importantly, Trump to America, “Drop Dead!”

One user even mocked the president’s son, Barron, who was reported to have been distressed to see the images of his fathers decapitated head released by Kathy Griffin earlier this week.
Don’t let Baron or any of Trump’s family see this front page …it could be distressing
