New York Daily News front-page cover drives a final nail into Trump's turbulent week overseas

new york daily news saturday july 14 cover

  • The New York Daily News took a rhetorical shot at President Donald Trump’s performance at the NATO summit and his first official visit to the UK this week, in a cheeky front-page cover.
  • It reads: “Hack of a job, Donny!” with an image of the “Trump baby” blimp that was at the center of anti-Trump protests in the UK this week. The cover shows Russian President Vladimir Putin holding onto that Trump effigy with a string.
  • The cover is set for publication on Saturday, two days ahead of Trump’s summit with Putin in Finland.
  • The phrase “Hack of a job,” is a reference to the Department of Justice indictments of 12 Russian agents that were announced on Friday. Those agents are accused of hacking Democratic Party organizations during the 2016 US election.

President Donald Trump’s tumultuous week overseas — from his performance at the NATO summit, to his first official visit to the UK — received a less-than-glowing critique from the New York Daily News on Friday evening.

The publication previewed its Saturday cover with the headline, “Hack of a job, Donny,” featuring the infamous “Trump baby” blimp that was at the center of anti-Trump protests in the UK.

On the cover, the Russian President Vladimir Putin is seen holding that Trump effigy by a string. Trump is scheduled to attend a summit with Putin in Finland on Monday.

The phrase “Hack of a job,” is a reference to the Department of Justice indictments of 12 Russian agents that were announced on Friday. Those agents are accused of hacking Democratic Party organizations during the 2016 US election, as part of a Kremlin-coordinated effort to help get Trump elected.

Following the news of those indictments, some lawmakers have urged Trump to cancel his one-on-one meeting with Putin. The White House said the summit will go on as planned.
