The New York Daily News brutally contrasts Ivanka Trump's smiles in Jerusalem with Palestinian deaths

First daughter Ivanka Trump helped lead the American delegation to Israel to ceremonially open the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem on Monday, and while she unveiled the official plaque — with her father, President Trump's, name in a conspicuously large font — a few miles away, Israeli forces were firing live ammunition to keep Palestinian demonstrators from crossing into Israel from Gaza. By the end of the day, Israeli forces had killed 58 Palestinians and wounded more than 1,200 others, according to the Gaza Health Ministry, making it the bloodiest clash between Israel and Palestinians since 2014. The New York Daily News noticed incongruity between Ivanka's smiles and the Palestinian deaths and pointed it out on its cover, pretty brutally.

The Daily News' rival tabloid, the New York Post, went with a smiling Orthodox Jew giving a thumbs-up in front of a banner reading "Thank You President Trump."
