Fire, brimstone and... tacky high-end luxury properties? 

The New York Daily News fired a new salvo in its ongoing war of words with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, calling the real estate magnate "ANTI CHRIST" on its front page. 

An image of Trump was also doctored to surround him with flames and to give him devilishly red and scaly skin. 

The cover referred to this week's spat between Trump and Pope Francis. The pontiff said Trump was "not Christian" because of his proposal to build a wall to keep out refugees.

"A person who only thinks about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian," Pope Francis said. 

Trump fired back, calling the Bishop of Rome's comments "disgraceful" and saying Mexico was using him as a "pawn."

 

Editor's Note: Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist, birther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims -- 1.6 billion members of an entire religion -- from entering the U.S.
