The New York Times yielded to growing international pressure Thursday and announced they would be taking “disciplinary steps” against the editor that approved a vicious anti-Semitic cartoon featuring President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The Times confirmed the paper is “taking disciplinary steps with the production editor who selected the cartoon for publication,” adding staffers will take “unconscious bias training to ensure it includes a direct focus on anti-Semitism.”

The cartoon depicts Netanyahu as a dog wearing a Star-of-David leash held by a blind President Trump.
