Trump lands first major newspaper endorsement
“Make no mistake, a Hillary Clinton administration would indulge the worst instincts of the authoritarian left and continue to swell the bloated regulatory state while running the nation deeper into the red in pursuit of ‘free’ college and health care,” it argued.
Trump called the newspaper a “good paper” when giving a shout-out to Adelson during a speech in Nevada in October.
The paper acknowledged Saturday that “Trump’s impulsiveness and overheated rhetoric alienate many voters” and that he “represents neither the danger his critics claim nor the magic elixir many of his supporters crave.”
“But he promises to be a source of disruption and discomfort to the privileged, back-scratching political elites for whom the nation’s strength and solvency have become subservient to power’s pursuit and preservation,” it said.
