New York Post endorses Trump for president

The New York Post endorsed President TrumpDonald TrumpTrump State Department appointee arrested in connection with Capitol riot Intelligence community investigating links between lawmakers, Capitol rioters Michelle Obama slams 'partisan actions' to 'curtail access to ballot box' MORE for reelection in an editorial on Monday, saying it would result in "explosive job creation, rising wages and general prosperity" and would "really tick off Hollywood."

"We can return to the explosive job creation, rising wages and general prosperity we had before the pandemic. We can have economic freedom and opportunity, and resist cancel culture and censorship. We can put annus horribilis, 2020, behind us and make America great again, again. We can do all this — if we make the right choice on Nov. 3," the right-leaning publication argued.

"Biden would open the border floodgates again, and by all appearances would go back to 'normalization' with China — a byword for them eating our lunch," the Post also wrote, regarding Democratic presidential nominee Joe BidenJoe BidenTrump State Department appointee arrested in connection with Capitol riot FireEye finds evidence Chinese hackers exploited Microsoft email app flaw since January Biden officials to travel to border amid influx of young migrants MORE.


The Post earlier this month published a series of controversial reports on Biden's son Hunter Biden, upon which the president and his allies have focused in the closing days of the campaign.

The newspaper initially wrote that it had obtained emails showing Hunter Biden arranged a meeting between his father, who was serving as vice president at the time, and a Ukrainian businessman. The report's sourcing and accuracy have since been questioned. Twitter blocked the article, while Facebook said it would be suppressed while third-party fact-checkers analyzed it.

"President Trump will not be looking to remake the country. He will trust that America will, given support but not interference, bounce back. He will, in short, not get in the way. Re-electing him is the best choice for the United States," the Post wrote in its endorsement on Monday. "Plus, it’ll really tick off Hollywood."
