The New York Post is tossing its endorsement behind President Donald Trump as there are only eight days left until the Nov. 3 election.
“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 Post wrote on Monday.
It added, “The New York Post endorses President Donald J. Trump for re-election.”
The Post writes, “He championed lowering the corporate tax rate to a figure more in line with the rest of the industrialized world.” It also wrote later, “Trump also rejected the globalist axiom that trade deals and unfettered immigration were better for Americans.”
Touching on the confirmation hearings of Judge Amy Coney Barrett, the Post writes:
“Most importantly, throughout his time in office and culminating with the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett, Trump’s judicial appointments promise to curb the leftward shift of the courts and the activism that Democrats have come to count on. The left has achieved through legal decisions what it couldn’t through legislation.”
The tabloid later adds, “The question is what matters more: words or actions? The media are enormously fixated on Trump’s tweets and extemporaneous remarks, never learning the lesson that most of the time, he is just riffing. In endorsing him, we’re choosing to focus on President Trump’s actions and accomplishments. He has kept his promises.”
It also called Democratic presidential Joe Biden “a figurehead candidate for the Democratic Party.”
The Post wrote:
“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.
Plus, it’ll really tick off Hollywood.”
The Post’s endorsement of Trump follows after Biden has received endorsements by other publications.
The USA Today made its first-ever endorsement, tossing support behind Biden, as IJR previously reported on.
“Now, two weeks until Election Day, we suggest you consider a variation of the question Republican Ronald Reagan asked voters when he ran for president in 1980: Is America better off now than it was four years ago?” USA Today’s editorial board wrote.
On breaking tradition, the op-ed read, “If this were a choice between two capable major party nominees who happened to have opposing ideas, we wouldn’t choose sides.”
