Las Vegas Review-Journal endorsar Donald Trump

Donald Trump fick idag sitt första endorsement från en stor amerikansk tidning, närmare bestämt Las Vegas Review-Journal, vars redaktion skriver:

More and more Americans express frustration and disillusionment today with the political institutions that govern the nation.

... History tells us that agents for reform often generate fear and alarm among those intent on preserving their cushy sinecures. It’s hardly a shock, then, that the 2016 campaign has produced a barrage of unceasing vitriol directed toward Mr. Trump. But let us not be distracted by the social media sideshows and carnival clatter. Substantive issues are in play this November.

... Mr. Trump instead brings a corporate sensibility and a steadfast determination to an ossified Beltway culture. He advocates for lower taxes and a simplified tax code, in contrast to his opponent’s plan to extract another $1 trillion from the private economy in order to enlarge the bureaucracy. Mr. Trump understands and appreciates the conditions that lead to prosperity and job creation and would be a friend to small business and entrepreneurship. Mrs. Clinton has spent most of her adult life on the public payroll.

De fortsätter sedan att räkna upp fler saker där Trump är bättre än Clinton, och avslutar med att konstatera att båda kandidater har stora moraliska brister, men att man måste välja:

Mr. Trump 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.

Donald Trump for president.
