The New York Post, founded by Alexander Hamilton in 1801, prides itself as the nation’s oldest continuously published daily newspaper.
And they just endorsed President Donald Trump.
The endorsement comes just a few weeks after the paper released a bombshell report highlighting Hunter Biden’s foreign business escapades and his father’s involvement in making millions from Communist China.
With only 8 days until the election, the Post declared that Trump is the right and only candidate to “make America great again, again,” emphasizing several of the president’s accomplishments over the last four years.
“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,” the Post said. “We can put annus horribilis, 202, behind us and make America great again, again. We can do all this – if we make the right choice on Nov. 3.”
In a time of economic recovery following the coronavirus shut down, the Post praised the president’s economic successes.
“Elections are always about the economy, but never more so than this year. So a reminder: Until the necessary shutdown to fight the coronavirus, the unemployment rate stood at 3.5 percent, the lowest in a half-century,” the Post said.
“African American unemployment was 6.8 percent, the lowest figure since 1972. Adults out of the workforce for years found new prospects; for 17 months of Trump’s term, there were 1 million more job openings than people unemployed,” the board wrote. “That drove up salaries. For the first time in a decade, wage growth exceeded 3% year-over-year. It also narrowed the wealth gap.”
While commending Trump for “trusting the free market,” the Post also cautioned that Biden “would be beholden to a socialist left that sees an opportunity to remake the nation in its vision, one more dependent on government debt.”
Biden’s campaign, as well as the left-wing media, have tried their hardest to make this election solely about the coronavirus.
And while pushing the narrative that the pandemic is entirely Trump’s fault, “it’s unclear he’d do anything different except trigger new lockdowns – a strategy the WHO now discourages.”
The Post broke free of the media groupthink to say that the president’s handling of the virus “undoubtedly saved lives” and that “we are likely to have a vaccine in the coming months…thanks to the ‘warp speed’ policy instituted by the White House.”
Despite the media’s fixation on the president’s public remarks, policies and especially his tweets, the Post is “choosing to focus on President Trump’s actions and accomplishments,” emphasizing that “he has kept his promises.”
“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 proclaimed.
“Plus, it’ll really tick off Hollywood.”
This is the first time the Post has endorsed President Trump, according to The Hill. In 2016, the paper withheld from endorsing either candidate.
