The New York Post has officially endorsed Donald J. Trump for re-election. The Post has one of the largest circulations and readerships in the news industry. In the op-ed, the Post lists some of Trump’s many accomplishments from his success with the economy to foreign policy decisions as reasons for endorsing the President.
The New York Post writes:
How did President Trump do it? First, by trusting the free market. He championed lowering the corporate tax rate to a figure more in line with the rest of the industrialized world. He cut cumbersome regulations, particularly ones rammed through as President Barack Obama was headed out the door. He streamlined the permitting process that would delay infrastructure projects by years, sometimes decades.
A Joe Biden administration would be beholden to a socialist left that sees an opportunity to remake the nation in its vision, one more dependent on government debt. Consider Biden’s dance on fracking — against it for his party, in favor of it in general because he knows what a positive force it’s been for Pennsylvania. Which position would he have in office?
His Education Department reversed Obama’s spectacular overreach that turned college bureaucrats into star-chamber judges in sexual assault cases, with no rights for the accused. He’s encouraged school choice — a work in progress that Biden would stifle because of his fealty to the teachers unions. Trump passed criminal justice reform, freeing those locked up far past the point of reasonable punishment. He rightly railed against the permissiveness of politicians in cities such as Portland to the lawlessness on their streets.
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 New York Post concluded the endorsement by saying Trump is the best choice for the United States adding, “Plus it’ll really tick off Hollywood.”
