Washington Post strongly backs Clinton


Washington—The Washington Post on Thursday became the latest US newspaper to endorse Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying it was swayed as much by her competence as the disastrous specter of a Donald Trump presidency.
“Hillary Clinton has the potential to be an excellent president of the United States, and we endorse her without hesitation,” the influential US daily wrote, adding, “no, we are not making this endorsement simply because Ms Clinton’s chief opponent is dreadful.”
Clinton, in contrast, “is dogged, resilient, purposeful and smart,” the newspaper wrote, while acknowledging her many political and personal missteps in the past — failings it said are outweighed by her strengths.
“She has executive experience. She does not let her feelings get in the way of the job at hand. She is well positioned to get something done,” the daily wrote.—APP
