Donald Trump receives first major newspaper endorsement

Donald Trump first major newspaper endorsement

Until now, we only heard about Donald Trump banning newspapers from attending his events, but it seems that there are publications who still like him, as his campaign finally received the first major newspaper endorsement.

It’s an important reference point for Trump’s campaign

The Las Vegas Review – Journal, the largest in Nevada, announced the endorsement. According to Mashable, the official statement decried what they wanted to call “social media sideshows and carnival clatter”, while praising the Republican’s corporate experience.

“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”, the newspaper’s statement said.

Of course, this newspaper endorsement doesn’t come as a surprise, since it’s owned by Sheldon Adelson, known for being one of the biggest Republican donors.

On the other side, Mr. Adelson has yet to put any money in Donald Trump’s campaign, at least until now.

Hillary Clinton is relying on way more newspaper support

It’s worth mentioning that Hillary Clinton leads in a top of newspaper endorsements, after receiving support from publications like Arizona Republic, The Dallas Morning News or Cincinnati Enquirer, known for their previous Republican views.

Even more, the Democratic candidate is also supported by bigger newspapers, like the L.A. Times, N.Y. Times orThe Washington Post
