The New York Post is backing Donald Trump for President.
“The New York Post threw its support behind GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump just five days before New York’s delegate-rich primary.
In a Thursday night editorial, the editorial board of the Rupert Murdoch-owned paper argued that the “rookie candidate” will need to act more presidential in the general election, while noting the energy his campaign has injected into the presidential race.
“Should he win the nomination, we expect Trump to pivot — not just on the issues, but in his manner. The post-pivot Trump needs to be more presidential: better informed on policy, more self-disciplined and less thin-skinned.
“Yet the promise is clearly there in the rookie who is, after all, leading the field as the finals near,” the editorial said. “Trump has electrified the public, drawing millions of new voters to the polls and inspiring people who’d given up on ever again having a candidate who’d fight for them.”
The board also noted his business bona fides and strong ties to the Empire State.
