In their first Republican endorsement since 1972, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has endorsed President Trump’s reelection.
The publication urges readers to “look at the Trump record:”
They write “under Donald Trump the economy, pre-COVID, boomed, like no time since the 1950s. Look at your 401(k) over the past three years.”
“Unemployment for Black Americans is lower than it has ever been, under any president of either party.”
“Under Mr. Trump, our trade relationships have vastly improved and our trade deals have been rewritten. Thanks to him, middle America is on the map again and the Appalachian and hourly worker has some hope,” the publication adds.
The board also blasted Biden’s stance on green energy, fossil fuels, “and other Cuckoo California dreams that will cost the economy and the people who most need work right now.”
The write “Mr. Biden is too old for the job, and fragile. There is a very real chance he will not make it through the term. Mr. Trump is also too old but seemingly robust. But in Mike Pence, Mr. Trump has a vice president ready to take over, if need be. He is a safe pair of hands.”
“Sen. Kamala Harris gives no evidence of being ready to be president,” the board adds.
Trump campaign adviser Jason Miller discussed the key endorsement earlier today.
