Newspaper Endorsements

More daily newspaper endorsements here.

Hot damn. Donald Trump is just rolling in the endorsements now. It makes it three total, while Clinton has a total of 153.

Here is the Trump endorsement:

Waxahatchie Daily Light:

Any other choice for President of the United States would be an irresponsible and dangerous one. While Mr. Trump hasn’t always been the candidate we believe best represents the conservative movement in America, we do know that Hillary Clinton embodies the kind of risk this country can ill afford ... particularly given the damage of the last eight painful, destructive years.

Mr. Trump gives America a chance to restore the goodness found in her longstanding commitment to leadership in the world, to the restoration of her strength in militaristic resolve, to the dynamics of her capitalism and collective wealth, to the empathy and compassion for the unborn and downtrodden, to the respect for law and law enforcement and to having passion for defending America against barbaric, unabashed evil both at home and abroad. No candidate is perfect, but in Mr. Trump’s case, we believe his willingness to surround himself with those who know what they’re doing and that his intent to reverse course of nearly every direction down which we’ve been dragged is exactly what America needs at this point in her history.

Hillary Clinton:

Merced Sun-Star:

We make no apologies for endorsing Hillary Clinton for president. Of the two major candidates and all the minor-leaguers, she is by far the most qualified, most prepared, most thoughtful, most experienced and most deserving of our votes. That doesn’t mean we don’t have concerns.

What doesn’t concern us, though, are her ideas, skills and demeanor. Throughout this bitter campaign, she has shown that she has what it takes to lead.

Few millionaires will like her tax plans, but the middle class will. So will those still looking for jobs.

She borrowed some of Bernie Sanders’ best ideas, including a debt-free college education and a $15-an-hour minimum wage. She opposes the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal but holds out hope it can be salvaged – and so do we for the sake of our agricultural exports. Clinton would expand the Affordable Care Act and improve mental health treatment.


La Opinion:

While endorsing Hillary Clinton for President, La OpiniĆ³n wishes to make clear that this support is not unconditional. In defense of the interests of Hispanics, we will follow closely her administration’s actions, and, if necessary, our editorial page will express criticism or protest.

Once she reaches power, as we wish she will, the new president must fulfill the political promises she has made to earn the Latino vote. Among them, promoting and passing immigration reform in her first 100 days in office.

During the primaries against Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton promised a reform with a pathway to citizenship: “We need comprehensive immigration reform with a path to full and equal citizenship. If Congress won’t act, I’ll defend President Obama’s executive actions —and I’ll go even further to keep families together. I’ll end family detention, close private immigrant detention centers, and help more eligible people become naturalized,” said Clinton.

In her official platform, Clinton promises “fix the family visa backlog.” She will also “end the three- and 10-year bars forcing families to choose between remaining in the shadows or pursue a green card by leaving the country and loved ones behind.”
