For the first time in its 34-year history, USA Today has made an endorsement in a Presidential election. It did so, because in the opinion of its editorial board, Trump is "unfit" to be President:

<<Whether through indifference or ignorance, Trump has betrayed fundamental commitments made by all presidents since the end of World War II. These commitments include unwavering support for NATO allies, steadfast opposition to Russian aggression, and the absolute certainty that the United States will make good on its debts. He has expressed troubling admiration for authoritarian leaders and scant regard for constitutional protections.>>

Then the USA Today endorsement details specific grievances about Trump: He is "erractic," flip-flopping on major issues; he is "ill-equipped to be commander in chief;" he "traffics in prejudice;" "his business career is checkered;" he "isn't leveling with the American people;" he "speaks recklessly;" he has "coarsened the national dialogue;" and he's "a serial liar."

It was noteworthy that the USA Today editorial board noted in its conclusion that Trump is a "serial liar" that he engages in the "Big Lie" propaganda technique developed by the Nazi regime in Germany and utilized by despotic nations to this day, including especially by Vladimir Putin, of whom Trump has expressed great admiration. Contrary to the oft-expressed opinion in this forum by Trump supporters, USA Today's editorial board concludes that Trump is significantly less honest than Clinton.

<<Although polls show that Clinton is considered less honest and trustworthy than Trump, itís not even a close contest. Trump is in a league of his own when it comes to the quality and quantity of his misstatements. When confronted with a falsehood, such as his assertion that he was always against the Iraq War, Trumpís reaction is to use the Big Lie technique of repeating it so often that people begin to believe it.>>

Thank you for sharing.

I'm glad some people are seeing how dangerous Trump is.

Touting how unbiased you are right before proving otherwise is hilarious. If you criticize one candidate for being careless, corrupt, or untruthful, without immediately criticizing the other candidate for the exact same thing, then you have an agenda. Both candidates are pretty bad, and as a news source, you should never take sides. As a newspaper, It should be an embarrassment to take sides, and fail to report both sides fairly.

Oh, boy, USA Today! I would think that would turn every single Trump supporter here and across the US into a Clinton supporter!

It is cute that they think we would care though. Trump supporters think for themselves, funny those educated Clinton supporters need voting guidance.

For someone who's so concerned about danger, the fact that you support a corrupt politician who's the first presidential candidate to be ever under FBI investigation, deleted classified government emails, leaving our soldiers and ambassadors out to die, and voting to send our soldiers to get maimed and kill in Iraq, while destroying Libya to satisfy her war-hawk way of life makes me laugh.

Isn't it strange how all the MSM anti Trumpers use the exact same phrase "unfit to be president" in their headlines? Yet we're supposed to believe they're not in the DNCs hip pocket.

Isn't this the newspaper you can't give away for free in hotels? Their editorial board's opinion is as worthless as Hillary's promises.

Meh. A washed up, outdated form of media desperately trying to stay relevant. Does anyone actually read news papers anymore?

Surprisingly enough, some people actually still read. And some actually read newspapers. Who knew?

It's worth noting that not a single major newspaper has endorsed Trump. Not one.

Five prominent newspapers, "with a collective five-century streak of endorsing Republicans for president," recently rejected Trump "as lacking the temperament, judgment and conservative values necessary to be president."
