“We can leave behind annus horribilis, 2020 and make America great again,” writes The Post.
The New York Post approved the re-election of President Trump on Monday, saying he is the man who will “make America great again and again,” and beating Democratic nominee Joe Biden will also deliver some amusement, annoying Hollywood.
“We can return to the rapid job creation, higher wages and shared prosperity that we had before the pandemic. We can have economic freedom and opportunity and resist the abolition of culture and censorship. We can leave behind annus horribilis, 2020, and make America great again, ”wrote the tabloid editorial staff.
“We can do it all – if we make the right choice on November 3,” the editorial continued, advertising Trump’s economy before the pandemic.
“Elections are always about the economy, but never more than this year. So, a reminder: before the shutdown required to fight the coronavirus, the unemployment rate was 3.5 percent, the lowest in half a century.
African American unemployment stood at 6.8 percent, the lowest since 1972. Adults who had been unemployed for many years opened up new perspectives; over the 17 months of Trump’s presidency, 1 million more vacancies were opened than the unemployed, ”the statement said. “This has led to an increase in salaries.
For the first time in a decade, wage growth exceeded 3% year-on-year. It also narrowed the wealth gap. ”
The Post praised Trump for his “confidence in the free market” and warned that “the Biden administration will owe the socialist left, who sees an opportunity to remake a nation in their vision, even more dependent on government debt.”
The Post also applauded Trump for “rejecting the globalist axiom that trade deals and unrestricted immigration are better for Americans” and admitted that “unrestricted illegal immigration was unfair to American workers.”
The editors predicted that Biden would “re-open the border locks” and allow China to eat “our lunch”, taking advantage of America’s advantages. In addition, The Post believes that Trump “defended pride in American values from those who defame our entire country as a racist enterprise,” and “rightly spoke out against the permissiveness of politicians in cities like Portland, to lawlessness on their streets.”
The newspaper says Trump is being unfairly accused of the coronavirus pandemic and that the vaccine will be available in the coming months.
“We will most likely have a vaccine in the coming months, much earlier than many experts thought. The media do not want to admit it, but this is all thanks to the policy of “warp-speed” established by the White House “- wrote the board before advertising Trump’s foreign policy.
“After the previous administrations promised, but did not move our embassy to Jerusalem, he did it, and despite the predictions of doom, nothing happened,” the board wrote. “Trump did not drag us into new foreign wars, but pulled us out of the old ones.
He persuaded Mexico to serve immigration caravans from Central America and successfully pushed NATO allies to pay more on their obligations. When journalists write that the United States has “lost its position in the world,” they usually mean our position at cocktail parties in Davos. It is clear to the rest of us that Trumpism is about doing the best for our country. ”
This endorsement was met with little criticism, as the president called him “vain and thin-skinned,” admitting that he probably won’t lose those traits anytime soon.
“The question is which is more important: words or actions? The media are extremely fixated on Trump’s tweets and impromptu remarks, and have never learned the lesson that he is just chattering most of the time. In supporting him, we prefer to focus on the actions and achievements of President Trump.
He kept his promises, ”the editorial staff wrote. “President Trump will not seek to remake the country. He will trust that America, with support, but not interference, will recover. In short, it won’t get in the way. His re-election is the best choice for the United States. ”
The confirmation culminated in the final reason the Post favors Trump over Biden.
“It really will be a tick in Hollywood,” they wrote on the board.
