Comment: Conservative Newspapers Raise Alarm
At least six Conservative newspapers that have steadfastly endorsed Republican candidates for President for a combined six centuries have raised an alarm over Donald Trump's candidacy and endorsed his competition. Here is the list of these long standing newspapers, the history of their endorsements and their endorsement this year:

  • The Cincinnati Enquirer: (Backed Every Republican presidential candidate since 1916) "It has to be Hillary Clinton" "Trump is a clear and present danger to our country... Do we really want someone in charge of our military and nuclear codes who has an impulse control problem?... The fact that so many top military and national security officials are not supporting Trump speaks volumes... Why should anyone believe that a Trump presidency would look markedly different from his offensive, erratic, stance-shifting presidential campaign?"
  • The Arizona Republic: (Backed every Republican presidential candidate since its founding in 1890)"Hillary Clinton is the only choice to move America ahead" "The 2016 Republican candidate is not conservative and he is not qualified... Trump responds to criticism with the petulance of verbal spit wads. That's beneath our national dignity. When the president of the United States speaks, the world expects substance. Not a blistering tweet... Taken together they reveal a candidate who doesn't grasp our national ideals... Instead of offering solutions, he hangs scapegoats like pinatas and invites people to take a swing."
  • The Dallas Morning News: (Backed every Republican presidential candidate since 1940) "We recommend Hillary Clinton for president" "Trump's values are hostile to conservatism. He plays on fear - exploiting base instincts of xenophobia, racism and misogyny - to bring out the worst in all of us, rather than the best. His serial shifts on fundamental issues reveal an astounding absence of preparedness. And his improvisational insults and midnight tweets exhibit a dangerous lack of judgment and impulse control."
  • The San Diego Union-Tribune: (Never endorsed a Democrat for President since 1868) "Why Hillary Clinton is the safe choice for president" "Terrible leaders can knock nations off course. Venezuela is falling apart because of the obstinance and delusions of Hugo Chavez and his successor. Trump could be our Chavez... We cannot take that risk."
  • Detroit News: (Has only endorsed Republican presidential candidates since its founding in 1873) "Gary Johnson for president" Donald Trump is unprincipled, unstable and quite possibly dangerous. He can not be president... The most worrisome thing about Trump is that he is willing to stir the populace by stoking their fears of sinister forces at work from within and without to tear down their traditions, values and families... His sort of populism has led to some of history's great tragedies.
  • The Columbus Dispatch: (Backed Every Republican presidential candidate since 1916) "For president: Trump unfit, Clinton is qualified" "For us, the choice between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is not pleasant, but it isn't difficult, Republican candidate Donald Trump is unfit to be president of the United States. The Dispatch traditionally has endorsed Republican presidential candidates, but Trump does not espouse or support traditional Republican values, such as fiscal prudence, limited government and free trade, not to mention civility and decency."
  • New Hampshire Union Leader: (Backed Every Republican presidential candidate since 1916) "A better choice for President (No need to hold your nose)" "Trump is a liar, a bully, a buffoon. He denigrates any individual or group that displeases him. He has dishonored military veterans and their families, made fun of the physically frail, and changed political views almost as often as he has changed wives."
It is historic that so many of these long-standing Conservative newspapers are going against their decades old politics to oppose Trump. Please let us know your thoughts by writing to us at editor@ilw.com.
