Trump-endorsing newspaper tells president he’s lost election in scathing editorial

A newspaper that endorsed president Donald Trump in both 2020 and 2016 has released a scathing editorial chastising his claims of election fraud and affirming he has “lost the election.”

The Las Vegas Review-Journal , Nevada’s largest newspaper, endorsed Mr Trump for a second term as president in the run-up to the election on 3 October. The newspaper also backed Mr Trump in 2016.

However, in an editorial published on Thursday, the newspaper hit out at the president’s reaction to the election saying that Mr Trump’s challenges to the result were only “prolonging the inevitable” and are “an insult to reason and logic.”

“Rhetoric from Trump surrogates alleging widespread illegal activity has been devoid of detailed evidence supporting the charge that there was a concerted effort to ‘steal’ the election through corruption,” the paper wrote, Rawstory reported.

“An electoral system that involves the participation of 150 million Americans will have its share of issues, but it’s an insult to reason and logic to argue that isolated irregularities constitute proof of a grand national conspiracy.”

Bam. they nailed it.
