The Washington Post‘s editorial board issued an endorsement of Joe Biden’s White House bid on Monday, arguing the former vice president was the right person to replace the “worst president of modern time.”
“In order to expel the worst president of modern times, many voters might be willing to vote for almost anybody,” the editorial board wrote.
“The Democratic nominee, former vice president Joe Biden, is exceptionally well-qualified, by character and experience, to meet the daunting challenges that the nation will face over the coming four years,” they added.
Although the editorial touted Biden’s attributes for the presidency, the Post spent a significant amount of time attacking Trump’s tenure in the White House.
Trump’s negative example has demonstrated how essential in a president are decency, empathy and respect for other human beings,” the board wrote, adding that incumbent had “few accomplishments in his first term and no agenda for his second.”
