New York Daily News Call For End of Trump’s Campaign Following Clinton Assassination Hint
New York Daily News has called for Donald Trump to end his presidential campaign following his reckless comments that appeared to be encouraging the assassination of Hilary Clinton. In an editorial posted online Tuesday night, the newspaper called for Trump to end his campaign following comments the candidate made on Tuesday that some saw as a threat of violence toward his rival Hillary Clinton.
the paper wrote. The strong stance of the paper was a reaction to Trump’s words in North Carolina that “Hillary wants to abolish — essentially abolish the Second Amendment. By the way, if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.” The comments have caused a back clash and caused a media storm against Trump, whose billionaire status and business accomplishments do not match his wisdom by any stretch of the imagination.
“Trump can offer no apology sufficient to make up for insidiously making light of murder,” the New York Daily News’ wrote. “Nor can he explain away or justify planting a notion that could spur a demented follower to kill a political rival, a President or Supreme Court justices.”
A refusal by Trump refuses to end his campaign should result in abandonment by those in the Republican Party, the paper wrote.
“In the event that Trump fails to abandon his candidacy — as he seems determined to — the Republican Party, including vice presidential nominee Mike Pence, must instead abandon Trump for toying with political bloodshed,”
the paper suggested. The New York Daily News are no fan of Trump, and have discrediting him at every given opportunity. However, this is yet the strongest stance taken against Trump by one of New York’s best selling papers. The paper continued in it’s written attack against Trump:
“Since the Democratic convention, Trump’s offensiveness, ignorance and instability have repulsed Americans, including Republicans, in increasing numbers,”
the paper wrote. “With notable exceptions, Republican officials have stayed uneasily with Trump while disowning his words and actions. Now, he has left them no choice but to dump Trump.”
The outright condemnation of Trump by the paper, was echoed by MSNBC host Joe Scarborough in The Washington Post that “Paul Ryan and every Republican leader should revoke their endorsement of Donald Trump.”
“At this point, what else could Trump do that would be worse than implying the positive impact of a political assassination?” Scarborough said in an opinion article posted online late Tuesday.
Trump’s words were not outrightly requesting for an assassination against Clinton, but he seemed to be implying an approval for one. In a country like the United States of America, where demented individuals are plentiful across the country, his words cannot be taken lightly. Trump is not a man known for his wisdom; in fact, he can fairly be said to be drunk with stupidity. In an attempt to gain the presidential seat, he seems prepared to go to any length to achieve it. Credibility or measure are two qualities woefully lacking in any justifiable measure of his credentials. The thought of having an American president like Trump, is a nightmare that will take a long time for most to recover from. The New York Daily News recognize this, which is why they have come so strong against Trump’s campaign.
Only last week, the current President of America, President Obama, went as far as to publicly condemn Donald Trump and warn the American public that he lacks the temperament or wisdom to rule America and occupy the position of the most powerful man in America. This was as damning as it could get. Obama’s comments came in the wake of Trump’s call for Russia to commit espionage by hacking Hilary’s emails, and exposing some allegedly 30,000 emails not obtain by Wikileaks– the whistle blowing website whose founder is in exile following sexual assault allegations.
Trump will gradually lose enough support for him to see a doomed campaign ahead of him. He will hold unto every thread of hope in the meantime until he smells the failure of his campaign stinking like a dead animal.
