Las Vegas Review-Journal Endorses Trump

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump secured his first major newspaper endorsement when the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s editorial board decided to back him. Characterizing this year as a “change election,” the newspaper said a Hillary Clinton presidency would mean the elimination of some of our basic rights under the Constitution. “Mr. Trump understands and appreciates the conditions that lead to prosperity and job creation and would be a friend to small business and entrepreneurship,” the editorial board wrote. “Mrs. Clinton has spent most of her adult life on the public payroll.” The newspaper is owned by Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson, and is often referred to as “The Adelson News.”
