New York Times editorial board endorses Clinton for president

NEW YORK — The New York Times’ editorial board on Saturday endorsed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for president.

The editorial — which will appear in print on Sunday, the day before the first presidential debate — emphasizes national security and cites Clinton’s experience as secretary of state in saying she is better qualified to shape US foreign policy than her Republican challenger, Donald Trump.

“Through war and recession, Americans born since 9/11 have had to grow up fast, and they deserve a grown-up president. A lifetime’s commitment to solving problems in the real world qualifies Hillary Clinton for this job, and the country should put her to work,” the paper concludes.

The Times also backed Clinton during the Democratic primary fight.
