The Boston Herald has changed its tune since 2016 when the paper’s editorial board decided not to endorse a presidential candidate ahead of the election, instead endorsing "none of the above" in a widely publicized piece at the time.
This year, they’re picking a side – and it's Trump's.
In an editorial published Tuesday, the board explained they’re backing Trump over Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden because of Trump’s America-first economic policy and ability to get the country back on track following the COVID pandemic.
"He’s against defunding police, for holding China accountable for COVID-19 negligence and putting America first on trade, defense, the courts and, again, the economy," the Herald wrote. "He’s what America needs right now, decisive action to get us back to pre-pandemic strength — not an unfeasible spending spree in the name of a progressive utopia."
The board added that while they believe Trump is far from perfect - aying the president “hasn’t done himself any favors with his incessant tweets” – that he’s still a better pick over Biden, whose “platform is a risky love letter to social justice warriors and those who believe capitalism is the root of all evil.”
