On Friday (June 9), former President Donald Trump’s ex-favorite newspaper, the New York Post, called him and President Joe Biden the “worst men in America” in an editorial.
In the editorial, published a day after the former President was indicted for tampering with classified documents, the newspaper’s editors described that Trump is “Used to believing that the rules don’t apply to him.”
They noted that Trump “ignored the law and mocked the authorities,” and the indictment “called him on it.”
The editorial details how Trump admitted to “taking the classified documents and obstructing the government’s efforts to get them back,” highlighting that the former President asserted he had a “right” to do so, even though he didn’t.
Trump is accused of violating U.S. national security laws and conspiracy to obstruct justice, special counsel Jack Smith, overseeing the case, revealed at a press conference on Friday.
Trump has become the first former U.S. President in the nation’s history to face federal charges after the discovery of hundreds of classified documents.
The FBI seized these documents from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida last August.
Also, in August, the newspaper called on Republicans to abandon Trump shortly after the FBI raid.
In Friday’s editorial, the Post questioned why Trump took the documents, suggesting he did it to “serve his own ego” and “show Mar-a-Lago guests how important he used to be.”
The editorial also took aim at Biden, saying the President “let” his son Hunter Biden make foreign business deals with Ukrainian energy company Burisma and Chinese energy officials, who the Post said “were paying for access.
The Post describes Biden and Trump, who are both running for President in 2024, as “two unscrupulous men.”
The editorial shared a hope that Republican voters wouldn’t vote for Trump, who they described as a “moral vacuum with a track record of losing elections.”
