USA Today Declares Donald Trump "Unfit For The Presidency"

Today USA Today is will be breaking with one of its own long held traditions and take a side in the 2016 race.

The paper's editorial board will be urging readers to vote against Donald Trump.

The newspaper, one of the most widely circulated in the country, argued that no presidential contest until now has warranted such a statement...

This year, the choice isn’t between two capable major party nominees who happen to have significant ideological differences. This year, one of the candidates — Republican nominee Donald Trump — is, by unanimous consensus of the Editorial Board, unfit for the presidency.

The editorial continues...

From the day he declared his candidacy 15 months ago through this week’s first presidential debate, Trump has demonstrated repeatedly that he lacks the temperament, knowledge, steadiness and honesty that America needs from its presidents.” 

The editorial lists among it's reasons to vote against Trump is his prejudiced rhetoric, his erratic temperament, his “checkered” business history and his dishonesty.

The paper did however stop short of endorsing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
