WaPo determines Trump would pose ‘radical risk’ after meeting him
I don’t think you have to meet him to know this.
After spending more than a hour Monday talking policy with Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, the Washington Post editorial board concluded that his election would be “dangerous” for the United States.
“His answers left little doubt how radical a risk the nation would be taking in entrusting the White House to him,” the board wrote in an editorial published Monday night.
The wide-ranging conversation touched on Trump’s expressed skepticism towards human-caused global warming, his plan to eradicate poverty by improving the “spirit” of inner-city residents, and his stated intention to make it easier to sue the press for libel.
According to the board, Trump’s “breezy willingness to ignore facts and evidence” and lack of concrete policies posed the greatest to the country.
