America is coming to Trump train more and more every day.
He is finally getting major newspapers endorsements, which is always great news for every presidential candidate.
Especially in battle states as Nevada.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal became the first major newspaper to endorse Donald Trump for president this election season, stating that, while the candidate has flaws, he’ll bring needed disruption and change to Washington.
“Mr. Trump represents neither the danger his critics claim nor the magic elixir many of his supporters crave,” the paper said in its endorsement. “But he promises to be a source of disruption and discomfort to the privileged, back-scratching political elites for whom the nation’s strength and solvency have become subservient to power’s pursuit and preservation.”
Trump tweeted, ” Thank you Las Vegas Review Journal” with a link to the editorial.
Thank you Las Vegas Review Journal!

The paper was bought by Sheldon Adelson last year, a major Republican donor who is also another billionaire linked to casinos. It remained unclear who bought the newspaper at the time of the deal, but many speculated whoever it was — that person really wanted to own this newspaper.
Soon after, it was reported that Adelson bought the Review-Journal for a whopping $140 million.
“Suspicions about his motives for paying a lavish $140 million for the newspaper last month are based on his reputation in Las Vegas as a figure comfortable with using his money in support of his numerous business and political concerns,” The New York Times reported in January.
The Review-Journal has a circulation of about 98,000 daily, 119,000 on Sundays and “remains a prime target for anyone seeking to influence voters in Nevada,” The Post’s media critic Paul Farhi wrote.
Adelson and his wife, well-known Republican donors, gave $5,400 to Ted Cruz in November and the same amount to Lindsey Graham in March, before the South Carolina senator dropped out.
Although smaller papers have endorsed Trump, several large conservative-leaning newspapers have broken ranks and endorsed Hillary Clinton for President in recent months.
The Review-Journal editorial board praised Trump’s “corporate sensibility,” which they believe will help him challenge an “ossified Beltway culture” and reform the tax code. Trump’s view of the Supreme Court also played a key role in the editorial board’s thinking:
Mr. Trump prefers nominees who recognize the Constitution’s checks on federal authority as a bulwark against tyranny. Mrs. Clinton would be a disaster in this regard.
Protections enshrined in no fewer than five amendments in the Bill of Rights could be eliminated or diminished under a progressive high court.
Trump could hardly have picked a better time or newspaper to land his first major endorsement. Trump badly needs to carry Nevada to keep alive his shrinking hopes for an Electoral College victory.
According to the RealClearPolitics average of polls, Clinton currently leads Trump by an average of 4.2 percent in Nevada.
New newspapers are going to endorse Trump these days, he is close to the White House by every day!
America will win in this epic battle for better future!
