CBS News: The New York Post endorses Donald Trump

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS News) - The New York Post endorsed Republican front-runner Donald Trump with an editorial published late Thursday, making it the first major New York newspaper to back the candidate.

According to CBS News, the board reflected that Trump's appeal is based, not on the candidate's campaign so far, but on his "promise," setting the expectation that Trump will "pivot" not just on issues but on mannerisms.

"Trump has electrified the public, drawing millions of new voters to the polls and inspiring people who'd given up on ever again having a candidate who'd fight for them," the Post wrote.

Sources told CBS News the editorial board admitted to Trump's many flaws as a candidate, however, calling his language "amateurish and divisive."

The Post concluded, Trump "has the potential -- the skills, the know-how, the values -- to live up to his campaign slogan: to make America great again," according to CBS News.

New Yorkers vote during the state's April 19 primary.
