The New York Times on Friday blasted Donald Trump as a "poisonous messenger" using "vile tactics" to scare Americans into voting for him for president.

"How did a braggadocious Manhattan billionaire with a history of dodgy business deals convince 13 million people feeling battered by a changing world that he is their solution? Chutzpah, reality TV and a hyperactive Twitter account are part of the answer," The Times' editorial board wrote in a extraordinarily scathing opinion piece.

But afforded the chance to swap "the empty sloganeering and self-aggrandizement of his primary campaign with solid proposals worthy of Americans' trust, Mr. Trump made clear that he instead intends to terrify voters into supporting him, who will protect them from violence, a word that occurs over and over in his remarks," The Times said.

"The consequences for the Republican Party still lie ahead. Mr. Trump emerged as a political force with the racist claim that President Obama was not born in the United States.

"He has since sought advantage by playing to disaffected people's worst instincts, inventing scapegoats and conspiracy theories, waging and inciting vicious attacks on those who disagree with him."
