The Orlando Sentinel’s editorial board has announced that the newspaper is “not endorsing” President Donald Trump despite its long history of endorsing Republican presidential candidates.

The newspaper made the announcement the same day Trump is set to officially announce his reelection campaign in Orlando. The Sentinel’s editorial board did not endorse any specific candidate, but noted that “there’s no point pretending we would ever recommend that readers vote for Trump.

“After 2½ years we’ve seen enough,” they write. “Enough of the chaos, the division, the schoolyard insults, the self-aggrandizement, the corruption, and especially the lies.”

They add, “Trump’s successful assault on truth is the great casualty of this presidency, followed closely by his war on decency.

“Trump insults political opponents and national heroes alike with middle-school taunts. He demonstrates no capacity for empathy or remorse.”

They go on to accuse the president of having “diminished our standing in the world. He reneges on deals, attacks allies and embraces enemies,” singling out his praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

The editorial board notes that if a Republican like Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah or Ohio Gov. John Kasich “successfully primaried the president, we would eagerly give them a look. Same if an independent candidate mounted a legitimate campaign.

“We’d even consider backing Trump if, say, he found the proverbial cure for cancer or — about as likely — changed the essence of who he is (he won’t).

“The nation must endure another 1½ years of Trump. But it needn’t suffer another four beyond that.”
