The editorial board of the Chicago Tribune says Donald Trump is not fit to be president and it is "still holding out hope" Republicans will find "the will, and a way" to replace him at the GOP convention this July.

"While there was plenty of interest in the presidential position, the interviewers — the voters — have settled on a candidate with neither appropriate experience nor a coherent governing philosophy," the Tribune says.

"Instead, he brims with outrageous promises and makes statements that sound at times like he's ignorant of the law (killing the families of terrorists), disconnected from economic reality (demanding that American companies open factories at home) and callous to women and minorities (his sexist put-downs and proposed ban on allowing Muslims into the country)."

The newspaper says "angry, disenfranchised Republicans" as well as some Democrats have helped Trump to come close to clinching the nomination.

"But hire a businessman and reality TV star as CEO of our multitrillion-dollar government? No thanks. We do not want to see Donald Trump become president of the United States of America, nor even the Republican nominee," the newspaper says.

"As an apprentice — to name-check his former show — he doesn't have sufficient potential to grow into the job."
