Washington Post reporters David Fahrenthold and Scott Shane and Post reporters Amy B Wang and John Wagner and editors Scott Shane, Josh Rogin and Greg Miller discuss how the United States’ record-breaking election results are reshaping the climate debate.
The Washington Post editorial board endorsed Clinton for president in an editorial Monday.
The Post’s editorial board said the results showed that “the election is not a referendum on Trump but rather a test of the candidate who best represents the United State in the international arena.”
In a separate editorial, The Washington Times editorial board also endorsed Clinton.
The editorial board says the election was the best test of Trump’s leadership and temperament in an increasingly chaotic world.
It calls the results a turning point that “shifts the political landscape and sets the stage for a brighter future for our country.”
The Times says Clinton’s win is a sign of a change in the mood in Washington.
The newspaper said Trump’s populist appeal and refusal to concede defeat, and his insistence on attacking and shaming other countries, were undermining his ability to work with Democrats and the country at large.
