Even the editorial board for the New York Post has had it enough with the president’s personal insults on Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif).
The Rupert Murdoch-owned newspaper’s board used an op-ed on Thursday to advise President Donald Trump that if he “continues to be his own worst enemy” by calling Kamala Harris, the presumptive vice-presidential nominee, a “mad woman” and “nasty.”
The U.S president risked turning off voters “who like his policies but dislike his rhetoric,” said the board, which endorsed Trump for the 2016 GOP primary in New York.
Trump’s personal insults are “just, as Trump would say, mean and nasty,” it added in the column headlined “Lose the nasty words, Mr. President — it does you no good.”
The tabloid instead supported Trump to criticize presumptive Democratic rival Joe Biden and his running mate, Harris, on “substantive issues” such as the economy and foreign policy.
“Why not focus on that, Mr. President — instead of resorting to callous insults that do you no good. Your goal is to get reelected, right?” the board concluded.
