“Here is where Mr. Trump has done the most damage — and where Mr. Biden is almost uniquely positioned for the moment. He would restore decency, honor and competence to America’s government,” the editorial board wrote in an opinion article endorsing Biden.

The article offered several scathing criticisms of Trump, knocking his competence as well as his integrity over his first term in office.

Trump has “few accomplishments in his first term and no agenda for his second,” the paper argued, and the president has set a “negative example” that Biden would counter with “decency, empathy and respect for other human beings.”

However, the Post acknowledged that “those qualities are not sufficient” because the job of president also requires “toughness, governing experience and good judgment.”

The paper contends that Biden does indeed “have what it takes,” evidenced by the former vice president taking on an array of “rising stars” in the race for the Democratic nomination.

His defeat of Democratic socialist Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont “showed that the party hadn’t moved as far left as some were saying,” said the Post, and he selected the running mate that “almost everyone agreed was the most qualified” in Senator Kamala Harris of California.

“Biden’s competence and honor are more important in this cycle than any particular stand on any particular issue,” the Post stated, but added that his “well of experience” is not lacking either.

Biden would “better position the United States as a capitalist competitor to China,” the editorial board wrote. “He would rejoin the Paris accord on climate change and seek to revive the nuclear deal with Iran. He would reverse Mr. Trump’s senseless withdrawal from the World Health Organization, and commit the United States to multilateral efforts to combat the coronavirus pandemic.”
