On Saturday, the New York Times endorsed Hillary Clinton, claiming that she is more qualified than Donald Trump to handle the various challenges that the US currently faces.

In the article, Clinton was described as "one of the most tenacious politicians of her generation," displaying an excellent command of diplomacy and policy, while enjoying a reputation for grit and bipartisan cooperation.

According to the Times, "A lifetime’s commitment to solving problems in the real world qualifies Hillary Clinton for this job, and the country should put her to work."

Hillary has served as Secretary of State, as well as New York senator. The Benghazi fiasco occurred under her watch as Secretary of State.

"Mrs. Clinton has shown herself to be a realist who believes America cannot simply withdraw behind oceans and walls, but must engage confidently in the world to protect its interests and be true to its values," the newspaper said.

The Times claims that despite Clinton's work in restoring US credibility in foreign affairs, as well as her efforts on behalf of women, children, and families throughout her career, the public still has a distorted perception of Clinton's character.

According to them, her decision to use a private email server for government work did indeed deserve scrutiny, but was not problematic considering the real challenges facing the US at this time.

Trump "shrinks to his true small-screen, reality-show proportions," beside Hillary, they claimed.

The 'newspaper of record' has promised another editorial on Monday, to explain, "why we believe Mr. Trump to be the worst nominee put forward by a major party in modern American history."

The last Republican candidate endorsed by the New York Times was President Dwight Eisenhower, in 1956.

The Democratic candidate's husband, former president Bill Clinton said in May that he "killed himself to give the 'Palestinians' a state." Hillary Clinton recently suffered an "unexplained" medical episode, causing speculation over whether she is physically fit to serve as president.

During her time as Secretary of State, Clinton considered a plan to purposefully cause unrest among Israel's Arabs, in an attempt to cause upheaval and to force the Israeli government into concessions.
