The New York Post Editorial Board published an op-ed and powerful cover of the newspaper slamming President Trump for not accepting the results of the election.
The paper noted that by not doing so, President Trump is damaging himself.
According to The Daily Wire:
The New York Post Editorial Board published a piercing op-ed and newspaper cover late on Sunday urging President Donald Trump to accept the results of the recent election, saying that he was damaging himself by not doing so.
The piece began by calling on Trump to “end this dark charade” of trying to overturn the election result, warning that if he continues down this road he could end up undoing many of his accomplishments if he does not unite the Republican Party ahead of the U.S. Senate runoff races in Georgia next month. The New York Post said that Trump was essentially “cheering for an undemocratic coup” in the presidential election.
“Sidney Powell is a crazy person,” The New York Post wrote. “Michael Flynn suggesting martial law is tantamount to treason. It is shameful.”
The New York Post, which is consistently ranked as one of top five most circulated papers in the country, urged Trump to focus on the Senate races next month.

From the Post’s op-ed:
You had every right to investigate the election. But let’s be clear: Those efforts have found nothing. To take just two examples: Your campaign paid $3 million for a recount in two Wisconsin counties, and you lost by 87 more votes. Georgia did two recounts of the state, each time affirming Biden’s win. These ballots were counted by hand, which alone debunks the claims of a Venezuelan vote-manipulating Kraken conspiracy. …
We understand, Mr. President, that you’re angry that you lost. But to continue down this road is ruinous. We offer this as a newspaper that endorsed you, that supported you: If you want to cement your influence, even set the stage for a future return, you must channel your fury into something more productive. …
If Republicans David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler win, they will prevent Biden from rolling back what you have accomplished. A Republican Senate can pressure Biden against returning to the old, failed Iran deal, can stop him from throwing open our southern border, will prevent him from packing the court.
Now imagine a government controlled by your nemeses — Nancy Pelosi in the House, Chuck Schumer in the Senate, Joe Biden in the White House. How high will taxes go? How many of your initiatives will be strangled? And, on a personal note, do you think they won’t spend the next four years torturing you with baseless hearings and investigations?
The New York Post joins the Wall Street Journal as the major newspapers that endorsed Trump to now urge him to accept the election results.
