WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- The Washington Post's Editorial Board endorsed the Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton Thursday morning "without hesitation", the Post announced.

According to the article in the Washington Post they believe Clinton is "well-qualified and well prepared." In addition the article states that Clinton has the "potential to be an excellent president of the United States and we endorse her without hesitation."

The Post did state that they are "not simply making the endorsement because Ms. Clinton's chief opponent is dreadful." In the editorial the Post opens up about how they do find Trump to be "dreadful and unqualified" for the position, however this is not the reasoning behind the endorsement.

The Editorial Board acknowledges the dislike for Clinton among some Americans and elaborates on why, she continues to be a good candidate despite all of the ongoing issues and attacks.
