USA TODAY's Editorial Board: Trump is 'unfit for the presidency'

USA Today denounces TrumpIn the 34-year history of USA TODAY, the Editorial Board has never taken sides in the presidential race. Instead, we’ve expressed opinions about the major issues and haven’t presumed to tell our readers, who have a variety of priorities and values, which choice is best for them. Because every presidential race is different, we revisit our no-endorsement policy every four years. We’ve never seen reason to alter our approach. Until now.

This year, the choice isn’t between two capable major party nominees who happen to have significant ideological differences. This year, one of the candidates — Republican nominee Donald Trump — is, by unanimous consensus of the Editorial Board, unfit for the presidency.


Trump Foundation Not Properly Certified

Trump Foundation Not Properly LicensedThe Trump Foundation has been dogged with scandals in recent weeks and a new report indicates that the foundation never got the certification it needed in New York to allow it to solicit money from the public.

Any charity that solicits more than $25,000 per year has to get a special registration before doing so. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman could order the charity to stop raising money immediately if he finds that the foundation raised money in violation of the law.


Unable To Name A Foreign Leader, Gary Johnson Has Another 'Aleppo Moment'

Gary JohnsonAsked to name his favorite foreign leader, or any foreign leader he admires, Libertarian nominee for president Gary Johnson was unable to come up with an answer.

The exchange occurred on an MSNBC town hall hosted by Chris Matthews Wednesday night.

When Johnson hesitated at the initial question, Matthews said, "Go ahead, you gotta do this. Anywhere. Any continent. Canada, Mexico, Europe, over there, Asia, South America, Africa. Name a foreign leader that you respect."


Russia hits back at US, supports 48-hour Syria truce

Syria truce on for 48 hrsA US threat to suspend talks on Syria over the bombardment of Aleppo's rebel-held areas constitutes "an emotional breakdown", according to a top Russian official, who says that Moscow will support a 48-hour "humanitarian pause" around the besieged city.

Sergei Ryabkov, Russia's deputy foreign minister, rejected on Thursday US calls for a seven-day truce as "unacceptable", but said a two-day ceasefire could allow desperately needed aid to reach the more than 250,000 civilians trapped in Aleppo.


Researchers develop material for 3D-printing bone

3-d bone printingA team of researchers from Northwestern University have developed a 3D-printable ink that produces synthetic bone material, which they hope will ease the lives of children needing implantation surgery in the future.

The study, published in Science Translational Medicine, produced a hyperelastic bone-like material that can be easily customized to fit the needs of its host. Currently, bone implantation surgery typically involves harvesting needed bone from elsewhere in the body, which can cause additional complications and pain. Lead researcher Ramille Shah says this places a particular strain on growing children who need repeated surgeries as they age.
