Indian-American publication endorses Clinton for presidentNovember 02, 2016 08:19
For the first time in 30 years, an Indian-American monthly publication has endorsed a US presidential candidate as it asked its readers to vote for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
India Currents, a monthly publication from Bay Area, said in an editorial that it endorsed Clinton as it felt "intense outrage" after the resurfacing of an old video of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
"For the first time in thirty years, we are endorsing a presidential nominee-- Hillary Clinton to be the next president," said in a joint editorial written by the magazine's editor Nirupama Vaidhyananthan and publisher Vandana Kumar.
Founded in 1987, the monthly is also being published from Washington DC for the past few years.
According to the editorial, the news magazine decided to endorse a presidential candidate after a 15-year-old video of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump resurfaced in which he is seen making lewd remarks about women.
