Reid Calls Trump ‘a Human Leech’

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, during a speech this week on the Senate floor, dismissed Donald Trump as a “spoiled brat” and “a notorious con artist.”

The Nevada Democrat went on to declare that the Republican presidential nominee “is a human leech who will bleed the country and sit at his golf resort laughing about the money he has made,” Politico reported. The news site posted a video of the comments, while Reid’s website provided a transcript, according to Newsmax.

“Donald Trump is only trying to help Donald Trump,” the senator declared “I don’t care if he wants to be president or city commissioner. Donald Trump is in it to benefit Donald Trump.” Reid pointed out that the real-estate mogul is being sued for allegedly defrauding students at his business university. He also slammed Trump for “ranting about how horrible Hillary Clinton is” at a church in Flint, Mich.

“Let’s be clear about Donald Trump. He’s a spoiled brat, raised in plenty, who inherited a fortune, used his money to make more money, and he did a lot of it by swindling working men and women,” Reid said. “Why would he change as president? The answer is simple. Trump won’t change. He is asking us to let him get rich scamming America. We can’t chance the sovereignty of this nation on a con man like Trump.”

Newsmax noted that it was not the first time the senator, who plans to retire in January, has blasted Trump. Last month, Reid alleged that the candidate has links to Russian intelligence operatives accused of trying to influence the presidential election.
