Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) on Friday warned that President Donald Trump’s mental state appears to be “getting worse” amid his claims that former Vice President Joe Biden will somehow “hurt God” and “hurt the bible.”
In an interview with CNN’s Brianna Keilar, Reid was asked what to make of Trump’s outrageous claims that the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee was “against God,” despite being a lifelong Catholic.
“I think it’s just so absolutely crazy,” he said. “There’s something wrong with that man. We keep — I keep hoping that it will become more attuned with reality, but he’s getting worse. Joe Biden’s against God? That’s kind of a stretch, I would think.”
Reid also took aim at Trump’s public attacks directed at his state’s mail-in voting system.
“I’m happy that he singled Nevada out if he has a problem, because we have a system that’s really, really good and has been proven so over the years,” he said. “He’s got a business here, maybe that’s why he does it. He has the Trump Tower here. Maybe he needs a trip here to play golf or something, I don’t know. But it’s — he’s raising concerns that are nonexistent.”
“Mail-in voting goes back to the Revolutionary War,” former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says about Trump’s attack on mail-in voting. “…It is a safe method, and it's just an effort by Trump and the Republicans to stop people from voting.” https://t.co/puMLaa4hGJ pic.twitter.com/G4zxIVADUj
