Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid called Donald Trump “a human leech” and “notorious con artist” who “is only trying to help one person – Donald Trump.”
Sen. Reid, of course, is referencing the numerous charges of impropriety (to put it lightly) surrounding Trump University, the Trump Foundation, and now the Trump Organization following a new report from Newsweek.
The piece is very, very thorough, but I’m only going to quote a few things because of the time of the Senate. The article says that if elected, Trump would be: “The most conflicted president in American history,” and, “almost every foreign policy decision he makes will raise serious conflicts of interest and ethical quagmires.” The author details how Donald Trump, his family and his businesses have multiple, questionable partnerships with foreign governments, political parties and even criminals.
The Newsweek article ends with this declaration: “Never before has an American candidate for president had so many financial ties with American allies and enemies, and never before has a business posed such a threat to the United States.”
We face this from Donald Trump, a candidate and notorious con artist. Donald Trump is only trying to help one person – Donald Trump. I don’t care if he wants to be president or city commissioner, Donald Trump is in it to benefit Donald Trump.
If given the opportunity, Donald Trump will turn America into a big scam just like Trump University. I can’t make up this stuff. Here’s what one of his managers said at Trump University – head of sales. Here is what he said it was: “A fraudulent scheme and that it preyed upon the elderly and uneducated to separate them from their money.” That’s one of the managers of Trump University. That’s a direct quote.
Sen. Reid concludes: “Let’s be clear about Donald Trump. He is a spoiled brat, raised in plenty, who inherited a fortune and used his money to make more money. And he did a lot of it by swindling working men and women. 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.”
Tell ‘em, Harry.
