Harry Reid Blasts Trump
"Worst President We've Ever Had"
Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on President Donald Trump:
“He’ll lie. He’ll cheat. You can’t reason with him.”

In a rare interview with the New York Times Magazine's Mark Leibovich published today, former Senate Majority leader Harry Reid held nothing back in a scathing assessment of President Donald J. Trump.
In the past, Reid had merely dismissed Trump as a “spoiled brat,” a “con man” and a “human leech”, but in retrospect had nonetheless underestimated him. Always outspoken, Reid had in early 2016 characterized Trump as “a big fat guy” who “didn’t win many fights”, but still hadn't taken the full measure of Trump as President of the Untied States.
Now, diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer, Reid did not mince words about the president. “I think he is without question the worst president we’ve ever had,” he said. “We’ve had some bad ones, and there’s not even a close second to him.” He added: “He’ll lie. He’ll cheat. You can’t reason with him.”
Reid objected to the oft-repeated comparisons made of Trump, most notably by former FBI Director James Comey, to the head of a Mafia crime family, with "omerta" codes of silence and loyalty, and a fear-based leadership style.
Having served as Chairman of Nevada's Gaming Commission in the 1970's, Reid had known the "piranha bowl" of Las Vegas politics well. (Some of the plot of the film “Casino” was based loosely on Reid’s experiences.) There were numerous threats to his life and at least one actual attempt (a bomb discovered under the hood of his family car).
Once in the mob cross-hairs himself, Reid said,“Organized crime is a business and they are really good with what they do. But they are better off when things are predictable. In my opinion, they do not do well with chaos. And that’s what we have going with Trump".
Reid added: “Trump is an interesting person. He is not immoral but is amoral. Amoral is when you shoot someone in the head, it doesn’t make a difference. No conscience.”
