“Trump is not going to be beaten easily” said former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, now retired.
In an interview with CNN, Reid said that “[Trump] is a man who has a stalwart 40 percent of people out there who will vote for him no matter what he does. As Donald Trump said, ‘I could shoot somebody in Times Square, they would still support me.’ That’s sad, but probably true. So No. 1, I repeat: He is not going to be beaten easily. He’s going to take a campaign of wisdom and patience, but he is beatable for sure.”
“I don’t think he’s intellectually a powerhouse, but I think he’s basically a very, very smart man. No matter what the subject, any argument he involves himself in, it’s on his terms. You’re always arguing against him,” Harry Reid added.
“We have these Republicans that are afraid to speak out against the things he does that are absolutely wrong and they know they are wrong,” Reid said pointing out that with exception of Sen. Romney and Sen. Sasse others don’t dare to criticize the President.
