Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid doesn’t think much of President Donald Trump, his morals or his management style.
The 79-year-old Reid, who is dying from pancreatic cancer, once served as Nevada’s gaming chairman in the 1970s, and some of his experiences were incorporated into the Martin Scorsese film “Casino” — but he doesn’t agree that Trump functions like a mob boss, reported the New York Times.
“Organized crime is a business, and they are really good with what they do,” said Reid, who was targeted for assassination by the Mafia. “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 then blasted Trump’s character, much like fellow Mormon Mitt Romney did in a scathing Washington Post op-ed published as he prepares to join the U.S. Senate.
“Trump is an interesting person,” Reid said. “He is not immoral but is amoral. Amoral is when you shoot someone in the head, it doesn’t make a difference. No conscience.”
“I think he is without question the worst president we’ve ever had,” he added. “We’ve had some bad ones, and there’s not even a close second to him. He’ll lie. He’ll cheat. You can’t reason with him.”
