    Reid to media: Call Trump a racist

    Reid to media: Call Trump a racist




    Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) blasted reporters on Monday, arguing they are shying away from calling GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump a racist.

    "The media has a bunch of words to describe his actions. ...Yet there's always one word that many of the press conspicuously avoid: 'racist.' They never label Trump a racist, but he is a racist," Reid said from the Senate floor hours before the first presidential debate between the businessman and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

    The outgoing Senate Democratic leader added that Trump says "racist things" and doesn't believe they are wrong. He ripped Trump for backing the false "birther" theory that President Obama was not born in the United States.

    "Why do reporters and pundits abstain from calling Trump what he is, a racist? His bigotry has been on display since the early days of his business career," he said. "Trump [also] led the so-called birther movement to delegitimize our first African-American president."

    Reid also pointed to a Washington Post article from earlier this year on a federal investigation into whether Trump Management discriminated against minorities in housing applications, violating the Fair Housing Act, during the 1970s.

    Reid ó who has hit Trump from the Senate floor for months ó has stepped up his attacks since the GOP presidential nominee alluded earlier this month to serious injuries the minority leader received in an exercising accident.

    He added Monday that House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) are supporting Trump even though Ryan called the billionaire's comments about a federal judge overseeing cases against Trump University the "textbook definition of racism."

    "It's time for Republicans to stop closing their eyes to Donald Trump's racism, and it's time for reporters and journalists to be honest with the American people," Reid added. "They owe America the truth."

    LOL!! That is hilarious!! Donald Trump is not a racist!! He's as color-blind as you get!! The Dems are really in a panic. And rightly so, but to continue to throw this phony race card at Trump, is wrong, wrong, wrong. It's not only wrong for Trump, it's wrong for the people of our country to be told someone is a racist by a member of the US Senate when that person doesn't have a racist bone in his body.

    It's time to really, really stand up for Trump on this issue. This is the last card these Trump Haters have, and we need to take it away from them and tear it up right in their dishonest corrupt faces. And, we need to do it now. NOW!!
