Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid called House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell spineless and cowards for not revoking their endorsements of Republican nominee Donald Trump for president, The Hill reports
Reid’s statement came as part of the growing bipartisan repudiation of Trump’s critical comments about the parents of Humayun Khan, a Muslim American soldier who was killed in Iraq.
But Reid’s criticism focused on the GOP leaders, who released statements praising the Khan family without mentioning Trump.
"Senator McConnell and Speaker Ryan approvingly spoke at Donald Trump’s convention, endorsed Donald Trump for president and believe he is mentally fit to sit in the Oval Office," The Hill reported Reid as saying. "Occasional statements that do nothing to repudiate Donald Trump's words and actions are spineless. Anything short of revoking their endorsements is cowardice. This shouldn't be hard. Donald Trump is a sexist and racist man who insults Gold Star parents, stokes fear of Muslims and sows hatred of Latinos. He should not be president and Republican leaders have a moral responsibility to say so."
Just a few days ago Reid said the CIA should give Trump fake intelligence briefings because he can’t be trusted with classified information, according to US News and World Report
, after the GOP candidate said Russian hackers should find and release Hillary Clinton’s controversial lost emails.
