President Donald Trump and ex-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid are still sparring, with Trump slamming the retired Nevada lawmaker as being a leader through "lies and deception" after CNN aired an interview Monday with Reid calling Trump the nation's worst president.
"Former Senator Harry Reid (he got thrown out) is working hard to put a good spin on his failed career," Trump tweeted minutes after the segment aired. "He led through lies and deception, only to be replaced by another beauty, Cryin’ Chuck Schumer. Some things just never change!"
Reid, 79, retired from the Senate a few weeks before Trump was inaugurated, after having been first elected to the House in 1982 and the Senate in 1986, becoming the Democratic leader in 2005.
Reid, who said he is in remission from pancreatic cancer, has not backed down from his slams on Trump, telling CNN's Dana Bash that he wishes his former foe, President George W. Bush, was in office "every day."
"He and I had our differences, but no one ever questioned his patriotism. Our battles were strictly political battles," Reid said. "There's no question in my mind that George Bush would be Babe Ruth in this league that he's in with Donald Trump in the league. Donald Trump wouldn't make the team."
Further, he said in the interview, recorded late last week that he has trouble accepting Trump "as a person" and doesn't see anything right.
He told Bash he misses "the battle" and follows the news, but as for being in office and sparring with Trump, "that's not for me now."
However, he dismissed calls for Trump's impeachment as a "waste of time," because Republicans control the Senate and are too "afraid" of Trump to get involved.
