Donald Trump is a good conservative, right? Well then why in the world did Minority Leader Harry Reid reminisce on the Senate floor Wednesday about the “good old days” when Trump did a fundraiser “or two” for him?
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) backpedaled Wednesday after joking that, among the current Republican presidential field, he’s considering backing Donald Trump for the nomination.
“Look, we’ve gotten along fine,” the Democratic leader told reporters. “With that bunch of people running, I’m kind of pulling for him.”
Reid made the remark after the GOP front-runner touted his ability to work with top Democrats in Congress, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), expected to be the next Senate Democratic leader.
Asked about Trump’s statement, Reid added, “Oh, I remember the good old days when he did a fundraiser or two for me.”
Yeah, Hillary Clinton is pulling for Trump, too.
In case you’ve forgotten, didn’t know, or simply choose to ignore the facts, Reid isn’t the only Democrat for whom Trump has raised money:
Most controversially, he provided millions to the Clinton Foundation, a charitable corporation run by his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and her husband, former president Bill Clinton. Those funds, he indicated, were successful in convincing the Clintons to attend his wedding.
So not only has Trump donated to Democrats, but he’s also admitted that he’s totally okay with buying favors. That’s something a real stand-up conservative would do, alright.
