Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has a warning to fellow Democrats: Underestimate President Trump at your own peril.
Reid, who formerly represented Nevada for two decades, received a “thank you” from Trump on Twitter.
“Former Democrat Senator Harry Reid just stated that Donald Trump is very smart, much more popular than people think, is underestimated, and will be hard to beat in the 2020 Election,” Trump stated on Twitter on Monday. “Thank you Harry, I agree!?”
In an interview, Reid told CNNs David Axelrod, who had worked as the chief strategist in the Obama administration, that he previously didnt think Trump was “too smart,” but now he does not “believe that anymore.”
Trump is a “very, very smart man” who is “never, never willing to debate an issue on terms that arent his,” Reid, 79, told the host.
And despite the inquiry about impeachment, Reid believes Trump will be quite difficult to defeat in 2020.
“Anyone that thinks Trumps going to be beaten easily should have another thing coming,” he warned Democrats.
Reid moved to reshape Senate procedures during his time as majority leader, like the elimination of filibusters for most nominations by presidents.
In the interview, he also blasted Republican members of the Senate, claiming that they are “afraid to speak out” about impeachment.
