Without any evidence to back up his claim, Harry Reid blames Donald Trump’s election win for hate crimes across America. Harry Reid is just muck raking. It’s as simple as that. The thankfully outgoing Democratic leader continued his rhetorical assault on what he calls the President-elect’s “bullying, aggressive behavior.”

Reid reiterated his call for Trump to revoke his appointment of Steve Bannon as White House chief strategist, aligning with most fellow Democrats who have said Bannon is an extremist with disturbing ties to white nationalists. And after entering reports of election-related hate crimes into the Senate record, Reid challenged colleagues to read them.
“I cannot believe anyone in this chamber wants to defend the hateful acts that are being committed in Trump’s name,” Reid said. “They lead to one unavoidable conclusion: many of our fellow Americans believe that Trump’s election validates the kind of bullying, aggressive behavior Trump modeled on a daily basis.”
But the No. 2 Senate Republican, John Cornyn of Texas, offered a quick rebuke, saying Reid was only exacerbating any tensions in the nation.
“Surely he’s entitled to his opinion, but it does nothing to contribute to the healing of our country,” Cornyn said on the floor after a Reid speech that he described as “continuing to pile on.”
Reid gave no indication that he would back away from criticizing Trump, whom he said has “lost the popular vote by more than two million votes.” Hillary Clinton’s lead over Trump is currently projected to exceed 1 million, although votes are still being counted in at least three states.

There is of course wide spread evidence of massive voter fraud which changes the whole ‘popular vote’ landscape.
Harry Reid has once again proven he has no problem with lying to the American people on the Senate floor.
