Reid Praises Trump for Being ‘Authentic’

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump received praise from an unlikely source on Thursday.

Sen. Harry Reid praised Trump for being “authentic.”

“You may not agree with his authenticity, but he’s authentic. People like that. He speaks his mind, which reminds me of me once in a while. I think that’s something that’s refreshing,” Reid said, according to CNN.

“He just says whatever he thinks is appropriate. I think some of the stuff is not so good but he does that. People identify with that,” he added.

The Hill reports:

Although Trump’s style wouldn’t “sell very well” with Democrats, Reid said, it’s resonating with Republicans.

Reid also slammed Trump’s rival Marco Rubio for continually saying the Democrats are scared to run against him. Reid laughed when asked whether the Democrats were worried about Rubio.

“He came in third in one election, in Iowa,” he said. “He came in fifth in New Hampshire. I’m not quaking in my boots, I’ll tell you that.”
