"We face through Donald Trump a candidate, a notorious con artist. Donald Trump is only trying to help one person: Donald Trump," Reid said from the Senate floor. "Given the opportunity, Donald Trump will turn America into a big scam, just like Trump University."

Reid's remarks came after Newsweek reported that The Trump Organization's foreign business would present a conflict of interest that could undercut the Republican presidential nominee's foreign policy if he wins the White House.
 
Trump on Thursday morning told "Fox and Friends" that he would cut ties with his businesses and have his children and executives run his organization if he wins. 
 
The outgoing Senate Democratic leader — calling Trump a "spoiled brat" and "human leech" — said Trump built up his wealth by "swindling" Americans. 
 
"Why would he change as president? The answer is simple: Trump won't change. He is asking us to let him get rich scamming America," he said. "We can't chance the sovereignty of this country on a con man like Trump."
 
Reid frequently uses the Senate floor and weekly press conferences to rip into Trump, including saying this week that Trump isnt' "slim and trim" and has a "head-scratching slogan."
 
  
Democrats have routinely called on GOP lawmakers to drop their brash nominee. With Republicans defending 24 Senate seats in November, Democrats hope Trump will negatively impact down-ballot GOP candidates and give them an edge to win back the upper chamber. 
 
Democrats need to win back five Senate seats — or four if they also retain the White House — to take the majority.
