"I just have trouble accepting him as a person, so frankly I don't see anything he's doing right," Reid told CNN.

Reid, 79, added that he respects former President George W. Bush despite their political differences, and that the 43rd president "would be Babe Ruth in this league that he's in with Donald Trump in the league."

"Donald Trump wouldn't make the team," he added.


The senator's comments, which aired on CNN's "New Day," elicited a response from Trump a short time after they were aired.

"Former Senator Harry Reid (he got thrown out) is working hard to put a good spin on his failed career," Trump tweeted. "He led through lies and deception, only to be replaced by another beauty, Cryin’ Chuck SchumerCharles (Chuck) Ellis SchumerNo agreement on budget caps in sight ahead of Memorial Day recess Ex-White House photographer roasts Trump: 'This is what a cover up looked like' under Obama Pelosi: Trump 'is engaged in a cover-up' MORE. Some things just never change!"

Reid, who during his time in the Senate called Bush the worst president the country had ever had, has since applied that title to Trump.

Reid, who served in the Senate from 1987 to 2017, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year. He told CNN he is in remission thanks to early detection and chemotherapy.
