Donald Trump’s win ‘emboldened the forces of hate’ in US, Harry Reid says

The Boston Globe reports:
Senate minority leader Harry Reid called Donald Trump’s win an election that “has emboldened the forces of hate and bigotry in America.”

“Watching white nationalists celebrate while innocent Americans cry tears of fear does not feel like America,” the Democrat from Nevada said in a statement Friday.

“Winning the Electoral College does not absolve Trump of the grave sins he committed against millions of Americans,” Reid said.

As the nation saw a second night of protests against his victory, President-elect Trump had called the demonstrators “professional protesters, incited by the media.” Hours later, he posted a message of unity, saying he loves “the fact that the small groups of protesters . . . have passion for our great country.”
