Troll So Hard: Harry Reid Demands That Trump Take The Naturalization Test

Donald Trump will announce Monday that he wants individuals entering the U.S. to take some kind of “ideological test” before they are admitted into the country.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) thinks Donald Trump needs to take a test before he is elected president.

In a press release Monday afternoon, Reid called on Trump to take the U.S. naturalization test – the test that immigrants must pass to become citizens of the United States. The test includes questions about the country’s history, founding, laws and Constitution.

“Since Donald Trump wants to impose new tests on immigrants, he
should take the one test every immigrant has to pass to become a United
States citizen. He would almost certainly fail, given his general ignorance and weak grasp of basic facts about American history, principles and functioning of our government,” Reid said. “The fact is, Donald Trump is nothing more than a spoiled, unpatriotic drain on society who has earned nothing and helped no one.”

Reid said that unlike immigrants,”Donald Trump represents none of the qualities that make America great. “

“Immigrants work hard to get here and become Americans, while Trump
inherited everything from his father and works hardest at Tweeting
insults and ripping off hard-working people with two-bit scams,” Reid said.

Reid also claimed that while immigrants must denounce loyalties to foreign governments to become citizens, Trump “plays footsie with Putin and invites the Russian government to launch cyber attacks against our country.”
