The Senate was back in session Tuesday. But before getting down to business, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid had a few things to get off his chest.
"A man who lost the election by 2 million votes — or more — is now the president-elect," Reid said at the beginning of his speech on the Senate floor.
Citing reports of an increase in hate crimes since the election, Reid said, "We have the responsibility to be the voice of millions of Americans sitting at home, afraid that they're not welcome anymore in Donald Trump's America. We have the responsibility to prevent Trump's bullying and aggressive behavior from being normalized in the eyes of America."
