(Newser) – No matter the outcome of November's election, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid will never work with a President Trump—so the outspoken critic of the GOP nominee is having a little fun trolling him, reports the AP. His latest salvo: An online petition demanding that Donald Trump take the US citizenship test. The Nevada Democrat argues that Trump would likely fail and that he should be forced to prove otherwise before setting rules for new immigrants, for whom Trump has called for "extreme vetting." "Donald Trump is nothing more than a spoiled, unpatriotic drain on society who has earned nothing and helped no one," Reid says in an email sent from his fundraising committee. "And before he degrades immigrant families who work hard and give up everything they knew to come to this country, he should put up—or shut up."
