Harry Reid: Trump Must 'Reverse Course' on Election Results

Sen. Harry Reid joined a chorus of Republicans and Democrats condemning Donald Trump over his refusal to unequivocally accept the results of the election. 

“Donald Trump’s refusal to accept the results of the upcoming election is horrifying," Reid said in a statement. "He must immediately reverse course and state that he will accept the results of our free and fair elections. The statement must come from Trump’s own lips.

Trump Says Mosul Invasion Launched to Make Clinton 'Look Good'

Donald Trump on Wednesday said that the US-backed operation to drive ISIS from its stronghold in Mosul was somehow launched as a result of Hillary Clinton’s influence.

“She wanted to look good for the election, so we’re going in,” Trump said.

The long-expected military offensive against the northern Iraqi city began Monday, with an announcement by Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi.

Around 30,000 troops, including Iraqi army soldiers, Kurdish forces, and a variety of armed groups are participating — the largest military operation in Iraq since U.S. troops left the country in 2011.The effort is supported by U.S. airstrikes, as well as U..S Army Apache helicopters. Around one hundred U.S. troops are serving as embedded advisers, and thousands more Americans are serving further behind the front lines.

However, there is no indication that Clinton, who stepped down as secretary of state three years ago — at the start of Barack Obama’s second term as president — had anything to do with the launch of the operation.

“I’m just amazed that he seems to think that the Iraqi government launched this invasion to help me in the election,” Clinton said.

Clinton defended her proposal to impose a no-fly zone in Syria, despite the risks it could pose.
