Womp Womp: Harry Reid Changes His Mind on Birthright Citizenship Because Trump or Something

Back in 1993, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid declared birthright citizenship "insane" and decried the idea that any baby born to an illegal alien in the United States automatically becomes an American citizen. Guy detailed Reid's comments earlier today:

But because President Trump has taken up the issue in recent days, Reid has changed his mind. 

"In 1993, around the time Donald Trump was gobbling up tax-free inheritance money from his wealthy father and driving several companies into bankruptcy. I made a mistake. After I proposed that awful bill, my wife Landra immediately sat me down and said, 'Harry, what are you doing, don't you know that my father is an immigrant?' She set me straight. And in my 36 years in Washington, there is no more valuable lesson I learned than the strength and power of immigrants and no issue I worked harder on than fixing our immigration system," Reid released in a statement Wednesday afternoon.

"I had the privilege of learning from heroes like Astrid Silva who came to this nation as a little girl ad has emerged as a powerful leader. Immigrants are the lifeblood of our nation. They are our power and our strength," Reid continued. "This president wants to destroy not build, to stoke hatred instead of unity. He can tweet whatever he wants while he sits around watching TV, but he is profoundly wrong."

When has Harry Reid been sincere about anything?
