Harris repeatedly clashed with Biden during the primary election debates, most notably criticising his praise for the “civil” working relationship he had with former senators who favoured racial segregation.
The California senator of Indian-Jamaican heritage had long been considered the front-runner for the number two slot.
Reacting to the pick, Trump made reference to some of the criticisms of Biden by Harris during the Democrat’s party election.
He recalled her comments on policies; attacks on Biden, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The American leader lampooned her for saying she would take away fracking, establish socialized medicine, slash funds for the military and raise taxes.
He described Harris’ past actions as “nasty,” adding that she was even “nastier” to Biden.
Trump said the VP candidate was “very very nasty, to — one of the reasons that surprised me, she was very — she was probably nastier than even Pocahontas to Joe Biden. She was very disrespectful to Joe Biden, and it’s hard to pick somebody that’s that disrespectful.”
Senior Adviser of the Trump campaign, Katrina Pierson, noted that her choice reflected Biden’s “extreme agenda.”
“Harris called Joe Biden a racist and asked for an apology she never received. Clearly, phoney Kamala will abandon her own morals, as well as try to bury her record as a prosecutor, in order to appease the anti-police extremists controlling the Democratic Party.”
The official further derided Harris for favouring tax raise and government’s takeover of healthcare.
Pierson stated that she was a proof that Biden is “an empty shell.”
“Joe Biden is no moderate and with Harris as his ‘political living will,’ he is surrendering control of our nation to the radical mob with promises to raise taxes, cut police funding, kill energy jobs, open our borders and appease socialist dictators,” Pierson asserted.
