President Donald Trump slammed Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) on Tuesday after news broke that presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden had selected her to be his running mate for the upcoming election.

“She is a person that’s told many, many stories that weren’t true,” Trump told reporters during a news conference. “She’s very big into raising taxes. She wants to slash funds for our military at a level that nobody can even believe. She is against fracking. She’s against petroleum products. I mean, how do you do that and go into Pennsylvania or Ohio or Oklahoma or the great state of Texas? She’s against fracking. Fracking’s a big deal.”

“She’s in favor of socialized medicine, where you’re going to lose your doctors,” Trump continued. “You’re going to lose your plan. She wants to take your healthcare plans away from 180 million Americans. 180 million Americans that are very happy with their health insurance and she wants to take that away. So she was my number one pick. I mean, as they would say, because hopefully you’ll start college football. She was my number one draft pick. And we’ll see how she works out. She did very, very poorly in the primaries as you know. She was expected to do well. She ended up at right around 2% and spent a lot of money.”

“She had a lot of things happening. And so I was a little surprised that he picked her,” Trump concluded. “I’ve been watching her for a long time. And I was a little surprised. She was extraordinarily nasty to Kavanaugh, Judge Kavanaugh then, now Justice Kavanaugh. She was nasty to a level that was just a horrible thing, the way she was. The way she treated, now Justice Kavanaugh. And I won’t forget that soon. So she did very poorly in the primaries and now she’s chosen. So let’s see how that all works out.”

TRANSCRIPT:

REPORTER: So regarding Senator Harris’ record, you had a pretty quick response to that. You had an ad out that said that she was a phony and I wanted to drill down.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: That she was a what?

REPORTER: A phony. And I wanted to ask about a specific example that a lot of people thought was a phony moment. As San Francisco DA, she oversaw according to the Mercury News, 1900 marijuana convictions. But she was asked in an interview last year if she had smoked marijuana and she appeared to joke and according to some people lied and say that she was listening to Snoop Dogg and Tupac. While their music hadn’t come out at the time while she said she was smoking pot listening to it. Why would she lie about that? Do you see that as more evidence that has surpassed a marijuana liability?

TRUMP: Well, she lied. I mean, she said things that were untrue. She is a person that’s told many, many stories that weren’t true. She’s very big into raising taxes. She wants to slash funds for our military at a level that nobody can even believe. She is against fracking. She’s against petroleum products. I mean, how do you do that and go into Pennsylvania or Ohio or Oklahoma or the great state of Texas? She’s against fracking. Fracking’s a big deal.

She’s in favor of socialized medicine, where you’re going to lose your doctors. You’re going to lose your plan. She wants to take your healthcare plans away from 180 million Americans. 180 million Americans that are very happy with their health insurance and she wants to take that away. So she was my number one pick. I mean, as they would say, because hopefully you’ll start college football. She was my number one draft pick. And we’ll see how she works out. She did very, very poorly in the primaries as you know. She was expected to do well. She ended up at right around 2% and spent a lot of money.

She had a lot of things happening. And so I was a little surprised that he picked her. I’ve been watching her for a long time. And I was a little surprised. She was extraordinarily nasty to Kavanaugh, Judge Kavanaugh then, now Justice Kavanaugh. She was nasty to a level that was just a horrible thing, the way she was. The way she treated, now Justice Kavanaugh. And I won’t forget that soon. So she did very poorly in the primaries and now she’s chosen. So let’s see how that all works out.
