In a bitter attack in the US Presidential elections, Donald Trump calls Harris a communist.
Vice President Mike Pence, 61, and Harris, 55, came face-to-face in the vice presidential debate on Wednesday, which saw sparring over Trump’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, jobs, China, racial tensions and climate change. Trump and Biden have separately lauded their respective deputies.
Donald Trump in a scathing attack on Thursday said, “I thought that wasn’t even a contest last night. She was terrible. I don’t think you could get worse. And totally unlikable. Harris is a Communist. She’s left of (Senator) Bernie (Sanders). Harris rated left of Bernie by everybody. She’s a Communist.”
The interview which was taken over phone lasted an hour. It was the first one after his recovery from the military hospital where he was treated for Covid-19.
“She is a Communist. She’s not a Socialist. She’s well beyond a socialist. Take a look at her views. She wants to open up the borders to allow killers and murderers and rapists to pour into our country,” Trump said in his sharpest attack against Harris.
In a tweet later, the US President said, if a Republican lied like Biden and Harris do, then the “Lame stream media would be calling them out at a level never recorded before. For one year they called for no fracking and big tax increases. Now they each say opposite. Fake news is working overtime!”
Mike Pence, Vice Presidential Candidate told a rally in Nevada on Thursday,”Let me be clear, last night’s vice presidential debate was not just a debate between two candidates, I think it was a debate between two visions.”
“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris want higher taxes, open borders,they want to defund the police, and if you couldn’t work it out last night they want to pack the Supreme Court,” he claimed.
“A lot of talk this morning on TV about who won the debate. I think when you compare the Biden-Harris agenda with what Donald Trump has done and will continue to do for the country… Donald Trump won the debate hands down,” Pence concluded.
