Donald Trump launches attack on Kamala Harris calling her "nasty", "meanest" and "disrespectful"
Trump has a history of calling female political rivals "nasty".
It didn't take long for US President Donald Trump and his campaign to begin their attacks on Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's running mate in November’s US presidential election.
Trump made his comments from the White House while his campaign released an attack video (you can view it at the bottom of the article) on Harris within minutes of the announcement, in which the narrator called her "a phoney".
“I was surprised that he picked her,” Trump told reporters on Tuesday.
“I have been watching her for a long time. I was a little surprised. She was extraordinarily nasty to Brett Kavanaugh — Judge Kavanaugh then, now Justice Kavanaugh.
"She was nasty to a level that was just a horrible thing the way she treated now-Justice Kavanaugh, and I won’t forget that soon.”
He also called her "the meanest" and "disrespectful".
The Trump campaign also followed it up with a number of emails attacking both Biden and Harris, with one of them reading, "Joe Biden and Kamala Harris Would Destroy America."
It also called Biden "a Trojan horse for the radical left's extreme agenda".
It seems that Trump's opinion on Harris has changed somewhat over the years as he, along with his daughter Ivanka, donated thousands of dollars to Harris' campaigns for attorney general between 2011 and 2013.
However, Harris’s presidential campaign said that she donated Trump’s $6,000 donation to an immigration group in 2015.
Harris is only the third woman from either major American political party to be selected as a vice presidential candidate and would be the first black Vice President if Biden beats Trump in November.
