President Donald Trump crushed Democrat vice presidential hopeful Kamala Harris in a campaign speech in New Hampshire on Friday, calling her “terrible” and stating plainly: “She’s not competent.”
According to The Hill, Trump said Friday that he’d love “to see the first woman president,” but he doesn’t “want to see a woman president get into that position the way she’d do it.” After all, he repeated, “she’s not competent.”
“And this would be your president, possibly?” Trump said, according to The Hill. “I don’t think so. I don’t think so.”
She’s not the one
Speaking Friday, Trump brought up Harris’ poor performance in her own Democratic presidential primary bid, a nod she ultimately lost to former Vice President Joe Biden.
“She starts off sort of strong. She’s one of the favorites,” Trump said of the California senator. “Within a period of a few months, she goes down, down — 15, 12, 11, 9, 8, 5, 3, 2. Then she goes: ‘I’m going to leave because I’ve decided that I want to leave.'”
Trump went on: “She left because she wouldn’t have gotten any votes. She was terrible.”
As Trump closed his remarks on Harris, those in the crowd apparently shared their own ideas for who should be the first woman commander-in-chief. “They’re all saying, ‘We want Ivanka,'” Trump quipped. “I don’t blame them.” Take a look:
“Hating Donald Trump”
President Trump hasn’t gone easy on Harris since she was announced as Biden’s pick to join the Democrat ticket — and there’s certainly a lot to take issue with. His most recent remarks, however, may have come in response to comments Harris made a day earlier about the Republican National Convention.
“Unlike the Democratic convention, which was very clear-eyed about the challenges we face and how we will tackle them, the Republican convention is designed for one purpose: to soothe Donald Trump’s ego, to make him feel good,” Harris said Thursday, according to The Hill.
The comments may come as somewhat of a surprise to conservatives, who largely viewed the Democratic National Convention (DNC) as an opportunity for those on the left to bash President Trump.
“The theme of the DNC has been all about hating Donald Trump, the cult of hatred, psychosis, and madness on some levels,” Fox News host Sean Hannity said on the third night of the Democrats’ convention, according to Fox, “with, of course, the vague, typical platitudes, bumper stickers, and slogans.”
