on Tuesday said Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) was his “number one pick” to be named presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s running mate, knocking her unsuccessful presidential bid and complaining at length that she was “nasty” to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Trump was asked during a briefing – ostensibly about the coronavirus pandemic – about Harris’ record and her potential effect on the race.
“She was my number one pick. I mean she was… my number one draft pick, and we’ll see how she works out,” Trump said in his first public comments since Biden announced Harris as his running mate earlier Tuesday. “She did very, very poorly in the primaries as you know. She was expected to do well. And she ended up right around 2 percent and spent a lot of money. She had a lot of things happening. So I was a little surprised she picked her.
