President Donald Trump described Sen. Kamala Harris as a “bad version” of failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
“She’s a bad version of Hillary,” Trump said in an interview with the New York Post. “She’s a person that will say whatever is necessary and in the end in [sic] gets her in trouble.”
The president described Harris’s record as “terrible,” pointing to ratings proving she is the most liberal senator in Congress.
“Yet the progressives hate her,” Trump mused.
Trump’s comments echoed attacks from his campaign, which immediately branded Harris as a “phony.”
“I think she changes her policy, she changes her tune, for every race, depending on who she needs,” Trump said. “She’s a user and she’s not a talented politician.”
He also criticized her for mistreating his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, during his confirmation hearings, describing her as “extraordinarily nasty.”
“She was the meanest, most horrible, most disrespectful than anybody in the U.S. Senate,” Trump said.
