President Trump responded to Joe Biden's selection of Sen. Kamala Harris to join his 2020 presidential campaign as the candidate for vice president.
- She is a person that's told many, many stories that weren't true. She's very big into raising taxes. She wants to slash funds for our military at a level that nobody can even believe. She is against fracking. Fracking is-- she's against petroleum products. I mean, how do you do that and go into Pennsylvania or Ohio or Oklahoma or the great state of Texas? She's against fracking. Fracking is a big deal.
She's in favor of socialized medicine, where you're going to lose your doctors. You're going to lose your plan. She wants to take your health care plans away from 180 million Americans. 180 million Americans that are very happy with their health insurance, and she wants to take that away. So she was my number one pick.
I mean, she was-- as they would say, because hopefully you'll start college football, she was my number one draft pick. And we'll see how she works out. She did very, very poorly in the primaries, as you know. She was expected to do well, and she was-- she ended up at right around 2% and spent a lot of money. She had a lot of things happening. And so I was a little surprised that he picked her.
I've been watching her for a long time, and I was a little surprised. She was extraordinarily nasty to Kavanaugh-- Judge Kavanaugh then, now-Justice Kavanaugh. She was nasty to a level that was just a horrible thing the way she was-- the way she treated now-Justice Kavanaugh, and I won't forget that soon.
But as far as Kamala is concerned, she's a big tax-raiser. She's a big slasher of funds for our military. And she's got a lot of difficult things that she's going to have to explain. Plus, she was very, very nasty to-- one of the reasons that surprised me, she was very-- she was probably nastier than even Pocahontas to Joe Biden. She was very disrespectful to Joe Biden.
And it's hard to pick somebody that it's that disrespectful. She said things during the debates-- during the Democrat primary debates-- that were horrible about Sleepy Joe. And I would think that he wouldn't have picked.
I would take him over Kamala and the horrible way she, again, treated Justice Kavanaugh. That was a horrible event. I thought it was terrible for her. I thought was terrible for our nation. I thought she was the meanest, the most horrible, most disrespectful of anybody in the US Senate. She's also known, from what I understand, as being just about the most liberal person in the US Senate.
And I would've thought that Biden would have tried to stay away from that a little bit, because with what they're doing with open borders and sanctuary cities where they're trying to protect sanctuary cities, which is also protecting a large number of criminals-- with all of the things that they're doing-- Second Amendment-- they want to take away your Second Amendment or modify it to a point where it's essentially no longer the Second Amendment. I would have thought he would have gone a different way. Thank you very much, everybody.
