Washington: Democratic vice presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris becoming US president would be a ‘terrible thing’ for both the country and women. This was said Tuesday by President Donald Trump said as Americans were voting in one of the most divisive bitter presidential polls in decades. Donald Trump, 74, is seeking his re-election in the presidential elections. He is facing the toughest electoral battle of his life from his Democratic rival Joe Biden, 77, and his running mate Kamala Harris, 56. They are leading in opinion polls.
The Republican leader said that the US would never remain the same if Biden-Harris combo emerges winner. “Our country could never be the same country if they win, because they are radicalised left,” Trump said.
“Joe Biden will never call the shots and if he does, he’s not going to be there very long. He’s got a vice-president who’s further left than (Senator) Bernie Sanders. She would be, I think, a terrible first representative,” Trump alleged. “If she became the first woman president, I think it would be a terrible thing for the US. I think it would be a terrible thing for women,” he added.
Harris is the first ever Indian-American, Black and African-American to be a vice-presidential candidate of a major political party. If elected, she would break another glass ceiling and would be just one step away from being the president of the US. In that case she would be the first ever woman president of the US.
“I look forward to the first woman president,” Trump said in response to a question. “But I wouldn’t look forward to her being that person. I think it would be a very bad thing. I think you’d have a country that would become a socialist country, if they pack the courts, that would be a terrible thing,” said the president.
Trump reiterated that Biden is beyond his prime time in life and he is having a tough time from the radicalised left of the Democratic party who have taken over the party. “That’s a tough group to run and they would take the US into a terrible place. But Joe’s going to have a hard time. He’s not going to be able to handle them,” claimed Trump.
