Trump Says If Kamala Harris Becomes 1st Female President, She'll 'Rip the Country Apart'

Donald Trump appears to have tired of slamming Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Now he's lit into his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA). Of course, this comes along with all of the president's usual vile comments that he throws at women who don't play his game.

Trump said on Thursday evening at a rally in Wisconsin that a Harris presidency would "rip the country apart."

It's widely expected that should Biden win, he will only serve four years and then hand the reigns over to Harris. This made his choice of vice president nominee that much more crucial. He will be 78 just weeks after the election. It's assumed that he won't run again in 2024 when he's 82.

Trump tuned into the fact that Harris may become the president by default, meaning if Biden passes away while in office. "That is no way for a woman to become the first president, that's for sure," he said.

"And if a woman is going to become the first president of the United States, it can't be her," he insisted.

Last month, shortly after Biden picked Harris as his running mate, Trump was quick to rip into her. "The playbook on Kamala is pretty simple," said a source.

"Right now, the message on Biden – and it's the first effective frame the campaign has sustained on Biden — is that he's an empty shell for the radical left. Kamala Harris is a powerhungry politician. She comes across as ruthless. So it's a believable frame that she'd be running the administration for empty shell Joe Biden."

The source readily acknowledged that the strategy will likely bring about complaints of sexism from Democrats. Trump's allies, though, see it as consistent with the other Trump messaging about Biden and a great way to attack Harris.

"Anything Trump says about her will be [portrayed as] sexist," said a former White House aide who worked closely with the Trump campaign. "That won't determine the strategy, and it shouldn't."

"Not long ago, Kamala Harris called Joe Biden a racist and asked for an apology she never received," said Trump campaign senior adviser Katrina Pierson in a statement.

"Clearly, Phony Kamala will abandon her own morals as well as try to bury her record as a prosecutor in order to appease the anti-police extremists controlling the Democrat Party." Contrary to this statement, Harris said she was not calling the former vice president a racist during the first Democratic debate in 2019.

Trump's Twitter account was also showing a "Trump War Room" video that day slamming Harris as someone who entered the primary by "rushing to the radical left" and who later mentioned Biden's "racist policies" before voters "rejected" her. It goes on to mock "Slow Joe" for not being "smart" enough to reject her and choose her for a running mate.

Trump had his own words for Harris, calling her "nasty" as he does with all women he doesn't get along with. Where he really laid into her was during the questioning of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh when he was accused of rape during his college years. 

"I thought she was the meanest, the most horrible, most disrespectful of anybody in the U.S. Senate," he said.
