Trump Says Kamala Harris Is A ‘Monster’ And A ‘Communist’ Who Will Replace Biden ‘Within Months’
President Donald Trump blasted Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) as a “monster” and a “communist” who will replace Biden “within months” if elected.
Trump: Everything Kamala Said ‘Is A Lie’
During an interview with Fox Business on Thursday morning, President Trump discussed what he thought about the vice presidential debate that took place on Thursday night between Senator Harris and Vice President Mike Pence.
The President had on Wednesday night shared a video on Twitter, showing previous comments from both Senator Harris and Vice President Biden in which both had said that they wanted to ban fracking, despite Harris denying this during the debate itself.

“This monster that was on stage with Mike Pence, who destroyed her last night by the way, but this monster, she says no no there won’t be fracking, everything she said is a lie,” the President told Fox’s Maria Bartriromo in the hour long interview.

Harris Is ‘Totally Unlikeable’
The President went on to describe Harris as “horrible,” “totally unlikeable,” and a “communist,” who would replace Biden as President “within months” if they won the presidential debate in November. Biden wouldn’t even last “two months” in the job, the President argued.
The spectre of Senator Harris taking over the job from Vice President Biden has been looming across the campaign trail, with Biden potentially taking up the mantel of President in January next year at 78, breaking the current age record, set by President Trump.
During the campaign, both Harris and Biden have “slipped up” in their remarks – Harris referred to what economic proposals would be put forward in a “Harris administration,” while Biden said a “Harris-Biden administration” would help military spouses find careers.

‘If And When’ Joe Decides To ‘Step Aside’
In August, CNN editor-at-large Chris Cillizza implied that Joe Biden would “step aside” for Harris to become president before he completes his full four-year term.
“At 55 years old, [Harris] represents a younger generation of leader — something that Biden, who will be 78 on Inauguration Day 2021, said was a major factor in his choice,” Cillizza wrote.
“What Biden did is make the pick that maximized his chances of continuing to make the race a straight referendum on Trump while also selecting someone, in Harris, whose resume suggests will be ready to step in if and when Biden decides to step aside,” Cillizza continued.
