President Donald Trump attacked Democratic Vice Presidential Candidate Kamala Harris during a recent campaign stop in North Carolina, stating that Harris becoming the first woman president “would be an insult to our country,” according to The Hill.
“People don’t like her. Nobody likes her. She could never be the first woman president. She could never be. That would be an insult to our country,” Trump remarked to a crowd of supporters in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

This is not the first time that Trump criticized Harris. Last month, the president stated that she was ‘the meanest, the most horrible, most disrespectful’ US Senator.
“I have been watching her for a long time and I was a little surprised. She was extraordinarily nasty to Judge Kavanaugh, now Justice Kavanaugh,” Trump said. “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,’ he continued. “I thought she was the meanest, the most horrible, most disrespectful of anybody in the U.S. Senate,” he added.
Harris, who became the first Black woman to serve as attorney general in California and the second Black woman to be elected as a U.S. Senator, made history as the first Black woman to be chosen on either the Democratic or Republican Party’s presidential ticket. If elected, Harris would become the first woman, first Black, and first Asian American vice president of the United States.
She and Vice President Mike Pence will face-off in a debate on Oct. 7 at The University of Utah in Salt Lake City.
