‘She is super liberal,’ the president insisted in an interview with former Fox News commentator Eric Bolling on his show ‘America This Week’ on Sinclair. ‘I have actually heard that she is the most liberal person in Congress. More liberal than Bernie Sanders.’
Trump didn’t miss his opportunity to issue another round of attacks on Senator Harris after Biden announced last week she will be running on the Democratic ticket as his vice president.
‘Kamala’s a socialist,’ he continued in the one-on-one pre-recorded interview, adding that presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden had been ‘brought over’ to the far-left.
Comparing the vice presidential candidate to Sanders comes as the progressive Vermont senator prepares to throw his support – and in turn the support of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party – behind Biden and Harris amid concerns from far-left factions over some of Biden’s middle-of-the-line stances.
President Donald Trump assured Sunday morning in the wake of Joe Biden choosing Kamala Harris as his running mate that she is ‘the most liberal person in Congress’
‘[She is] more liberal than Bernie Sanders,’ Trump said during an interview. ’Kamala’s a socialist,’ he continued, adding: ’She’s really going to be running it’
During an interview with former Fox News host Eric Bolling (pictured) on his show ‘America This Week’ on Sinclair, Trump said Kamala is ‘not a person that’s liked’ and claimed ‘people will fall out of love with her very quickly’

Senator Bernie Sanders (center), and in turn the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, is throwing support behind Biden, a more middle-of-the-line Democrat, and Harris with a slew of media appearances and during a speaking slot at the Democratic Convention on Monday
‘She’s really going to be running it,’ Trump added of Harris, assuring Bolling: ‘She is a disaster.’
‘She’s not a person that’s liked,’ he lambasted the first black woman ever to appear on a major party’s presidential ballot. ‘I think people will fall out of love with her very quickly.’
Trump also pointed to the primary elections earlier this year, where Harris earned little support from Democratic voters.
She was one of the seven candidates who withdrew from the race after states began to certify candidates for ballot spots – meaning she didn’t even make the ballot in most states.
Trump has pointed to Harris earning only 2 per cent of the vote in elections where she appeared on the ticket, and claimed Sunday that primary elections ‘the ultimate accurate poll.’
Since Biden announced Harris last week, Trump has had some choice words for the half Indian, half Jamaican former California prosecutor, including calling her ‘mad’ and ‘nasty.’
‘She’s the worst in the Senate. She was the nastiest of anybody in the Senate. She was the worst, meanest person,’ Trump reiterated to Bolling. ‘I’ve never seen anything like it.’
Sanders is appearing for a round of virtual television interviews on several Sunday morning programs ahead of his Monday speech for the Democratic National Convention.
The independent Vermont lawmaker and former 2016 and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate will make a speech at the all-virtual event ahead of former first lady Michelle Obama’s remarks.
Also representing the progressive wing of the party will be New York City Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has a 60-second speaking slot on the second night of the four-night convention.
On Tuesday, Ocasio-Cortez will also share the virtual stage with Biden’s wife, Dr. Jill Biden, and former President Bill Clinton.
AOC was an organizer from Sanders’ campaign in the 2016 presidential race before launching her own political ambitions.
Sanders, a self-proclaimed Democratic socialist ran for the Democratic presidential primary in 2016 and 2020. He is shown here during a debate where he appeared on stage with both Harris and Biden
Biden vowed virtually from the time he became the last man standing in early April that he would choose a female running mate and received pressure in recent months to choose a woman of color in the midst of months-long nationwide Black Lives Matter protests.
During Trump’s interview with Bolling Sunday morning, the president lashed out against Democratic-run cities for continued unrest from the protests and riots sparked from outrage between the black community and law enforcement.
He said he was forced to act federally to stop some unrest because ‘Democratic-run cities’ do not give enough power to police officers and other state and local level law enforcement.
‘They have to respect law enforcement and they have to give law enforcement back their strength, back their teeth, back their power to protect people,’ Trump said.
Trump secured this week the endorsement of the New York Police Department, which is the country’s largest police union.
In the wide-range, yet shorter-than-usual Trump interview, the president urged that football should return in the fall, but only if players don’t kneel for the American flag or the National Anthem.
‘My answer: play football,’ Trump said when asked about the potential of players contracting coronavirus when in such close proximity to one another.
But he added: ‘If I see them not standing for our national anthem, I won’t be watching. And you know what? A lot of other people agree with me.’
Trump has been sparing with the NFL since he took office over players kneeling for the Star Spangled Banner and presentation of the American flag.’
‘They make millions and millions of dollars. They’ve got a great life. Think of it,’ Trump said of players protesting racial injustice and police brutality by kneeling on the field. ‘Their life is not bad. And they have to respect our country.’
