Addressing his supporters at a Republican marketing campaign rally in New Hampshire on Friday, Trump stated he would help seeing a feminine president within the US however instructed that his daughter and senior White House adviser Ivanka Trump could be a greater candidate for such a job.
Harris, 55, was a presidential aspirant till final 12 months earlier than she dropped out of the race due to lack of common help. Harris returned to political limelight after Joe Biden, the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, picked her as his operating mate within the November three election.
Born to a Jamaican father and an Indian mom, Harris is the primary Indian-American and first Black lady to be picked by a significant American political social gathering for the highest put up.
“You know I want to see the first woman president also, but I don’t want to see a woman president get into that position the way she’d do it, and she’s not competent,” Trump stated.
“She’s not competent,” he stated amidst applause from his supporters, just a few of whom screamed Ivanka Trump, at an election rally on Friday.
“They’re all saying, ‘we want Ivanka’. I don’t blame you,” he stated responding to his supporters.

Trump stated Harris withdrew from the Democratic Party’s presidential race earlier than main season kicked off as her recognition dropped right down to single digit.
“How about her? Sheer beauty? What a beauty though. They pick a woman who starts off…She (Harris) starts off (her presidential campaign) sort of strong. She’s one of the favourites. Within a period of a few months, she goes down, down 15, 12, 11, nine, eight, five, three, two,” he stated, underlining the recognition downslide of Harris within the few months after her extremely spectacular marketing campaign launch.
“Then she goes, I’m going to leave because I’ve decided that I want to leave. I want to leave. She left (the race of presidency) because she wouldn’t have gotten any votes. She was terrible. And this would be your president possibly. I don’t think so. I don’t think so,” Trump stated, speculating on the chance that Harris may emerge as a Democratic presidential candidate in 2024.
Attacking Biden, Trump stated he’s operating on essentially the most excessive, far left platform of any nominee in American historical past.
“And of our foreign adversaries who are devising a plan to destroy the United States from within all they have to look, is that the Biden-Harris (ticket),” he stated.
