Trump Says Kamala Harris Is Actually Better Than Biden Despite Her ‘Bad’ Moments



During a Friday interview, former President Donald Trump flipped his stance on Vice President Kamala Harris, saying he believes she is a “better” option for the Democratic nomination than President Biden.

Trump, 77, told radio host Hugh Hewitt “I think she’d be better than him, actually,” despite telling independent journalist Tucker Carlson a very different answer when asked the same question in August. 

Trump was asked by Hewitt about Harris’ presidential ambitions, as Democrats raise the alarm about Biden’s age and faltering poll numbers. 

“Mr. President, if people vote for Joe Biden, are they really voting for Kamala Harris?” Hewitt had initially asked.

“I think so,” Trump answered. “I mean, let’s see what happens. I’m not sure that he gets to the starting gate, to be honest. I don’t know … It seems like he’s locked into her for a lot of reasons.

“It would seem like the Democrats, if he doesn’t run, have to run her. That’s what all of the professionals like you are saying. I’m not sure that that’s correct, but that’s what they’re saying,” he said. “Yeah, you’re locked into her. And she might be, I can’t say worse. I think she’d be better than him, actually. I actually think that.”

Earlier in the interview, Trump referred to the 81-year-old Biden as “grossly incompetent,” adding that he was just as ineffective “25 years ago” while he was still serving as a U.S. senator.

“He’s not fit for office. And I really think he’s a danger to democracy. I really believe that because of his incompetence,” Trump said.

Trump’s “danger to democracy” comment echoes Democratic criticism of him over the last several years, and has been cast in new light since the Republican challenger was recently kicked off the ballot in Colorado for “insurrection,” under the 14th Amendment, despite no criminal charges accusing him of such an action.

Trump is also facing four indictments across multiple different states for alleged election interference. 

During the former president’s interview with Carlson, which was broadcast on X, Trump told the host that “a lot of people” wanted Harris kicked off the Democratic ticket in 2024, saying her public appearances gave a “bad” impression. 

“I don’t think other people would stand for it,” Trump said of Harris being removed as Biden’s running mate. “She has some bad moments. Her moments are almost as bad as his, I think his are worse actually.”

“She speaks in, uh, in rhyme. It’s weird. It’s weird,” Trump added. “The way she talks, ‘The bus will go here. And then the bus will go there. Because that’s what buses do.’ It’s weird. The whole thing is weird.”

Harris’ viral comments occurred during an October 2022 speech in Seattle, where she touted the Biden administration’s $1 billion funding of electric school buses. She mused about the “nostalgia” the sight of a “yellow school bus” reminded her of. 

“Who doesn’t love a yellow school bus, right? Can you raise your hand if you love a yellow school bus? Many of us went to school on the yellow school bus, right? It’s part of our experience growing up,” she said in an address at Lumen Field. “It’s part of a nostalgia, a memory of the excitement and joy of going to school to be with your favorite teacher, to be with your best friends and to learn. The school bus takes us there.”

Harris recently hit out at Trump over his comments saying that illegal aliens crossing into the U.S. were “poisoning the blood of our country,” before attempting to describe the stakes of next year’s election. 

“You know, every election cycle we talk about this is the most election of our lifetime,” Harris said on “The Last Word” with MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell. “Lawrence, this one is, this one is.”
