Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden took a dig at President Trump Tuesday night, highlighting the fact that Trump said recently that Sen. Kamala Harris, Biden’s newly announced vice presidential pick, would be a “fine choice” for a running mate.

Trump made the comments at the end of July as he was leaving the White House to fly to Texas.

“I think she’d be a fine choice. Kamala Harris. A fine choice,” Trump told reporters.

The Biden campaign included the quote in a release to supporters.

After months of speculation and the Democratic National Convention next week, Biden on Tuesday afternoon announced that Harris would be his running mate.

Harris is the first Black woman and first Asian American person to be a vice presidential candidate in American history.

In a statement, Biden cited Harris’ “record of accomplishment” as to why he chose her.

“There is no door Kamala won’t knock on, no stone she’ll leave unturned, if it means making life better — for the people,” Biden said. “She will wake up every day — like I will — thinking about how to make life better for people. How to rebuild our country back better. How to make it more just. How to win the next fight in the battle for the soul of this nation.”

The Trump campaign didn’t waste anytime to launch an opening salvo towards the finalized Democratic ticket. In a new attack ad aimed at Harris, the senator is labeled as “a phony.”

“Clearly, Phony Kamala will abandon her own morals, as well as try to bury her record as a prosecutor, in order to appease the anti-police extremists controlling the Democrat Party,” Katrina Pierson, senior adviser to the Trump campaign, said.
