“@KamalaHarris started strong in the Democrat Primaries, and finished weak, ultimately fleeing the race with almost zero support," Trump tweeted.

"That’s the kind of opponent everyone dreams of!”  


Harris ended her presidential campaign last December after struggling to convert early enthusiasm into sustained support.

Trump's tweet came after his reelection released two ads attacking Harris, painting her as a far-left candidate. In an ad sent out on Twitter quickly after the Democratic ticket was finalized, the Trump campaign dubbed them "Slow Joe and Phony Kamala.

In a statement, the Trump campaign attacked Harris over swipes she took at Biden during the primary debate and her history as a prosecutor, which has drawn criticism from progressives. 

Harris will be the first woman of color on a major party’s presidential ticket after she is nominated during the Democratic National Convention next week.
