Word’s in the air that if Joe Biden wins this year’s elections and does not seek a second term, Harris may become the front-runner for the White House in 2024.
Harris, who is the first woman of colour in America on a major-party presidential ticket, has been insulted by Trump many times before. At the Republican National Convention, the President had said that Harris was “not competent” and that his daughter Ivanka would fair better as a vice-presidential candidate. He has even falsely accused her of demeaning other women, in a remark that was considered extremely racist.
Trump slammed Biden’s “rhetoric” against the coronavirus vaccine by Biden and Harris, claiming that he had a credible source of information regarding the COVID vaccine’s efficacy and reliability. “Harris is talking about disparaging a vaccine so that people don’t think the achievement was a great achievement,” he said.
The president asserted that a coronavirus vaccine would be available in “record time”, maybe by the end of the year and even before the November 3 elections. This, he asserted, had unnerved his political opponents.
“We signed a great trade deal (with China) but the ink was not dry when the plague (COVID-19) came in so I view that trade deal much differently than I did before,” he added.
Notably, the US Presidential elections are scheduled to be held on November 3, this year.
