President Donald Trump has labeled U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), just announced as Joe Biden's vice presidential running mate, "phony," and Biden's "political living will."
"Not long ago Kamala Harris called Joe Biden a racist and asked for an apology she never received," the Trump campaign said in a statement. That is false.
"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," the statement, allegedly penned by Katrina Pierson, continues.
Trump and his campaign were quickly mocked.
