Kamala Harris ‘might be better than’ Biden, says Trump: ‘I don’t think you can have worse than him’

Former President Donald Trump thinks Vice President Kamala Harris might actually make a better president than her boss, President Joe Biden.

It is unclear if the MAGA King was playing 5D chess when he made the comment to conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on Friday’s “The Hugh Hewitt Show” or if he was simply choosing between two really bad options.

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

“I think so,” Trump replied. “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. I would guess at the starting gate, but certainly, I think so.”

Democrats, Trump said, have no choice but to run Harris if Biden bows out before the 2024 elections, as many predict he will.

“It seems like he’s locked into her for a lot of reasons,” the former president said. “He has to choose her. I understand. 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.”

“Yeah, you’re locked into her,” he continued. “And she might be, I can’t say worse. I think she’d be better than him, actually. I actually think that. I don’t think you can have worse than him.”

It’s not exactly a ringing endorsement, but it’s an argument he’s made before. Speaking with Tucker Carlson in August, Trump said Harris “has some bad moments.”

“Her moments are almost as bad as [Biden’s],” he noted. “I think his are worse, actually. She speaks in rhyme, and it’s weird. ‘The bus will go here, and then the bus will go there because that’s what busses do.’ And it’s weird. The whole is weird.”

But, as Trump made clear at the time, “This is not a President of the United States.”

Asked by Hewitt if he intends “to rule as an authoritarian or a dictator” as so many of his critics claim, Trump replied, “Not at all.”

“No, I’m going to rule as somebody that’s very popular with the people,” he said. “And the reason I have a 50-point or 60-point lead, I saw one today I have a 60-point lead, but the reason is because I had four great years. We had four great years.”

“We had the greatest economy in history,” he reminded Hewitt. “I rebuilt, think of it, I rebuilt the military. I defeated ISIS. They told me ISIS couldn’t be defeated, or it would take four or five years. I did it in a matter of months. I knocked out 100%.”

Concerning immigration, Trump doubled down on his controversial claim that migrants are “poisoning the blood” of America.

“When you look at it, and you look at what’s coming in, we have, from all over the world, not one group, they’re coming in from Asia, from Africa, from South America,” he said. “They’re coming from all over the world. They’re coming from prisons. They’re coming from mental institutions and insane asylums. They’re terrorists. Absolutely, that’s poisoning our country. That’s poisoning the blood of our country. And that’s what’s happening.”
