Donald Trump tore apart Kamala Harris and other Democrats on Thursday, claiming the alleged vice presidential candidate was a ‘mad woman’ and claiming her party wanted to get rid of ‘all kinds of animals’ and demolish the famous Empire New York State Building.
The president, behind Joe Biden in national polls and in most major swing states, claimed in an interview with Fox Business that Democrats wanted to demolish the iconic building and replace it with a new one without a window. He also said the party’s “Green New Deal” called for “no cows,” before asserting that all Democrats want to abolish all animals.
He also repeated his claim that before the coronavirus outbreak the economy was so strong that George Washington, the country’s first president, was unable to defeat it. The president called Mr Biden and Ms Harris “big taxpayers,” saying they were proposing what amounts to a $ 4 billion tax hike.
