‘Oh, Give Me a Break’: Trump Fires Back at Kamala Harris for Saying She’d Prosecute Him as POTUS

President Donald Trump pummeled 2020 Democratic presidential primary candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) after she said she would direct her Department of Justice to prosecute him for obstruction of justice should she win the White House.

As IJR Red previously reported, the California senator said in a podcast interview released Wednesday that she would direct the Justice Department under her administration to prosecute Trump for obstruction of justice charges, saying that they would “have no choice” but to do so if she won the White House.

The same day, during an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, Trump was asked about Harris’ comments.

The president, in response, tore into the 2020 Democratic primary candidate, proclaiming that she said what she did because “she’s running for president” and pointing out that “she’s way down in the polls.”

“Oh, give me a break. She’s running for president,” Trump said. “She’s doing horribly. She’s way down in the polls.”

Trump went on to point out that one of Harris’ 2020 competitors, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) — whom he referred to as “Pocahontas” in the interview — was “really cleaning her clock.”

The 2020 Democratic primary race continues to heat up as the first debate closes in at the end of the month.

IJR Red noted that a new poll released Thursday put Harris in fourth place among likely Democratic primary voters in her home state of California.

Warren, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and former Vice President Joe Biden all placed ahead of her in the poll, with Biden leading the pack at 22 percent.

Last month, Harris announced her plan to close the wage gap between men and women in the U.S., but a report by the Washington Free Beacon showed that women in her Senate office get paid 94 cents for every dollar a man in her office makes.

Pres. Trump you have nothing to worry about from Harris. This California freak has the same chance of being elected to POTUS as Daffy Duck. What a bimbo broad.

Horizontal Harris is more likely to perform a Monica Lewinsky on him.

Does Harris really want a civil war? My interaction with many current Trump supporters is that they are prepared for that potential.

Of course she would ‘have no choice’.
