President Trump blasted Sen. Kamala Harris as a “gaffe machine” as he live-tweeted during the vice presidential debate Wednesday night.
The president had stayed largely quiet during the first hour of the the face off, tweeting videos that apparently fact checked Democratic the candidate.
Soon before 10 p.m. he then weighed in, offering his support for Vice President Mike Pence while trashing Harris.
“Mike Pence is doing GREAT! She is a gaffe machine,” he wrote.
Pence and Harris had been sparring over a number of issues, including the Trump administration’s coronavirus pandemic response, taxes and US foreign policy.
In one sharp exchange, Pence blasted Harris for what he said was undermining credibility in a coronavirus vaccine that could potentially be developed before the end of the year.
“That fact that you continue to undermine public confidence in a vaccine, if a vaccine emerges during the Trump administration, I think is unconscionable,” he said.
