President Donald Trump gave a thumbs-up to Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., for having the "best opening" of the current crop of Democratic White House contenders.
In an interview with The New York Times, Trump said he admired Harris' first campaign rally last Sunday in Oakland.
"I would say in terms of the opening act, I would say, would be her," he said of the rally, adding: "A better crowd, better crowd, better enthusiasm."
"Some of the others were very flat," Trump told the Times.
Harris' campaign kickoff generated more social media buzz than those of Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., The Hill reported.
In his Times interview, he was especially dismissive of Warren.
"I do think Elizabeth Warren's been hurt very badly with the Pocahontas trap," he added, using the slur he favors in referring to Warren's effort to prove she has Native American heritage. "I think she's been hurt badly. I may be wrong, but I think that was a big part of her credibility, and now all of a sudden it's gone."
