WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump took to Twitter Wednesday morning to say that a vice president for the Democratic Party would “do a lot worse” than a woman in the Oval Office.

“When she ran against Hillary Clinton, she was an empty suit, with no hope or dreams. Never saw the glimmer of hope until Bernie got in the race,” the president wrote.

Trump later offered an alternative to the Harris attempt to get the Pennsylvania Democratic Party to back her instead of running as a write-in candidate.

“I am not running for Vice President with Jill Stein. If she wanted a term of 2 years she could run for Senate, but would have to pay back the debts she made. Make of that what you will!” he wrote.

Trump’s comments about wanting a female secretary of state are at odds with recent public support from the Democratic party.

While it remains unclear how she would perform in the West Wing under President Trump, Democratic front-runner Sen. Kamala Harris is aggressively appealing to female voters ahead of this week’s top-tier Democratic party and primary.

With the victory of Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) in the Newark mayor’s race last week, Harris has surged ahead of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in the race for the party’s presidential nomination. And she plans to travel to key states this weekend to build support as well as travel nationally.
