NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- It didn't take long for President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to chime in about Joe Biden's decision to name Senator Kamala Harris his running mate -- and not surprisingly, they didn't exactly shower her with praise.

"She is a person that's told many, many stories that aren't true," Trump said at his briefing Tuesday. "I think Joe knows even less than she does."

Trump said Harris was "nasty" and "disrespectful" to Biden during the primary.

“I was a little surprised that he picked her ... she did very, very poorly in the primaries.”

Trump said Harris was "nasty" during Justice Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court hearing: “I won’t forget that soon."

Shortly after Biden announced Harris was his running mate, Trump tweeted out a video Tuesday attacking the Biden-Harris ticket, labeling the Senator as "phony."

As for Pence, while at a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for Trump even in Mesa, Arizona, he told attendees, "I don't know if you all heard the news, but on the way here I heard Joe Biden just named his running mate -- California Senator Kamala Harris . So let me take this opportunity to welcome her to the race." 

According to a pool report, there were "lots of boos in the room."

Pence continued, "As you all know, Joe Biden and the Democratic Party have been overtaken by the radical left. So given their promises of higher taxes, open borders, socialized medicine, and abortion on demand, it's no surprise that he chose Senator Harris."
