Washington : President Donald Trump was left surprised with Joe Biden's announcement to choose Kamala Harris as his vice-presidential mate for the upcoming Presidential poll in the US.

"She was my number one pick to run with Biden," Trump said at a Tuesday news conference.

Trump attacked Harris for her questioning of Brett Kavanaugh over sexual misconduct allegations during his Senate confirmation hearings to join the Supreme Court.

“I thought she was the meanest, the most horrible, the most disrespectful of anybody in the U.S. Senate,” Trump said.

Kamla Harris, who was born in California, has a Jamaican father and Tamilian mother; she will be first black Indian-American to be nominated on the major US party ticket. Interestingly, she is the fourth woman in history who has been chosen for a major party's presidential ticket.
