Donald Trump's critical words come after Harris was chosen as Joe Biden's Vice Presidential pick for the upcoming November election.

The President tweeted early Wednesday morning: "[email protected] started strong in the Democrat Primaries, and finished weak, ultimately fleeing the race with almost zero support.
"That’s the kind of opponent everyone dreams of!"
Trump's tweet followed Biden's Tuesday afternoon announcement via Twitter – making Harris the first black woman and Asian-American on a major presidential ticket.
"I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate," Biden wrote.
"Back when Kamala was Attorney General, she worked closely with Beau," Biden continued in a second tweet.
"I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse. I was proud then, and I'm proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign."
The announcement comes even after Biden and Harris clashed over racial issues during one of the Democratic presidential debates last year.
Harris endorsed Biden in March and this August he told reporters that he had moved on from the tension at the debate, saying "I don't hold grudges."
However, Trump's GOP campaign also gave their two cents on Biden's decision on Tuesday.
They said his VP selection was proof Biden's "an empty shell being filled with the extreme agenda of the radicals on the left" in a scathing statement.
"Biden is no moderate, and with Harris as his ‘political living will,’ he is surrendering control of our nation to the radical mob with promises to raise taxes, cut police funding, kill energy jobs, open our borders, and appease socialist dictators," wrote Katrina Pierson, a Trump 2020 senior advisor.
"At the ballot box, Americans will resoundingly reject the abysmal failures of Biden-Harris in favor of the America First strength of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence."
As the US presidential election looms, Trump's campaign aides also created a video lambasting Harris called "Phony."
Meanwhile, Trump himself confessed that he was "surprised" Biden picked Harris, claiming she's "told many many stories that weren't true," and adding, "she's very big into raising taxes."
Trump cited Harris' stance against fracking and petroleum products and her support of socialized medicine.
"I can't tell you what she's voting for, I think she doesn't know what," Trump told reporters during his Tuesday press briefing. "I think Joe knows even less than she does."
"She was very, very nasty to – one of the reasons it [the appointment] surprised me, she was very – she was probably nastier than even Pocahontas to Joe Biden," he told reporters.
Harris, 55, was a presidential candidate last year, the former district attorney of San Francisco and is a current Senator for California.
Harris has been married to her husband Douglas Emhoff, a lawyer, for the past six years and has two step-children, Ella and Cole.
According to CNN, the presidential and vice presidential candidates will appear together on Wednesday at an event in Wilmington, Delaware.
