President Donald Trump applauded Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris' presidential campaign launch, describing it as "the best opening so far" in the 2020 primary race.

Trump made the remarks during an interview with The New York Times published on Thursday night, saying Harris has "a better crowd" , better enthusiasm. "

The president, who spent the laughter of his career in show business before landing at the White House, homed in particular to Harris' ability to draw a crowd, The Times indicated.

The president has frequently pointed to the size of his own campaign rallies as a measure of his likelihood and success.

Trump claimed that some Democratic candidates had "really drifted far left," and took another jab to Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, who launched an exploratory committee in late December.

"I do think Elizabeth Warren's been hurt very badly with the Pocahontas trap," Trump reportedly said, referring to a racist slur he frequently uses to insult her claim or having Native American heritage. "I think she's been hurt badly. I might be wrong, but I think that was a big part of her credibility and now all of a sudden it's gone." Harris declared her candidacy on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, January 21, and followed by a campaign rally in her hometown of Oakland, California, where roughly 20,000 people attended.
