Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden came to the defense of his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, after President Trump referenced her "nasty" behavior towards then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Following Biden's selection of Harris on Tuesday, Trump referenced her hostility towards Kavanaugh, also pointing out she was "nasty" to Biden himself during the Democratic primary contest.

"She was very disrespectful to Joe Biden, and it's hard to pick somebody that's that disrespectful," Trump said during a press briefing. "She said things during the debates, during the Democrat primary debates, that were horrible about Sleepy Joe, and I would think that he wouldn't have picked."

Coming to Harris's defense, Biden suggested the president had a problem with strong women.

"Donald Trump has already started his attacks, calling Kamala 'nasty,' whining about how she's 'mean' to his appointees," Biden said at a campaign event to introduce Harris as his running mate. "It's no surprise because whining is what Donald Trump does best, better than any president in American history. Is anyone surprised Donald Trump has a problem with a strong woman or strong women across the board?"

Biden and Harris appeared together for their first joint campaign event in Delaware on Wednesday.
