He may not know how to pronounce her name, but President Trump is able to appreciate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and her ability to draw a crowd.

During an interview Thursday with The New York Times, Trump discussed the Democrats who have announced they are running for president in 2020, saying they have "really drifted far left." He was quick to say something nice about Harris, though, even if he did incorrectly pronounce her name as "Kameela." She has had "the best opening so far," Trump said. "I would say in terms of the opening act, I would say, would be her. A better crowd, better crowd, better enthusiasm."
