President is apparently watching the vice presidential debate and thinks is doing GREAT, but he's not so hot about the Democratic nominee or the moderator's performance.

Trump, who is quarantining at the White House as he convalesces from COVID-19, took to Twitter to praise Pence and slam the Democratic vice presidential nominee less than an hour into Wednesday's debate in Salt Lake City.

is doing GREAT! She is a gaffe machine, Trump chimed in on Twitter.

A few minutes later, he huffed that the moderator, USA Today Washington bureau chief Susan Page, cut Pence off as he was trying to make a point about Harris questioning a judicial nominee about his membership in the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic social organisation.

The president offered a link to a National Review article critical of Harris' questioning to highlight the point he said Pence was trying to make.
