If Democratic Presidential nominee wins the November 3 US Elections, his running mate will takeover as president in a month's time, President said on Thursday in a blistering attack on his poll rivals.

Vice President Mike Pence, 61, and Harris, 55, came face-to-face in the vice presidential debate on Wednesday, which saw sparring over Trump's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, jobs, China, racial tensions and climate change. Trump and Biden have separately lauded their deputies.

"I thought that wasn't even a contest last night. She was terrible. I don't think you could get worse. And totally unlikable. She's a Communist. She's left of (Senator) Bernie (Sanders). She's rated left of Bernie by everybody. She's a Communist, Trump told Fox News in an interview on Thursday.

We're going to have a Communist. Look, I sit next to Joe and I looked at Joe. Joe's not lasting two months as president. That's my opinion. He's not going to be lasting two months, Trump said, in his first interview after the vice presidential debate.

The interview, also the first after returning from a military hospital where he was treated for COVID-19, was over phone and lasted nearly an hour.

"She is a Communist. She's not a Socialist. She's well beyond a socialist. Take a look at her views. She wants to open up the borders to allow killers and murderers and rapists to pour into our country," Trump said in his sharpest attack against Harris.

Later in a tweet, Trump said if a Republican lied like Biden and Harris do, the "Lame stream media would be calling them out at a level never recorded before."

"For one year they called for no fracking and big tax increases. Now they each say opposite. Fake news is working overtime!" Trump tweeted.

Addressing a rally in Nevada, a day after the debate, Pence described it as a match-up of two different visions.

"Let me be clear, last night's vice presidential debate was not just a debate between two candidates, I think it was a debate between two visions, he said.

"and want higher taxes, open borders, they want to defund the police, and if you couldn't work it out last night they want to pack the Supreme Court," he claimed.

"A lot of talk this morning on TV about who won the debate. I think when you compare the Biden-Harris agenda with what has done and will continue to do for the country... won the debate hands down, Pence said.
