WATCH: Harris criticizes Trump’s foreign policy, handling of Russian intelligence

During Wednesday’s vice presidential debate, Sen. Kamala Harris criticized President Donald Trump for having "betrayed our friends and embraced dictators around the world."

She accused the president of being cozy with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, saying Trump "prefers to take the word of Vladimir Putin over the word of the American intelligence community." In 2018, Trump met with Putin and afterward contradicted U.S. intelligence reports that Russia interfered with the 2016 presidential election.

Pence and Harris faced off in their first and only debate this election on Oct. 7 in Salt Lake City. The debate came amid heightened concerns over the coronavirus following Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis.
