In yet another scathing attack, US President Donald Trump has claimed that he has "more Indians" than Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's running mate Kamala Harris, who is of Indian and Jamaican heritage.
He made the remarks on Friday while addressing the New York City law enforcement union, the Police Benevolent Association (PBA), that has endorsed the President in the race for the White House.
"(If) Sleepy Joe Biden were to become President, he would immediately pass legislation to gut every single police department in America... And probably she's a step worse, Kamala.
"She is of Indian heritage. Remember I said I have more Indians than her... I have more than she does," he added.

Referring to Massachusetts' Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, Trump said: "I was sort of hoping he (Biden) was going to pick Pocahontas... She's another beauty."
"We got names for all of them. What's better Sleepy Joe or Slow Joe?" the President asked, having his crowd cheer louder for the nickname they preferred, reports Fox News.
In his address, Trump also attacked New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, also a Democrat, and said he "has launched a crusade against the police."
The President described how he watched a protester dump a bucket of water on two police officers and said, "I wish they fought back."
Trump's latest attack on Harris came a day after he said that that the California Senator "doesn't qualify" to serve as US Vice President, while amplifying the fringe legal 'birther' theory that critics decry as racist.
"I just heard it today that she doesn't meet the requirements and by the way the lawyer that wrote that piece is a very highly qualified, very talented lawyer.
"I have no idea if that's right. I would have assumed the Democrats would have checked that out before she gets chosen to run for Vice President.
"But that's a very serious... you're saying that, they're saying that she doesn't qualify because she wasn't born in this country," he was quoted as saying in a BBC report.

Since Representative Justin Amash announced he was forming an exploratory committee to pursue the Libertarian nomination for president, there has been plenty of chatter about such a move harming Joe Biden’s chances of defeating President Trump in November. If Amash indeed gets on the ballot in a handful of swing states, he very well could siphon off some voters who otherwise would have opted for Biden. But what’s more certain at this point is that Amash’s decision hurts the former vice president in a different way.
Biden opened the event saying that as long as Donald Trump is president, the security and future of the United States is at risk. With fewer than 100 days before Nevada Democratic party caucuses, Biden is among the front-runners in crowded field of Democratic candidates for president.
Donald Trump’s odds of winning the US election are sliding at the rate of a horse found lame in the run up to the Kentucky Derby.
The witness added the suspect disappeared after being injured and after having bleeding in the head, and then he was seen heading towards the victim with a knife.
Abu Ghazeen noted that those vehicles give a grace period for the public to park in the public parking for a period of 10 minutes without paying fees.
"This technology has proven its effectiveness to identify suspicious and wanted people," said Obaid Al Hathboor, director of Dubai's Transport Security Department.
The suspect offered Dhs50,000, a Rolex watch, a monthly salary of Dhs20,000, and a Mercedes car as a bribe to a policeman so that he could escape from the police station where he was held on charges related to drug trafficking.
