SARAH Palin advised Kamala Harris to "trust no one" after she became the third woman to run on a presidential ticket.

Although the president's campaign labelled her a "phony," Harris, 55, found an unexpected ally in the form of Alaska's former governor.
Palin – who served as the youngest governor of The Frontier State and was the Republican vice presidential nominee for John McCain in 2008 – issued her congratulations to Harris on Instagram.
And she didn't hesitate to give Harris, a Democrat from California, six pieces of frank advice.
"1) Out of the chute trust no one new," Palin wrote. "2) Fight mightily to keep your own team with you – they know you, know your voice, and most importantly are trustworthy."
