“I know that winning this race will be a tougher challenge than any I’ve faced in my lifetime, but make no mistake: I’m not afraid of Donald Trump,” Kamala Harris said in a fundraising email sent to Biden supporters.
“I’ve been standing up to Trump and people like him for my entire career. He doesn’t scare me. He’s a serial predator. I’ve spent my career putting them away,” she added.
Today Kamala Harris made her first big appearance with Biden where she ripped Trump and Pence and said, “We need more than a victory on November 3rd. We need a mandate that proves that the past few years do not represent who we are or who we aspire to be”
From Fox News:
The allegations largely started after the release of the “Access Hollywood” video in which the president infamously said of touching women: “I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”
Harris has used the word “predator” before, during a campaign event in Iowa in July 2019, prior to her dropping from the presidential race.
“I took on successfully, and I prosecuted the big banks, when they preyed on homeowners,” Harris told a crowd of supporters in reference to her record as Attorney General of California. “I’ve prosecuted the pharmaceutical companies when they preyed on seniors. I have prosecuted transnational criminal organizations when they preyed on women and children.
“I know predators, and we have one living in the White House.”
The Trump campaign released an attack ad on Biden’s vice presidential pick minutes after the announcement was made Tuesday.
The video concludes with nicknames for the candidates which Trump will likely use on the campaign trail, saying, “Slow Joe and Phony Kamala. Perfect together. Wrong for America.”
Trump wasted no time in ramping up his rhetoric against Harris, referring to her as “nasty,” a term he repeatedly used to describe Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential race.
“I’ve been watching her for a long time. I was a little surprised,” Trump said Tuesday during a press briefing at the White House. “She was extraordinarily nasty to Judge Kavanaugh.
“She was nasty to a level that was just a horrible thing, the way she treated now-Justice Kavanaugh, and I won’t forget that soon,” Trump said.
“She was very, very nasty. She was probably nastier than even Pocahontas to Joe Biden,” Trump added, referring to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who endorsed Biden and has already voiced her support for Harris as vice president.
