Kamala Harris Formally Launches 2020 Presidential Campaign

Kamala Harris Formally Launches 2020 Presidential Campaign

Oakland: California Senator and Democratic candidate Kamala Harris has formally launched her 2020 presidential campaign Sunday in her birthplace of Oakland, promising to fight for the people.

 Harris, who has been the junior United States Senator for California since 2017, expressed concerns that the American Dream and its democracy are under attack in Donald Trump's United States.

 She said, “We will fight for an America where our daughters, sisters, mothers, and grandmothers are respected where they live and where they work. Where reproductive rights are not just protected by the Constitution but guaranteed in every state”.

Harris, who was California's attorney general from 2011 to 2017, had already announced in a January 21 video that she would run for president.
She joins a Democratic field with several other candidates seeking to keep Trump out of the White House for a second term.

Addressing to at least 20,000 people at Oakland rally, Harris said, “Let’s speak truth: we have foreign powers infecting the White House like malware”.

“People in power are trying to convince us that the villain in our American story is each other. But that is not our story. That is not who we are. That is not our America”, she added.

“These are not ordinary times or an ordinary election. But this is our America. It’s up to every one of us to heal this nation. We can give our children the future they deserve. We can restore America’s moral leadership on this planet. Let’s do it together”, said Harris, whose father is from Jamaica and whose mother a Tamilian.

Coming down heavily on the Trump administration, the Democratic presidential candidate said that Trump regularly tries to equate illegal immigrants with crime and gangs, and his standoff with Democrats in Congress over funding for a wall on the Mexican border led to a record nearly five-week shutdown of parts of the government.
