Washington, August 17
Indian-American Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris has stated that President Donald Trump and his marketing campaign will “engage in lies” and “dirty tactics” to distract from the true points which are impacting the American individuals.
She was responding to President Trump’s promotion of the conspiracy theories about her eligibility to function the vp and president.
On Saturday, Trump stated that he wouldn’t be “pursuing” questions on Harris’ eligibility, however didn’t dismiss the conspiracy theories as false.
Trump on Thursday stated he heard on “social media” that Harris may very well be ineligible.
“I heard today that she doesn’t meet the requirements,” Trump stated, referring to John Eastman, the lawyer and Chapman University professor who raised the problem in a Newsweek op-ed, as “very highly qualified.”
Responding to Trump’s remarks, Harris, 55, informed the American information web site TheGrio on Sunday that the president and his marketing campaign will interact in deception.
“They’re going to engage in lies. They’re going to engage in deception. They’re going to engage in an attempt to distract from the real issues that are impacting the American people. And I expect that they will engage in dirty tactics. And this is going to be a knockdown, drag-out. And we’re ready,” she stated.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden scripted historical past on Wednesday by choosing Harris, an Indian-American and an African-American, as his working mate within the election on November 3.
Born to a Jamaican father and an Indian mom, California Senator Harris, if elected, could be the primary lady vp ever for the nation.
“What’s at stake right now is that we’ve had over 160,000 people die in the last few months and many of them needlessly … tens of millions of people who have lost their jobs … we’re in the midst of a hunger crisis in our country. The media isn’t covering it so much,” she stated.
“I’m prepared to fight because this is a fight that is for something, not against something. This is a fight for where we need to be … We need to focus on what can be unburdened by what has been,” Harris stated.
Harris is not any stranger to accusations about her race. During the Democratic presidential major, Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., retweeted then deleted a critic who stated, “Kamala Harris is not an American Black. She is half Indian and half Jamaica.”
Harris’ marketing campaign slammed the assaults on the time, saying the identical techniques had been used in opposition to Obama.
“It didn’t work then and it won’t work now,” Harris’ marketing campaign communications director informed CNN in June 2019.
Harris informed TheGrio that she needs Black communities to be hyper-aware of makes an attempt to suppress their votes.
“You may not fall in love with who you’re voting for. We have to be heard and not let them stop us or prevent us or deter us from exercising our voices and making sure our voice is strong in this election,” she stated.
“Nothing that we have ever achieved that has been about progress has come without a fight,” she added. — PTI
