US Elections 2020: Democratic Vice Presidential Candidate Kamala Harris Says Our Values Are Shared By Majority Of American People
Democratic vice presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris has said her party''s views on issues like healthcare and the coronavirus pandemic are shared by a majority of Americans, flaying President Donald Trump for an "utter failure" of leadership and refusing to condemn white supremacy.
Deflecting President Trump's remarks, who described her as a "female socialist", Ms Harris, 56, said she and former vice president Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential candidate, are proud American patriots.
"Joe Biden and I are proud American patriots. And the reality is that the values that we have, I think, are shared by the majority of the American people," Ms Harris told reporters on Cleveland, where she was campaigning on Saturday.
She was responding to a question on Trump's statement a day earlier.
"We're not going to be a socialist nation. We're not going to have a socialist president, especially a female socialist president. We''re not going to have it. We're not going to put up with it," Trump said at a rally in Pensacola, Florida on Friday.
