"I believe our country wants and needs some leadership that provides a vision of the country in which everyone could see themselves," Harris said on MNBC's "Morning Joe" when asked why she wants to be president.

Harris slammed the president during the interview over his role in the partial government shutdown, which is nearing the end of its third week. Trump is demanding billions to build his long-promised border wall, which Democrats have rejected, leading to the budget impasse that has resulted in the shutdown.

"The president is holding the American people hostage over this vanity project,:" Harris said. "This is a crisis if his own making."

The senator said that the president, who has floated the idea of declaring a national emergency as a way of bypassing Congress to build the wall, is using "political manipulation" in the fight over the wall and putting national security at risk.

2. Be aware, very aware

What is the mafia-administration doing behind close doors?

The wall and the shutdown are great distractions, something more nefarious is going on behind close doors. That is exactly what has been going on the past two years of this administration, while the decoy (the orange buffoon) makes noise, those working behind the scenes do their evil things...I hope someone is watching very hard, too much noise going on which is meant to distract.
