Kamala Harris Lays Out Trump's 'Rap Sheet' in Fiery Speech



The former state attorney general, current senator from California and Democratic candidate for president Kamala Harris has proven her prosecutorial chops to a more national audience from the perch on the dais during senate hearings. She’s had viral moments using studious and precise questions while attempting to hold both then-SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Attorney General William Barr accountable. On Saturday, Harris reversed her more methodical approach and came out swinging, going directly after President Donald Trump in a fiery speech at the South Carolina Democratic Convention.

“We have in this White House a president who says he wants to make America great again. Well, what does that mean? Does that mean he wants to take us back to before schools were integrated? Does that mean he wants to take us back to before the Voting Rights Act was enacted? Does that mean he wants to take us back before the Civil Rights Act was enacted? Does he mean he wants to take us back before Roe v. Wade was enacted? Because we’re not going back. We’re not going back,” Harris said forcefully.

Harris then seem to subtly pivot to the latest sexual assault accusations directed at Trump without mentioning it directly. “I also had a career as a prosecutor. So, let me tell you a little bit about that. I know how to take on predators,” she said. Harris talked about successes she’s had prosecuting big banks, for-profit colleges, oil companies and “transnational criminal organizations who are preying on women and children.” Harris continued, “I know how to get that job done and I did it for the people.”

The candidate then made the case that a prosecutor should be the one to take on Trump in the general election. “So let me tell you, we need somebody on our stage when it comes time for that general election who knows how to recognize a rap sheet when they see it and prosecute the case.” Harris said.
