Democrat Kamala Harris has caused outrage by claiming that voter laws would not work for rural Americans because they cannot photocopy their IDs.

During a new interview with BET, Harris said that it's "almost impossible" for people in rural communities "to prove who they are." 

She tried to support her claim by saying rural communities don't have Kinkos or OfficeMax.

According to Harris, rural citizens, in states that require a photocopy of ID, won't be able to vote by mail because they can't even use a Xerox machine.

"I don't think that we should underestimate what that [compromise on voter ID laws] could mean," Harris insisted. 

"Because in some people's mind, that means you're going to have to Xerox or photocopy your ID to send it in to prove who you are."

"Well, there are a whole lot of people, especially people who live in rural communities, who don't - there's no Kinkos, there's no OfficeMax near them," she added.

"People have to understand that when we’re talking about voter ID laws, be clear about who you have in mind and what would be required of them to prove who they are.

"Of course, people have to prove who they are, but not in a way that makes it almost impossible for them to prove who they are,” she concluded.

WATCH:

Her comments have sparked fury among Twitter users with many of them saying they are able of making photocopies despite living in rural areas.

"Rural American here," Former CIA Ops Officer Brian Dean Wright tweeted.

"We built this country," he added.

"We can manage to photocopy our IDs."

Someone else tweeted: "WHAT!!!!!!!!! Patriots!

"Let's calm down from laughing and help.

"Take your ID, place it on a well-lit solid-colored flat surface, point your phone's camera at it, make sure it's aligned and clear, and snap the picture.

"download & share it with your email! CLASS DISMISSED!"

Someone else said: "Hi, I live on top of a mountain on the WV/VA border and I can photocopy my ID.

"I mean I do it while moonshining White Lightning while dueling banjos play in the background but I can still do it."

Another one added: "I grew up in a rural community without an OfficeMax or a Kinkos and I managed to successfully make photocopies of things on many occasions."

Harris's comments come amid a battle over voter ID laws across the country with some states like Georgia and Texas introducing the measures to prevent voter fraud.

However, Democrats have tried to claim the election integrity measures are "racist."

Meanwhile, Harris has been hit with claims of "internal conflict" with the White House's attempting to shut down the dysfunctional office narrative.

It follows recent reports that some staffers felt they were treated like "s**t."
