Kamala Harris: 'The US Needs a President Who Can Prosecute Trump'
2020 presidential candidate bashes Trump while speaking to supporters
2020 hopeful Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris said that the United States requires a president who knows how to prosecute President Donald Trump, according to reports.
Harris, whose father recently lashed out at her over claims about smoking pot and her Jamaican heritage, cited her former job as state attorney general before going for the President while speaking to supporters in Bettendorf, Iowa.
The 2020 presidential candidate said, “we’re gonna need a fighter, and we’re going to need somebody who knows how to prosecute the case against this president.”
Harris pitched herself as the perfect candidate to beat Trump in 2020 to the audience of around 500.
According to a report from The Hill she also pounced on Trump's recent Tweet regarding 4th Of July celebrations
"I think the President needs to realize it’s America’s birthday, not his birthday,” she said Sunday while at a campaign event in Iowa.
The Democrat was the attorney general of California from 2011 to 2017 before being elected to the Senate, but even that didn't come without some controversy.

Here’s @KamalaHarris’ response to my question in her Iowa press gaggle to @realDonaldTrump’s tweet announcing a parade & fireworks July 4 in DC. She smiled widely, laughed and said, “I think the President needs to realize it’s America’s birthday, not his birthday.” #2020Elections https://t.co/zKgB4Dn0ls— Kyung Lah (@KyungLahCNN) February 24, 2019
Last month, Harris was caught boasting about prosecuting parents including a homeless mom whose kids missed classes in a video from 2010.
In the video, Harris who at the time was attorney general for California, smugly described how being 'tough on truancy' got results when she was the district attorney for San Francisco.
In January, Harris launched her 2020 presidential bid promising to 'lead with integrity' and 'speak the truth' in a speech was used to indirectly c President Donald Trump.
Harris criticized Trump's border wall as 'a medieval vanity project' before slamming the administration's immigration policy.
'When we have children in cages, crying for their mothers and fathers, don't you dare call that border security, that's human rights abuse,' Harris said.
Although didn't Trump by name, it was obvious who she was referring to.
