Kamala Harris: Trump is the Most ‘Unpatriotic President’ Ever
2020 Democrat attacks President Trump as 'corrupt' during latest debate
Democratic 2020 hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) lashed out at her presdient during Tuesday night's Democrat Debate, blasting Donald Trump as the "most corrupt and unpatriotic president" in American history.
Without evidence, Harris accused President Trump of corruption, claiming he has “committed crimes in plain sight.”
When asked during CNN-New York Times Democrat debate about the House Democrats’ effort to impeach him over a phone call he had with Ukraine’s president, Harris blasted Trump as a criminal.
“[Trump] has committed crimes in plain sight,” Harris claimed.
“I mean it’s shocking, but he told us who he was. Look, Maya Angelou told us years ago, listen to somebody when they tell you who they are the first time.
"During that election, Donald Trump told us he could shoot somebody on 5th Avenue and get away with it.”
“And he has consistently since he won been selling out the American people, he’s been selling out working people, he’s been selling out our values, he’s been selling out our national security,” Harris said.
“And on this issue with Ukraine, he’s been selling out our democracy.”
“Our framers imagined this moment, a moment where we would have a corrupt president,” Harris continued.
“And our framers then rightly designed our system of democracy to be checks and balances.
"This is one of those moments. And so Congress must act.”
Harris then said Trump is “the most corrupt and unpatriotic president we have ever had.”
Elsewhere during the debate, Harris unsuccessfully tried to win Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) over to her push for Twitter to ban President Trump.
The issue that is quickly becoming a signature of Harris’s presidential bid.
Harris told Warren that she was “surprised” the Massachusetts senator hadn’t backed her call, issued in early October, for Twitter to ban Trump from its site.
In her letter to Twitter, Harris cited Trump’s comments on the Ukraine phone call "whistleblower" and his tweet that used a quote that mentions “civil war” as reasons for Twitter to deplatform the president.
“I would urge you to join me because here we have Donald Trump, who has 65 million Twitter followers and is using that platform as the president of the United States to openly intimidate witnesses, to threaten witnesses, to obstruct justice,” Harris told Warren during the debate.
“And he and his account should be taken down.”
Warren disagreed, saying that she would rather focus on challenging Trump in the presidential election.
“Look, I don’t just want to push Donald Trump off Twitter,” Warren asserted.
“I want to push him out of the White House. That’s our job.”
“So join me in saying that his Twitter account should be shut down,” Harris said as she continued to press Warren to call for Trump to be banned from Twitter.
“No,” Warren replied.
“No?” Harris asked.
