Kamala Harris: Trump Is 'America’s Greatest National Security Threat'
Presidential candidate ignores other threats like ISIS and China
Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris called d President Donald Trump America's "greatest national security threat" while failing to mention ISIS or China, during Wednesday’s debate.
Harris was asked if she would make concessions to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to keep talks going if she was elected president
But instead of answering the question directly, Harris immediately went after Trump, saying he “got punked” before calling him the number-one threat to America’s security.
“What Donald Trump has done from pulling out of the Paris agreement to pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal, to consistently turning a back on people who have stood with us in difficult times — including most recently the Kurds — points out that Donald Trump is the greatest threat to the national security of our nation at this moment,” Harris said.
The question was crafted around the news that North Korea threatened to cancel all future summits if Trump failed to agree to make concessions on nuclear weapons.
“He has conducted foreign policy since day one born out of a very fragile ego that fails to understand that one of the most important responsibilities as the commander-in-chief is to concern herself with the security of our nation and homeland,” Harris continued.
“And to do it in a way that understands that part of the strength of who we are as a nation, and therefore an extension of our ability to be secure, is not only that we have a vibrant military, but that when we walk in any room around the globe, we are respected because we keep to our word, we are consistent, we speak truth, and we are loyal.”

The moderator then asked Harris the question again.
Harris replied and said she would not make concessions to North Korea at this time.
During last month's Democrat Debate, Harris blasted 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."
