In addition to her comments about foreign powers, Harris also appeared to condemn Trump over his rhetoric, sayin that "people in power are trying to convince us that the villain in our American story is each other."

"But that is not our story. That is not who we are. That is not our America," Harris said. "The United States of America is not about us versus them ... I'm running to be a president of the people, by the people, for all the people."
 
She also criticized the Trump administration's immigration policies, the president's attacks against the press and the 2017 tax cut, vowing that she would reverse the law as president.
 
CNN notes that Harris, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, has remained cautious in her commentary on the investigations into Russia's election interference and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. 
 
Trump has often referred to the probe as a "witch hunt."
