The California Democrat, who launched her 2020 campaign for president earlier this year, told The Root in an interview published Tuesday that she doesn't think anyone could reach a different conclusion considering Trump's past statements. 

“When you talk about him calling African countries s-hole countries, when you talk about him referring to immigrants as rapists and murderers, I don’t think you can reach any other conclusion," Harris said.

Trump reportedly said immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African nations came from “shithole countries” during a 2018 Oval Office meeting. He famously referred to Mexican immigrants as "rapists" and drug dealers while announcing his presidential bid in 2015. 

Harris officially launched her 2020 presidential campaign at a rally in Oakland, Calif., last month, where she vowed to "fight for an America where the economy works for all people."

Harris has previously said that America is "absolutely" ready for a woman of color to be president. She also has affirmed her support for reparations for black Americans impacted by slavery. 

Harris, who has repeatedly criticized Trump's policies, isn't the only Democratic presidential contender to condemn him as a racist.
