Kamala Harris hits Trump on ‘foul language,’ failure to call out ‘domestic terrorism’

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), a 2020 presidential hopeful, criticized President Trump during an appearance in Detroit on Sunday, saying he is “trying to make America hate” with his rhetoric.

Speaking at the NAACP Freedom Fund dinner Sunday night, Harris hit Trump over past comments, saying the country needs “a leader who speaks out against hate.”

“It’s time we had a leader who speaks out against hate in all its forms,” she wrote in her Twitter post.


“Let’s speak truth here today,” Harris continued. “This president isn’t trying to make America great; he’s trying to make America hate. So it is critical to our security, our dignity and our unity as a nation when I say: We need a new president.”

Trump and Harris have traded blows recently, with Trump last week calling the presidential contender “nasty,” after her grilling of Attorney General William Barr in a hearing about Barr’s handling of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

Harris fired back.

“Trump’s primary interest has been to obstruct justice. My primary interest is to pursue justice,” Harris said last week in response to Trump’s attack. “You can call that whatever name you want, but I think that’s what the American people want in a leader.”
