Washington sources reported that Democrat Kamala Harris, the first Indian-American to serve in the US Senate, launched her campaign for the White House on Monday while appearing on ABC’s Good Morning America. Meanwhile in a brief video from her campaign that was released on the social media at the same time she appeared on the show, Harris called on her supporters to join with her to “claim our future”.
Accordingly the 54 year old portrayed herself as a fighter for justice, decency and equality in the video. She said “They’re the values we as Americans cherish, and they’re all on the line now". Reportedly the future of our country depends on you and millions of others lifting our voices to fight for our American values and that’s why I’m running for President of the US. I’m running to lift those voices, to bring our voices together.”
Moreover Harris’ announcement followed the entrance of her fellow senators Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York in the presidential race. Reports added Harris said the time had come to fight against what she called “the injustices of the past two years of the Donald Trump presidency”. She has accused Trump of stoking racist and xenophobic rhetoric, while aligning his administration with white supremacists at home, and cozying up to dictators abroad.
