Kamala Harris set to announce 2020 presidential campaign

Sen. Kamala Harris D-California in Hart Senate Office Building

"The irony here is that this president is talking about a wall because this is going to keep out so-called terrorists - which we know is not true - in the interest of public safety when each day he's choking the actual people who are responsible for public safety", Harris said.

Over the past weeks, Harris been making the media rounds, promoting her new book, "The Truths We Hold: An American Journey".

Harris, who responded by hinting that her office was too big to notice, did not apologize for her lack of leadership over what happened as she appeared to suggest that she was a victim of the whole ordeal, saying it was a "very painful experience" for her. Although she still hasn't officially tossed her hat into the ring, on Thursday she teased The Late Show host Stephen Colbert over a possible 2020 run.

In an interview with ABC, Ms. Harris said she has yet to decide if she will run in 2020, but was definitely certain on one point that the U.S.is absolutely ready for a woman of colour to be president.

"We need to give the American public more credit", the Democratic senator said. "That's what's happening", Harris said.

Harris would be the fourth person so far to join the race for the Democratic nomination, though that number is expected to balloon to dozens of candidates by the time campaign season kicks into full swing.

Berkeley, where Harris was raised before her parents divorced and she moved with her mother and sister to Montreal, Canada, has also been dismissed by her strategists as not projecting the image they're looking for.

The Senator from California is now on her book tour.

A book tour and a flurry of TV appearances enable the California senator to launch a campaign on her own terms.

Harris stands to make history when she does announce her run - as the both the first African American woman and the first Indian American woman to run for the White House.

"He ran as the law-and-order president", Elleithee said of Trump. And those are the issues I think about.
