The Trump 2020 campaign has dismissed Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as Joe Biden’s “living will.” On Tuesday, senior adviser Katrina Pierson claimed Harris a “phony” who has abandoned her own morals in order to appeal to leftist party values.
She went on to say with “Harris as his political living will, taxes will increase, police funding will be cut, and borders will be open.”

Meanwhile, the presumptive Democrat nominee and his new running mate are set to make their first public appearance as a presidential ticket this week. According to the former vice president’s campaign, Biden and Harris will deliver remarks on Wednesday from his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware.
The two will also take part in a virtual fundraiser on the same evening. This came after Biden announced the senator as his running mate on Tuesday.
Back when Kamala was Attorney General, she worked closely with Beau. I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse. I was proud then, and I’m proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign.
