Trump Campaign Struggles Early in Attacking Kamala Harris

Now that presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has selected Kamala Harris as his running mate, the Trump campaign has wasted little time probing for an attack angle, but the California senator has proven to be a shifty target in the early going.

The president’s handlers have already gone after Harris’ record during her time as San Francisco’s district attorney and California attorney general, when the state had a tough-on-crime stance that disproportionately imprisoned Black men.

Yet Trump senior adviser Katrina Pierson also ripped Harris as someone who will sympathize with “anti-police extremists,” NBC News reported.

“She’s a phony. She was going after the wrong people,” Pierson told reporters. “When you’re not going after gang members but you’re going after citizens, for example, Black men and marijuana, something that she herself admitted to doing, it’s really a double standard she’s trying to keep.”

Harris, who ended her own once-promising White House in December amid dwindling campaign funds, is the first African American and the first Asian American to be chosen as the running mate of a major party’s presidential ticket.
