Democratic woman, Kamala Harris has declared her intention to become President of the United States. The 54-year-old senator from California is part of the growing field of Democrats who want to challenge Republican incumbent Donald Trump next year.
“I’m running for the presidency,” Harris said on Twitter. In a video, she said that the US values of truth, justice, decency, equality, freedom and democracy are at stake.
Harris is the second black American in history to be elected to the US Senate. There, the former prosecutor represents the state of California since 2017.
Harris chose the Martin Luther King Day to announce her application. The national holiday is commemorated in the United States of the black civil rights activist, who was assassinated in 1968.
Prior to Harris, several Democrats had already announced their candidacy for candidacy, including three women: Seniors Kirsten Gillibrand and Elizabeth Warren, and Congressman Tulsi Gabbard.
The candidate of the party is filtered out in nationwide primaries. In the 2016 election, Democrat Hillary Clinton Trump was inferior.
Kamala Devi Harris is an American attorney and politician serving as the junior United States Senator for California since 2017.
A member of the Democratic Party, she previously served as the 32nd Attorney General of California from 2011 to 2017, and as District Attorney of San Francisco from 2004 to 2010.
