Democratic presidential candidate, former US vice president Joe Biden has chosen Senator Kamala Harris to take over as his vice president in the November 3 election in which he will face President Donald Trump, who is seeking a second term, while Trump described her as “weak”.
Biden said in a tweet, “I am honored to announce that I have chosen Kamala Harris, a fierce advocate for the weak and one of the best public service workers as my vice president”.
Trump told reporters at the White House that Harris did not impress him in the Democratic primary, in which Biden won, and said he was surprised by this choice “because her performance was poor”.
Trump said that in 2018 during the Senate confirmation hearing to appoint Judge Brett Kavanaugh as a member of the Supreme Court, Harris was “the most mean, outrageous, and contemptuous of the Senate”.
For her part, black Senator Kamala Harris confirmed on Tuesday that the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, is able to “unite” Americans, and that he is honored to run in the presidential elections alongside him, hoping that she will become the first black female vice president in the history of the United States.
“Joe Biden is able to unite the American people because he has spent his life fighting for us,” the senator said in a tweet from California. And when he becomes president, he will make America live up to our aspirations”.
Biden, the Former US Vice President of President Barack Obama, on Tuesday, ended the primary elections among Democrats in Connecticut, winning first place.
These elections come in order to determine the Democratic Party’s candidates to run for the presidential elections to be held on November 3.
Democrats are expected to officially announce their presidential candidate in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, during the week that begins on August 17.
The Republican Party will announce President Donald Trump as a candidate for it at a conference to be held on August 24-27.
It is worth noting that the president who wins the next presidential election will sit on the president’s seat in the White House on January 20, 2021.
