Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Officially launched its run for the nomination of Democratic presidential candidates with a comprehensive embrace of major government programs, including Medicare for All and general pre-school education – and several shots of President Trump's policy.
"I'm running to fight for an America where the economy works for working people," Harris told a jubilant crowd outside the town hall in their hometown of Oakland. "… I run, once and for all, to declare that health care is a fundamental right, and to achieve that right with Medicare for All." Explaining education is a fundamental right, and we will use universal pre- Warranted K and Debt Free College. "
Harris proposed the planned boundary wall of President Trump as a" medieval vanity project "and criticized the government for its rejection of immigration policy.
"If we have children in cages crying for their mothers and fathers, do not you dare to call that border security, that's human rights abuses," Harris said.
Harris also stated that the government's administration would lift tax cuts, which she described as "giving away to the top corporations and the top one percent," "for what she promised to pay would be the largest labor and tax." One generation of mid-range tax cuts, up to $ 500 a month, help America's families make ends meet. "
Harris dismissed the United States as a" turning point "in its history, claiming:" The American dream and our American democracy are under attack and stand on a line like never before. "

"We are at this point in time because we need to answer a basic question," Harris said. Who are we? Who are we as Americans? So, let's answer this question here and now to the world and each other. "
" America, we are better than that. "
" People in power try to convince us that the villain in our American history influenced each other, "she added. But that is not our story. We are not. This is not our America. You see, in our United States of America, it's not about us. It's about "we, the people".
Harris, the daughter of immigrants from Jamaica and India, began her political career in 2003 when she was elected to the San Francisco district attorney. Seven years later she was elected Attorney General of California elected to the Senate in 201
"My whole life I had only one client: the people," said Harris in the echo of her motto "For the people". She also defended her record as a prosecutor

"For the people" meant fighting for a fairer criminal justice system. At a time when prevention and salvation were not in the vocabulary or mindset of most district attorneys, we launched an initiative to give young people arrested for drug detention time and education instead of jail, "Harris said who added the American criminal justice system "needs massive reforms."
"It is fitting that Harris chose the most liberal district in deep blue California for his campaign," said Republican National Committee spokesman Michael Ahrens in response to their remarks Weaker limits and higher taxes may be popular there, but their liberal policies are completely out of whack with most Americans, and President Trump has led this country to reach economic highs and strengthen our national security, so it will be in 2020 re-elected. "
