Through a happy text message sent after 4:15 pm through campaign supporters’s phone on August 11 2020, Joe Biden has announced Kamala Harris as his Vice President for the upcoming election. Kamala Harris’s, a California senator, nomination is important as she is the first African-American woman and Asian descent to be nominated for Vice President in US history. Biden’s nomination came after he was advised multiple times to chose a female candidate, specially of color, due to the recent social unrest of equality. Moreover, Biden expressed that he chose Ms Harris as she contributed to helping the working people and protected women and kids from abuse as California’s attorney general. He was proud then as he is now for having her as a partner in this campaign.
Meanwhile, President Trump has expressed his opinion about Biden’s nomination by saying that he was pleased with his choice as Ms Harris did “very, very poorly” in her efforts to become the Democratic presidential nominee. He also added that she was “very, very nasty and horrible” to Mr Biden during the Democratic primary debates which supported his theory that Biden is “an empty shell being filled with the extreme agenda of the radicals on the left.” In opposition, former US President Barack Obama supported Biden’s nominee as he tweeted: “She is more than prepared for the job She’s spent her career defending our Constitution and fighting for folks who need a fair shake.” Likewise the unsuccessful Democratic candidate in 2016, Hillary Clinton, supported Ms Harris as “she’s already proven herself to be an incredible public servant and leader”.
