Kamala Harris warns of ‘irreversible’ damage from Trump, talks about voting

In her first media interview since becoming Joe Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris stressed Friday the importance of voting, vowing to fight suppression efforts. She warned that a second term for President Trump could cause “irreversible” damage to the country.

“This is probably one of the most important elections of our lifetime,” the California senator and presumptive Democratic nominee for vice president told Errin Haines, editor at large of the 19th, a nonpartisan site that promotes participation by women in politics and government. “This is about everything … and whether we’re going to have a president who actually works to lift folks up and give you a sense of pride in your country or somebody who is, full-time, just beating people down.”

Harris spoke with the 19th at the outlet’s virtual summit on Friday afternoon about what she and Biden want to accomplish in the next administration, and what it would mean for the country to have a female vice president for the first time.
