Sputnik News, Moscow – US Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Tuesday announced that he has chosen US Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his 2020 running mate.

“I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris— a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate,” Biden tweeted Tuesday.

​”I need someone working alongside me who is smart, tough, and ready to lead. Kamala is that person. I need someone who understands the pain that so many people in our nation are suffering. Whether they’ve lost their job, their business, a loved one to this virus,” Biden said about his choice, Axios reported.

“I need someone who understands that we are in a battle for the soul of this nation. And that if we’re going to get through these crises – we need to come together and unite for a better America. Kamala gets that,” Biden added.

“I first met Kamala through my son Beau. They were both Attorneys General at the same time. He had enormous respect for her and her work. I thought a lot about that as I made this decision. There is no one’s opinion I valued more than Beau’s and I’m proud to have Kamala standing with me on this campaign,” Biden continued.

“I’ve decided that Kamala Harris is the best person to help me take this fight to Donald Trump and Mike Pence and then to lead this nation starting in January 2021,” Biden also said in an email statement, according to Political Wire.

Harris said via Twitter Tuesday that she is “honored” to join Biden as the Democratic party’s nominee for vice president.

​Harris’ husband Douglas Emhoff also showed his support for Biden’s decision on Tuesday with enthusiastic tweets.

US President Donald Trump released a statement Tuesday claiming that Harris getting the vice-presidential nod is “proof that Joe Biden is an empty shell being filled with the extreme agenda of the radicals on the left.”

​​​Trump also stated that Harris has “gleefully embraced the left’s radical manifesto.” The US president also tweeted out a video which refers to Harris as a “phony” and a member of the “radical left.”

​Biden committed to choosing a Black, female running mate as early as March, following nationwide protests against anti-Black racism.

“I commit that I will, in fact, appoint a woman to be vice president,” Biden said at the time, the New York Times reported. “There are a number of women qualified to be president tomorrow.”

Harris dropped out of the 2020 presidential race in December after attempting to become the first Black woman to win a major party’s presidential nomination. Harris, the daughter of immigrants, has been very vocal on racial justice issues, as well as matters like corruption, women’s rights and election interference.

  1. Will Trump unload Pense and put in Niki Hailey, a women of colour, and a darling of israel/aipac, who remembers Haileys interview at aipac couple years ago, where everyone in the audience was nudging, “theirs our next President”.

  2. She is as big of a Zionist sock puppet as Trump is!! I read an article a few years back about her playing host to Netanyahu and those two touring California and deciding what was best for that state!! She slept her way into politics and I hope her being chosen torpedoes Biden`s chance!!!!

  3. all one has to do is to research Kamala Harris’ record as chief prosecutor in the state of Commiefornia and you’ll know where she’s coming from. Her dismal record is there for all to see. her continued war on drugs which meant sending more people to prison and fighting to keep them there, her attacks on people’s essential liberties, not to mention her insane comments.
    How about her affair with a California alderman when she was 25 and he, a married man was 60.
    Harris is transparent as they come, moldable and easily controlled as any sock puppet.
    As for sleepy, creepy Joe…..he’s lost, doesn’t know what city he’s in and probably can’t remember where the bathroom is either.
    I’ve had it with the Democratic party. They like the Republicans have become dinosaurs, relegated to the past and to a museum.
    Neither party will get my vote, as it did last time. Both parties have become corrupt, filled with party hacks, controlled by big tech companies and corporations and neither party cares about individual liberty and freedom…..in fact, just the opposite, especially the Dems who have wrought more damage to liberty than the republicans have. The Dems are socialist in every way.
    Unfortunately, Michigan also has a democrat for a governor, a complete idiot and total moron.
    Sorry Joe, you won’t be getting my vote this year nor any other time. Harris is a fraud and might as well be considered another gold digger.
    And she ain’t black either.

  4. Sputnik also reports that she has spoken at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) lobbying group’s annual convention every year of her senatorship. Harris has been described as “a lifelong supporter of Israel,” has celebrated the Israeli annexation of East Jerusalem and opposes the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, though she also supports a two-state solution.
    There you have it, nothing good comes out of the zio-scum lot.

    • At least she’s not lodged in the derrière of
      Likud.

      “Today’s decision to violate the Iran nuclear deal jeopardizes our national security and isolates us from our closest allies. This nuclear deal is not perfect, but it is certainly the best existing tool we have to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons and avoid a disastrous military conflict in the Middle East. As the international community and the Administration’s own national security team has confirmed multiple times, Iran remains in compliance with the deal. In the absence of an Iranian violation, it is reckless to break this agreement without presenting any plan on how to move forward. Instead of establishing a comprehensive, strategic national security policy, this Administration is far too focused on scoring political points.” (Kamala D. Harris, May 8, 2018)”

    • This is Biden’s campaign generals end run. Supposedly the people will vote for Biden just because he has a black(well sorta) female as his VP. Surprised his group didn’t choose a transgender female.
      And if you don’t vote for the Biden/Harris ticket…..you’re a rayciss!

  5. I know getting rid of Trump is the bottom line, but I watched the democrat debates and Harris was an empty suit. Tulsi Gabbard pummeled her and she was done early, even after pre debate polls touting her as leading.

    • You mean you still believe in Trump’s anti establishment charade and his wanting to drain the swamp ?
      Even Bernie is establishment, but the if and how one tackles the establishment is what matters. The only tackling Trump has done with the establishment is on the golf course. Otherwise the “establishment” runs the show.

      Plus Harris knows a little about “law and order” and not just shouting empty slogans while letting two ambulance chasers collect the money.

    • Edward, you are totally correct. An establishment politician if ever there was one. Her record in Commiefornia speaks for itself.

    • NewtRallyt: yeah…you can find all about her “law and order” stint as prosecutor in Commiefornia.
      A disgusting track record.
      Just like sleepy Joe.

    • John, I paid my taxes to SF, “yes commie SF” for 40 years and know her track record better than most people. The disgusting part of all of this is the fake insaisissable campaign to re-elect a conman. A no vote for Biden is a vote for Trump, no matter what you dress it up with.
