‘It’s not supposed to be about him’: Harris scorches Trump in prebuttal of acceptance speech

Kamala Harris on Thursday issued a devastating rebuke of Donald Trump, hammering the president for his sluggish response to the coronavirus pandemic and spiraling racial unrest — and what she said was a lack of meaningful attention paid to both at the Republican National Convention.

The Democratic vice presidential nominee began her speech by addressing the “pain, hurt and destruction” caused by wildfires raging in California and Colorado and Hurricane Laura in the Gulf of Mexico, and also by this week’s police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wis., which has prompted at-times-violent protests.

Harris spoke emotionally about Blake, who she emphasized was “shot seven times in the back in broad daylight in front of his three young sons.” The California senator painted a contrast between Trump and the Democratic ticket of herself and Joe Biden, expressing support for peaceful protesters and the Blake family, and calling their experience “tragically common in our country.”

Hours earlier, Trump had refused to tell reporters whether he had seen the video of Blake’s shooting. Harris called the video of the episode “sickening.”
