Speaking in Iowa, the 2020 Democratic hopeful said:
“I took on successfully and I prosecuted the big banks when they preyed on homeowners. I prosecuted the pharmaceutical companies when they preyed on seniors. I have prosecuted transnational criminal organizations when they preyed on women and children. I know predators, and we have a predator living in the White House.”
Harris said Trump has a “predatory nature and predatory instincts” and that predators “prey on the vulnerable,” according to the Des Moines Register.
“And the thing about predators, you must … most importantly know, predators are cowards,” she added.
Harris has enjoyed a surge in new polls after last week’s debate, in which she took on former Vice President Joe Biden on busing and segregation.
While Biden remains the front-runner, a new Quinnipiac University poll has him at 22% ― down from 30% in the same poll last month ― while Harris jumped from 7% last month to 20% in the newest poll, released this week.
