Kamala Harris Rips Into Trump: 'We Have A Predator Living In The White House'

The California senator and 2020 presidential candidate says the president has a "predatory nature and predatory instincts."

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) says President Donald Trump is a predator ― and that, as an ex-prosecutor, she’s the candidate to take him down in next year’s election.

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.
