Milwaukee Journal SentinelKamala Harris in virtual Milwaukee event charges Trump with botched response to pandemic

Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris celebrated her 56th birthday on the virtual campaign trail Tuesday, urging Milwaukee voters to get to the polls as early in-person balloting began in Wisconsin.

“Wisconsin, you’re the key,” she said. “Milwaukee, we need you.”

The U.S. Senator from California wasted little time in harshly criticizing President Donald Trump and his administration over their policies on the coronavirus pandemic.


On COVID-19, Harris charged that Trump and his administration “knew what was going on. They knew it could hurt people. They’ve had the information since January. They covered it up. They gave people no indication of how serious it was. They didn’t give families enough time to make decisions on how they would live their lives, how they would protect their families.”

She said Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has a plan to contain COVID. “The thing about Joe is he has a deep understanding of how our government works,” she said. “He has an understanding of what it means to manage a crisis. He dealt with these crises in the past, whether it be the Great Recession when he pushed through the recovery act, or what he did to work on containing Ebola.”

“We vote to honor the ancestors, which includes folks like the great, late John Lewis. We vote to honor the ancestors, like those suffragettes 100 years ago this year, who passed and helped pass the 19th Amendment. We vote because we know what’s at stake from health care to the economy,” said Senator Kamala Harris

“Wisconsin you are the key. Milwaukee we need you…It is more than fair to say Donald Trump has exhibited a reckless disregard for human life, and there’s no denying that,” said Senator Kamala Harris
