California Sen. Kamala Harris reintroduced herself to America at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night, taking aim at President Trump as she celebrated her running mate, Joe Biden.
Harris, a former San Francisco district attorney and California attorney general, spoke about her time as a prosecutor and about growing up in the Bay Area as the daughter of immigrants. She also zeroed in on Trump’s character, implying that he is a “predator” in a line she has used on the campaign trail before.
“I’ve fought for children and survivors of sexual assault. I’ve fought against transnational gangs. I took on the biggest banks and helped take down one of the biggest for-profit colleges. I know a predator when I see one,” she said.
Harris also spoke of her friendship with former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, the late son of Joe Biden.
“Joe’s son, Beau, and I served as attorneys general of our states, Delaware and California. During the Great Recession, we spoke on the phone nearly every day, working together to win back billions of dollars for homeowners from the big banks that foreclosed on people’s homes,” Harris said as she formally accepted the Democratic nomination for vice president.
Joe Biden talked about Harris’s relationship with his son earlier this month, calling her an “honorary Biden” shortly after he announced she would be his running mate.
