Kamala Harris says she'll decide on 2020 soon, chides Trump on shutdown

"The chatter in the cloak room is that we have hundreds of thousands of Americans who are not going to get paid, and they're not getting paid because the president of the United States has a vanity project that he doesn't want to give up", Harris said.

Harris, 54, has been making the rounds of television talk shows and appearing at several events this week as part of a brief tour to promote her new book, "The Truths We Hold: An American Journey". It has been my life's experience that the American people are smart and they make decisions about what's in the best interest of their household, their family and their community.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday, citing sources, that the California senator could announce her run on MLK Day or after, but, it added, the exact date is still being worked out. Tapper asked. "And what did you learn about it given that it kind of struck close to home?"

Harris, according to recent reports, is already running away from California in one significant respect.

The junior senator applauded rookie congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for her passion. And I think it's good for the party.

"When the conversation shifts, one should be expected to be questioned about those choices", Chatfield said, noting among other issues Harris's advocacy for tougher truancy laws. "And if there's not merit to that, then let's explore new ideas".

"Honestly, my candid response is that she's not the first nor will she be the last elected person to curse in public", Harris said.

"Right now in this country people are being arrested, being prosecuted, and end up spending time in jail or prison all due to their use of a drug that otherwise should be considered legal", she said at that point.

"When we had the 2016 elections, it was at the height of Ferguson and Baltimore, and we still didn't have serious engagement with criminal justice reform", said Phillip Atiba Goff, the president of the Center for Policing Equity, referring to the protests that followed the deaths of black men at the hands of police officers in Missouri and Maryland.

"We've had enough of these powerful voices that are trying to sow hate and division among us", Ms. Harris said. "And we also need to check that".
