Biden to Harris: 'Go easy on me kid'

Biden to Harris: 'Go easy on me kid' Former Vice President Joe Biden greeted his fellow presidential contender Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) at the Democratic debates on Wednesday by telling her to "go easy" on him. "Go easy on me kid," Biden said jokingly as he and Harris shook hands on stage. The rematch comes over a month after Harris confronted Biden over his civil rights record as a senator, specifically on busing. The episode resulted in a boost for Harris in the polls and fundraising, catapulting her into the top tier of the crowded Democratic primary.

Harris says Trump "seems to derive some element of joy in inciting people." Harris and presidential rivals Joe Biden and Steve Bullock have stopped short of labeling Trump a white supremacist, while others, including Beto O'Rourke and Pete Buttigieg, have said the term applies.

FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris said Friday that President Donald Trump "seems to derive joy" from provoking some Americans to hateful speech and actions, and she says that goes to issues deeper than whether the president is a white supremacist.

"I've not said this out loud, but I think it and I feel it," Harris told The Associated Press during an interview traveling across Iowa. "He seems to derive joy from the response he gets when he talks this way. It seems he derives some element of joy in inciting people around, around outrageous and hateful rhetoric."

Trump Issues Forceful Condemnation of El Paso Shooting: ‘Act of Cowardice’

Trump Issues Forceful Condemnation of El Paso Shooting: ‘Act of Cowardice’ President Donald Trump strongly condemned the shooting in El Paso, Texas that left 20 people dead and over two dozen people injured, saying it was an “act of cowardice.” Today’s shooting in El Paso, Texas was not only tragic, it was an act of cowardice.

Trump's recent series of racist remarks toward women of color in Congress, as well as the ties between his anti-immigrant rhetoric and the deadly mass shooting in El Paso, have sparked a debate in the 2020 Democratic field over whether the president is a white supremacist.

Harris, like former Vice President Joe Biden and Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, has stopped short of using the label. Meanwhile, former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg have said it applies.

Kaine spoke Spanish numerous times and also falsely stated that Woodrow Wilson was married to a woman named “Eleanor,” clearly mixing Wilson up with Franklin Roosevelt. Kaine also cited Republican establishment figures Barbara Bush and John Kasich to attack Trump .

"It literally oversimplifies the issue, because it's almost that the conversation begins and ends with that," Harris said on her tour bus traveling across rural northwest Iowa. "The lens through which I think about it is so much broader than a label."

Harris cited Trump's 2017 ban on travelers from six largely Muslim countries, his 2018 order banning transgender individuals from serving in the armed forces except under limited circumstances, and his constant degradation of immigrants entering the U.S. from the Southern border. She said they are part of a pattern Trump has followed to feed his own psyche instead of encouraging acceptance at a time of increased hate crimes.

By ascribing personal motives to Trump's rhetoric, Harris' comments go further than most candidates, who have not shied from connecting Trump's rhetoric and the El Paso shooting Saturday, when 22 people were killed by a man who admitted to police he had targeted Mexicans.

"Democrats have spent every moment trying to overturn the election of 2016," Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh said. "So now they've moved on to calling (Trump) and his supporters racist. Those are the real divisive tactics."
