Afrinity Production unveil to you the history made by Kamala Harris on Wednesday when she accepted the Democratic nomination for vice president, while joining Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton to condemn President Donald Trump’s profound “failure” as a leader.
In her vice-presidential acceptance speech on the third night of the Democratic National Convention, Ms. Harris said “there is no vaccine for racism” as she offered her vision for a more inclusive country.
Ms. Harris said she was committed to the values that her mother had taught her and to a “vision of our nation as a beloved community — where all are welcome, no matter what we look like, no matter where we come from or who we love.”
She said she imagined the United States as “a country where we may not agree on every detail, but we are united by the fundamental belief that every human being is of infinite worth” and also as a place “where we look out for one another” and “we rise and fall as one.”
Harris, the first black woman on a major party’s White House ticket, accused Trump of turning “our tragedies into political weapons.” And she urged Americans to vote for Joe Biden, “a president who will bring all of us together.”
“Donald Trump’s failure of leadership has cost lives and livelihoods,” the former California prosecutor charged in her acceptance speech.
“We’re at an inflection point.”
Biden, who faces Trump on November 3, is due to give his own acceptance speech today, closing a Democratic convention held wholly online and on television due to coronavirus safety precautions.
