President Donald Trump spent Saturday morning firing off frantic tweets. While some tweets make absolutely no sense, he managed to get Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris’ attention after he called her a “failed candidate” and claiming that his policies have done “more than Kamala will EVER be able to do for African Americans!”
“Badly failing presidential candidate @KamalaHarris will not go to a very wonderful largely African American event today because yesterday I received a major award, at the same event, for being able to produce & sign into law major Criminal Justice Reform legislation, which will……greatly help the African American community (and all other communities), and which was unable to get done in past administrations despite a tremendous desire for it,” Trump wrote in a pair of tweets. “This and best unemployment numbers EVER is more than Kamala will EVER be able to do for African Americans!” Trump tweeted.
Harris responded to the President’s tweet by pointing to her own history of work on criminal justice reform and accusing him of falsely claiming to have done so.
“My whole life I’ve fought for justice and for the people — something you’d know nothing about,” she retorted on Twitter. “The only part of criminal justice you can claim credit for is the ‘criminal’ part.”
