Senator Kamala Harris is running for president in the 2020 election. Among the 2020 democrats, she's hoping to beat Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Kirsten Gillibrand. In this Kamala Harris 2020 speech, the senator decries the Trump administration and gives her vision for America.

SEN. KAMALA HARRIS: 'This is not our America

When we have leaders who lie, and bully, and attack a free press, and undermine our democratic institutions that’s not our America.

When white supremacists march and murder in Charlottesville or massacre innocent worshipers at a Pittsburgh synagogue that’s not our America.

When we have children in cages crying for their mothers and fathers, don't you dare call it border security, that’s a human rights abuse, and that’s not our America.

When we have leaders who attack public schools and vilify public school teachers that’s not our America.

When bankers who crashed our economy get bonuses, but workers who brought our country back can't even get a raise that’s not our America.

And when American families are barely living paycheck to paycheck, what is this administration’s response?

Their response is to try to take away health care from millions of families.

Their response is to give away a trillion dollars to the biggest corporations in this country.

And their response is to blame immigrants as the source of all our problems.

And guys, let’s understand what is happening here: People in power are trying to convince us that the villain in our American story is each other.

But that is not our story. That is not who we are. That’s not our America.

Let’s remember, when women fought for suffrage, those in power said they were dividing the sexes and disturbing the peace.

Let’s remember, when abolitionists spoke out and civil rights workers marched, their oppressors said they were dividing the races and violating the word of God.

But Frederick Douglass said it best, and Harriet Tubman and Dr. King knew,

to love the religion of Jesus is to hate the religion of the slave master.

When we have true unity, no one will be subjugated for others. It’s about fighting for a country with equal treatment, collective purpose, and freedom for all.

That’s who we are.'
