Possible 2020 Presidential Candidate Calls for Marijuana Legalization in New Book

Possible 2020 Presidential Candidate Calls for Marijuana Legalization in New Book

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". If Trump declares a national emergency, she added, "the courts will kick in" to "determine the legitimacy of his exercise of that authority, and I think what we all know is it would be an improper exercise of authority". And Nikki Haley, the former USA ambassador to the United States, could become the next Indian American to run for the top job, after Harris. "They are smarter than that". However, one of Harris' reps told The Hill on Thursday that no announcement is imminent and she will not be in Oakland during the holiday weekend. Tapper asked. "And what did you learn about it given that it kind of struck close to home?"

Rumor has it there will be an announcement soon, however.

Local California station KCBS Radio fueled speculation that Harris would announce a bid later this month, in a report based on anonymous sources. Harris, who represents California in the Senate, is the daughter of Indian and Jamaican immigrants.

The junior senator applauded rookie congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for her passion. She has a real chance, and I'll be rooting for her. And I think it's good for the party. "That's what's happening", Harris said. "Let's look at the bold ideas, and I'm eager that we have those discussions".


During her MSNBC appearance Friday, she said the president's opponent should concentrate on communicating with voters, rather than engaging with Trump on every controversial statement he makes.

Berkeley, where Harris was raised before her parents divorced and she moved with her mother and sister to Montreal, Canada, has also been dismissed by her strategists as not projecting the image they're looking for.

"Emma Lazarus's words, 'Give me your exhausted, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, ' speaks to the true character of what our country can be: a generous country that respects and embraces those who have made the hard journey to our shores, often fleeing harm", Harris wrote. I also do believe that in the passion, what we also do have to check, as a separate matter, is that there are also very ... powerful voices in our country that are sowing hate and division among us.
