Harris, Klobuchar Hone in on Trump in Iowa Speeches
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (CN) – Iowa Democrats got a full serving of picnic fare and political rhetoric from presidential candidates Kamala Harris of California and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota in a Democratic Party gathering at a West Des Moines city park Wednesday.
Both Harris and Klobuchar, who took turns addressing the crowd on the eve of the Fourth of July holiday, made the obligatory references to the nation’s founders and recited their respective campaign messages. But they saved their most passionate lines for President Donald Trump.
Harris: “The current occupant of the White House … betrayed the people” on trade, on health care, and on immigration, with “babies in cages at our border and children separated from their parents. That is not reflective of our values and ideals.”
Klobuchar: “I want to cross the divide to a higher plain in our politics. Our president divides in every single tweet, on immigrants, on people of color people he disagrees with. We are better than that as a nation.”
