Biden expected to announce U.S. presidential running mate this week

Harris said she believed the women who accused Biden of sexual misconduct. And we talk about Biden's advanced age - I mean, he is 77 years old.

The pair will face off against Republican President Donald Trump, 74, and Vice President Mike Pence, 61, who are seeking their second term as the country faces challenges in dealing with the ongoing coronavirus outbreaks, a pandemic-induced recession and an increasingly assertive China. She now hopes Harris will become a leading adviser to Biden on the issue.

Accusing the Obama administration of spying on his campaign, Trump said Monday: "They used the intelligence agencies of our country to spy on my campaign and they have been caught". For instance, back in July 2019, when California Sen.

"Slow Joe and Phony Kamala".

"It's unsafe and it's wrong - and has real life consequences for Asian Americans and Asian immigrants". Kamala Harris will join the Biden presidential ticket.

Former President Bill Clinton, Biden's wife Jill, a long-time educator; 2004 Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer are among those speaking Tuesday night.

Harris at times came under criticism from some in the Black community and from progressive advocates for her record as California attorney general where, they say, she did not do enough to investigate police shootings and too often sided with prosecutors in wrongful conviction cases.

"I dey proud then, and I dey proud now to get her as my partner for dis campaign".

The first-term Democratic governor is scheduled to speak August 18 along with former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and U.S. Sen.

In March, he announced his intention to pick a woman for the post and the campaign has examined a list of governors, senators and congresswomen since May.

The Biden-Harris ticket had been floated as early as last Spring as the possible "dream" ticket for Democrats in 2020.

But Harris, who beat out almost a dozen other women to become the running mate, has shown she can parry such blows, a cherished quality for anyone facing an onslaught of negativity from a caustic president.

The letter was composed as a statement of solidarity in response to the more-than-700 Black women who signed a letter previously calling for a Black woman Vice President.

The two will take on the Democratic National Convention virtually, which starts August 17 and runs 'til August 20.

As attorney general, Harris developed a working relationship with Mr Biden's late son Beau, who held the same position in the state of Delaware. Tammy Duckworth and Kamala Harris on Thursday. "The last thing we should do is sell them billions in weapons", she wrote on Twitter a year ago.
