Open and shut’: Kamala Harris argues case is clear against president Trump in introduction as Biden’s running mate

Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden made his first joint appearance Wednesday with his running mate Sen. Kamala Harris, who treated the appearance more as a closing argument against President Donald Trump than an introductory speech.
Kamala Harris will make history as the first Black woman and first Asian American person to be on a major party’s presidential ticket.

Harris argued that the Trump administration’s mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic left an American dying every 80 seconds, 16 million people out of work and millions of children unable to return to school – and no confusion about how to vote Nov. 3.
“The case against Donald Trump and Mike Pence is open and shut,” Harris said. “Just look where they’ve gotten us.”

Biden began his speech by mentioning the campaign set a single-day record for online fundraising after announcing Harris as his running mate. “I think I know why,” he said, turning around to look at her.
