Kamala Harris Teases Stephen Colbert With 2 Word Answer About Presidential Run

Kamala Harris says she'll decide on 2020 soon, chides Trump on shutdown

"(Trump) is choking the very people who are responsible for making sure we have public safety on a day-to-day basis", she said, referring to the thousands of unpaid workers, including members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Transportation Security Administration and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Her book "The Truths We Hold: An American Journey" hit the book stores on Wednesday.

Meanwhile Harris, 54, hasn't confirmed her run for President, but has said in numerous interviews that she will make that decision soon. Kamala Harris will run for President in 2020.

In the book, Harris recounts an instance when she was an intern at the Alameda County district attorney's office and an innocent bystander was one of many people arrested during a drug raid.

More and more democratic politicians are getting on board with marijuana legalization, according to Forbes. 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". She'd also be a stronger presidential candidate if she focused on that campaign. Harris said she "begged" and "pleaded" on a late Friday afternoon for a judge to hear the case so the woman could avoid spending the weekend in jail.

"When the conversation shifts, one should be expected to be questioned about those choices", Chatfield said, noting among other issues Harris's advocacy for tougher truancy laws. Meanwhile, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who is also considering a 2020 bid, often refers to her own prosecutorial past.

The Senator from California is now on her book tour.

Harris stands to make history when she does announce her run - as the both the first African American woman and the first Indian American woman to run for the White House.

The timing of the book tour and media blitz gives Harris - a first-term Democrat who still lacks the name recognition of some of her would-be competitors despite cutting a high-profile during the Supreme Court nomination hearings of Brett Kavanaugh - the opportunity to get a toehold in the news cycle while preserving some intrigue for a formal campaign launch in the near future. She has a real chance, and I'll be rooting for her.

We can only wonder what Donald Trump is thinking right now. And I think it's good for the party.
