WASHINGTON – Sen. Kamala Harris labeled President Donald Trump a "predator" that she could take on due to her background as a prosecutor — a new line of attack against the president as the California Democrat is surging following her debate performance last week.
While speaking in Iowa Wednesday, Harris invoked her record as a prosecutor, saying that she had gone after a number of groups that have "preyed" on Americans, including big banks and pharmaceutical companies.
“I know predators," she said, after rattling off the list. "And we have a predator living in the White House."
Harris said that Trump "has predatory nature and predatory instincts."
"The things about predators you should know, they pray on the vulnerable. They prey on those who they do not believe are strong," she continued. "The thing about you must importantly know, predators are cowards.
"So when we look at this campaign, and we look at that task before us, it will be to successfully prosecute the case against four more years, against Donald Trump, and I am prepared to do that," she concluded.
