DEMS/ELECTION/SEX ABUSE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WOMEN: “Kamala Harris on Wednesday [7-3-19] debuted a new line of attack against President Donald Trump, saying that her background as a prosecutor made her uniquely suited to take on ‘a predator’ like the president. At an Iowa event, during a riff on Trump’s trade and health care policies and his handling of the surge of migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border, the 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful ripped the president for betraying the American people…The sharper rhetoric comes as Harris seeks to capitalize on a surge in polling since her commanding performance during last week’s Democratic debates. In particular, Harris dominated former Vice President Joe Biden in a bruising exchange over Biden’s civil rights record…Harris performed well enough to catch Trump’s eye as he attended the G-20 summit in Osaka, Japan, where he downplayed her performance. Harris’ strong showing also caught the ire of conservatives who sought to cast doubt on whether Harris is ‘black enough’ to speak with authority on matters of race, prompting her Democratic rivals to race to her defense.
