US Kamala Harris accepts vice presidential nomination

Making history as the first Black woman and Asian-American on a major U.S. presidential ticket.

U.S. Senator Kamala Harris accepted the Democratic nomination for vice president, urging Americans to elect Joe Biden in November and accusing President Donald Trump of failed leadership that had cost lives and livelihoods during a pandemic.

The first US woman of colour on a major-party ticket assailed President Donald Trump’s “failure of leadership”.

Harris said Trump’s divisive leadership had brought the country to an “inflection point” and made a direct appeal to the party’s diverse electorate whose vote is crucial to defeat Trump on Nov. 3.

Harris – the child of immigrants from India and Jamaica – pledged that she and Mr Biden would revive a country fractured by the coronavirus pandemic and racial tension.
