Kamala Harris & Joe Biden Wear Masks While Arriving For First Joint Speech as Running Mates in Presidential Election

Kamala Harris walks side by side with Joe Biden while arriving for their first speech together, held at Alexis I. duPont High School in Wilmington, Del. on Wednesday (August 12).

The 55-year-old Vice Presidential candidate wore a sharp blue suit for the appearance next to the 77-year-old Democratic nominee, and they were joined by their spouses, Douglas Emhoff and Dr. Jill Biden.

During her speech, Kamala touched on many subjects including student debt, racial inequality, coronavirus, and much more.

“This is a moment of real consequence for America,” she started out. “Everything we care about, our economy, our health, our children, the kind of country we live in, it’s all on the line.”

Kamala also commented on President Trump’s mishandling of the coronavirus, which has claimed more than 165,000 Americans’ lives.

“This virus has impacted almost every country but there’s a reason it has hit America worse than any other advanced nation. It’s because of Trump’s failure to take it seriously from the start,” she said. “His refusal to get testing up and running, his flip-flopping on social distancing and wearing masks. His delusional belief that he knows better than the experts. All of that is the reason and the reason an American dies of Covid-19 every 80 seconds.”
