The first-term senator criticized President Trump, saying American democracy is "under attack and on the line like never before".

"We are here at this moment in time because we must answer a fundamental question", Harris said. Who are we as Americans? So let's answer that question, America.

Set against the flags of all 50 states, but delivered in a deeply divided America, the address invoked the trauma of the Watergate era of high cynicism and low confidence in Washington's leaders.

Before a crowd of more than 20,000 people in her hometown Oakland, Harris on Sunday threaded together a biography from her years in the Bay Area with her work as a prosecutor and a senator, and set those details against a broader populist vision about "running to be President of the people, by the people and for all people", reports The New York Times.

"On the subject of transnational gangs, let's be perfectly clear".

Democratic presidential candidate Kamala (KAH'mah-lah) Harris says she's the kind of leader who can unify the country and would fight for the needs of all Americans.

Harris' campaign is filled with historic possibility.

However, though "very excited" by Harris' bid, Brueckner said she needed to delve more into her record as a prosecutor.

"I don't agree with her policy, but as a woman, it is exciting to see this for her", she confessed.

Harris' launch has drawn heavily on symbolism.

If Booker enters the race, he and Harris could face fierce competition for support from Black voters.

SAFE TO SAY there's lots of Int'l media interest in @KamalaHarris Oakland presidential campaign launch, I stopped counting at 80 cameras, w/ an army of journalists. The state of California has played a leading role in resistance to the presidency of Donald Trump.

Harris was born in Oakland and spent part of her childhood there, before moving to Canada with her mother.

Hundreds of people crowded the area in front of Oakland City Hall for the event, which began shortly before 1 p.m. local time.

The California senator worked as a prosecutor, District Attorney of San Francisco, and Attorney General of California.

Harris did not discuss any of her "truths" in detail.

Harris also pledged to reverse the administration's tax cuts, which she described as a "giveaway to the top big corporations and the top one percent", to pay for what she promised would be "the largest working and middle-class tax cut in a generation, up to $500 a month to help America's families make ends meet". "The president's medieval vanity project is not going to stop them", Harris said.

Harris also did not shy away from taking on Trump directly. She also said that, as president, she would "always speak with decency and moral clarity and treat all people with dignity and respect".

"We are at an inflection point in the history of our world", she said at the rally.

All of them have to pass through a grilling presidential primary beginning next January, the victor of which would be announced in the Democratic National Convention in July 2020. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Several other Democrats have already declared their intentions, including former Maryland Rep. John Delaney and former Obama administration housing chief Julian Castro. Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey, Sherrod Brown of OH and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota are also looking at the race. In the weeks before last November's elections, Harris traveled to the leadoff caucus state to campaign on behalf of Democrats, and also visited other early-voting states.
