Obama rebukes Trump, Harris accepts VP nomination
Turn Off Light
Wednesday night on day three at the Democratic National Convention Senator Kamala Harris officially accepted her historic vice presidential nomination.
Harris has officially become the first black woman to be a major party’s vice presidential nominee.
And former president Barack Obama’s speech was the most talked-about words of the night.
For the first time since leaving office Obama spoke plainly about President Trump.
During his speech he outlined why he thought Trump has failed the country and why America needs to elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
He said that Biden and Harris believed that no one including the president is above the law.
And that he’d hope Trump would take the presidency seriously and develop “some reverence” for democracy.
But Obama said, “He never did.”
Trump tweeted during Obama’s speech, questioning why Obama delayed his endorsement of Biden and accusing Obama of spying on his campaign.
There’s no evidence Obama has ever spied on the Trump campaign.
