California Campaign Events | Speeches, Interviews, Town Halls
Kamala Harris spoke with Lawrence O'Donnell of The Last Word to talk about the impeachment investigation into Donald Trump the House is conducting and what she is doing to ensure the Trump Administration will preserve all evidence related to the probe, especially evidence that could show potential wrongdoing by Trump. She also discussed a bill she coauthored with Senator Richard Blumenthal that would require the entire Trump cabinet to preserve all documents related to the impeachment inquiry.
Kamala Harris spoke with Anderson Cooper on AC360 where she called for Twitter to suspend Donald Trump's Twitter account for tweets he posted that blatantly threatened the whistleblower who reported alleged wrongdoing by him. Harris said that Twitter would have immediately suspended any other individuals account and said that they have a double standard when it comes to Trump.
Joe Biden sat down for an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live one day after Nancy Pelosi formally announced that the House of Representatives will open impeachment proceedings against President Trump due to the fact that Trump pressured the Ukrainian President to investigate Joe Biden in exchange for him releasing military aid authorized by Congress to the country. Biden expressed deep concern about Trump's actions, saying "It's such a blatant abuse of power that I don't think it can stand. Based on the material that they acknowledged today, it seems to me it's awful hard to avoid the conclusion that it is an impeachable offense and a violation of constitutional responsibility."
Beto O'Rourke spoke with CNN's Chris Cuomo from San Quentin, California to respond to the criticism he's received from his proposed mandatory gun-buyback program for assault-style rifles. O'Rourke didn't mince words, saying he is "in favor of gun confiscation" if those guns are AK-47's and military grade assault rifles. However, he was just as adamant that he is not interested in taking firearms away from hunters or people who have a gun for self defense purposes. He also claimed that "allowing the NRA to set the terms of the [gun] debate no longer works."
Elizabeth Warren a town hall at an Expo Center blocks away from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, California in front of a raucous crowd who came to hear her speak. Warren touched on subjects she has staked her campaign on, eliciting chants of "2 cents!" by the crowd, in reference to her plan to tax the ultra-wealthy an extra two percent on every dollar over $50 million, which would amount to two cents per dollar. She also torched big corporations who, in her view, have taken over the political system to the detriment of the common person.
Kamala Harris was interviewed by CNN's Wolf Blitzer where she expressed outrage at Donald Trump's words and actions in the lead up to two mass shootings that have rocked the nation and laid direct blame on the President's feet. She was also highly critical of Trump for playing golf in the wake of the shootings, saying "blood is streaming and he's playing golf."
Kamala Harris sat down with Jimmy Kimmel to discuss her Presidential campaign and talk about her challenging Joe Biden's prior stances on school integration, busing, and race during the first democratic debate. She also spent time criticizing Donald Trump for siding with dictators over the United States intelligence community, his perceived abuses of power, and her vote to vote to provide 9/11 first responders with benefits after years of being in limbo.
2020 presidential candidate and South Bend, Indiana Major Pete Buttigieg sat down on MSNBC's 'Hardball with Chris Matthews' to give a town hall meeting in front of a live audience in Fresno, California. Buttigieg answered questions about his policies, political platform and campaign strategy from moderator Chris Matthews and various audience members.
