Joe Biden picks Kamala Harris as his running mate

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris

The Democratic Party in the United States has chosen Joe Biden to be their candidate for President of the United States for the elections that will be held in November. Joe Biden will be running against current US President Donald Trump in these elections.

Last week, Biden chose Kamala Harris as his running mate, or his candidate for Vice President. This is seen as a bold move on many levels.

Kamala Harris is the daughter of a black man and Indian woman. Her mother grew up in Tamil Nadu, India, and migrated to America. Ms. Harris became a lawyer, and served as Attorney-General of California (the main legal advisor to the State of California). She is also a US Senator.

This is a bold and some say, fitting choice as she stands for issues that the current President Donald Trump has stood against. She is the daughter of an immigrant, and a Black woman, at a time when America under Trump has been burning with movements like Black Lives Matter and anti-immigration. She is an incredibly accomplished woman, and together, Kamala Harris and Joe Biden present a starkly alternate choice for America.

Let’s see how the people vote in November!
