News : Kamala Harris on Her 2020 Presidential Campaign and Trump’s Vanity Wall : The Daily Show with Trevor Noah | Techtips4world

let me ask you this as someone who’s wanting to be President one thing I’ve always enjoyed about watching you is you know like in hearings you focused you you you know what you want to talk about you know what the issues are but at the same time you you know you have a light side to you as well are you ready for how frivolous some of the campaign trail is going to be like I mean you see now people are asking if people know how to eat fried chicken properly and do people know how to eat corn and like are you ready for that part you think so I was in South Carolina recently right and I’m gonna tell you you know one of the things I will say this that I love about campaigning you meet the angels walking among us you meet people you otherwise may never meet who are doing incredible work in their communities love their communities are leaders in their
 communities without any requirement that people applaud them or pay attention to them they’re just doing great work and I love that about campaigning
 on the other side of it so I’m in South Carolina okay so first of all let me just say I’ve never run for president United States before there’s no
 experience and and part of the new experiences all these people will follow when you go somewhere just to eat you’re like when I go somewhere to eat it’s cuz I’m hungry and I really want to be able to eat and you know when you have been working for a long period year time and you’re really hungry you can get kind of primal so I go into this place and it’s a Rodney Scott is his name and he’s got in South Carolina so South Carolina has got different kinds of regions and based on the region the barbecue sauce is different oh okay a little bit bigger based versus like tomato based versus mustard base all right so his is vinegar base and his and his restaurant is just the food is amazing so I’m standing in line and there’s like all this press over there and I can hear this
 whispering by some of the press what’s she gonna order what she can order did she order meat or did she just order like a salad right first of all why would that be a debatable or even a subject of discussion right right when we are dealing with math issues like massive issues in our country we’re dealing with the issues of massive inequality we are dealing with the concern that we’ve got a president embarrassing us in Munich we’ve got so many things to talk about yes but you order did you order it really is
 no no it’s interesting and this is this is what’s gonna be tough for you and every other Democratic candidate is that you do realize that you are going to be held to different standards than Donald Trump because what people consider a scandal for him has now it has to be the utmost degree I mean he can basically threaten someone on Twitter and people are like that’s the president being the president but if you order salad when you should order pulled pork people are coming for you this is my point so then okay I’m gonna get goes on so in the same trip then so I care a lot about small businesses right now in fact that’s part of my agenda about what we should do to actually give more federal incentives for it for small businesses for investment and growth so including that when you look at a path towards financial health and success when you look at how small businesses run
 themselves in a way that it’s not just about running the business but being a member of the community business leaders are also civic leaders they’re community leaders okay I don’t know so I’m
 visiting small businesses on a street called ladies Street which by the way on ladies Street all but one of the
 business owners is a woman Wow yeah it’s really fantastic so I’m visiting this one where the woman who runs the the salon Naida styled by Maeda she was formerly in foster care she was homeless she put herself through school she had never worn any clothes for her almost her entire life that was first hand all second hand right so she decided to start this vintage store where the proceeds of her sales go to helping women who have who have don’t have clothes so for example for the local college she gives clothes to women who are going for interviews and job
 interviews and
 just incredible work so I’m in the store and I’m hearing her story and then you know I want to buy something and so then I look at this multicolored sequins jacket really great for Pride Parade right and I try it on and then that’s it and I leave and I and I was in South Carolina then I fly back and I get home and my husband’s like do you know because he wasn’t with me he’s like so there’s this jacket that apparently you tried on it it’s now got its own life and like apparently it became the subject of all this controversy by journalists around should she be doing something like shopping if she’s wanting for president and then all the others I’m just ridiculous right it’s it’s it really is an interesting journey to be on when you have policy ideas and people are looking into the small like the frivolous as you say I mean you’re visiting a business owner and people go like should you be shopping or not and the story should be about the need for small businesses in America right the support that they deserve understanding that that is a path to economic growth an opportunity for the story the stories about the jacket I bought it also a few things because honestly I could chat to you forever I mean the what I’d like to know is you you have this vision for America you you are saying to Americans I want you to elect me as president of the United States you have had some strong words to say about the current president’s border walls specifically now he’s pitched this as one of the things that is going to prevent drugs from coming into the country and this is going to keep Americans safe you have said no this is a vanity project why do you say that and why do you think it will not help ok so as we have discussed I had a career as a prosecutor that included prosecuting transnational criminal organizations I’ve gone to the border I have personally seen the tunnels I have seen photographs of tunnels between Mexico and the United right that were literally as smooth as the walls in this studio right line with air conditioning and lighting right and the point being that these were built because people are making a whole lot of money in the trafficking of guns drugs and human beings uh-huh that won’t go stop them this is about tunnels it’s about ports of entry he has created a fiction for Edwin and you watch the State of the Union uh-huh because the narrative write the yarn that he is pulling suggests that there is some link between transnational criminal activity and these children crossing the border with their parents fleeing murder capitals of the world seeking asylum in the country that has always proudly held itself out to be
 so that’s understandable now what we’re starting to see is different Democratic candidates and hopefuls coming out and saying what their opinion or the idea of a border enforcement I would be Frank Biddle Rock why hasn’t formally entered the race has come out and said he would remove the existing war it has about 700 miles of border Wang he said oh I think all walls are bad and I think all existing barriers would be rude would you remove the walls if you became president the walls that exist now no I believe that we need border security and but we need smart border security we need we we can’t we can’t have open borders we need to have border security all nations do all nations define their borders but our we should not have a policy and a perspective that is
 grounded in keeping people out for the sake of of this nationalistic kind of thing that this president is trying to push we should have borders that also allow people to come in that is part of the strength of our nation we are a nation that was founded and and has grown because we have always welcomed immigrants we are a nation of immigrants look your people are immigrants
 kidnapped and brought over on a slave ship right right but pump pump is arguing he’s saying as he already said he says I love immigrants if they come in Legally folks I just want them to come in through the front door that’s what he says so he’s saying I don’t mind I she’s like I’m with you , live I’m married an immigrant but I once I want an immigrant to come in through the front door that’s that’s what his argument is but the argument does not hold water because he has also not put in place or even advocated for
 comprehensive immigration reform he has not advocated for he is he has shut down the daca system I mean listen this is a deferred action for childhood arrivals there was a policy in place that said for those children who were brought to the United States some before they could walk or talk they vetted a system where they had to clear a vet had they
 committed a crime no were they in college were they being productive yes if all of those were criteria were met yes they received protection
 which he ended and it’s only because of the courts that those kids are not now being deported so he cannot stand on principle or American values or morals in taking the position he has taken because it is immoral and it is against American values these positions he has taken on immigration yes we need border security we also need comprehensive immigration reform we also need to protect those who are fleeing violence and harm by giving them an opportunity to be heard around a silent he’s
 shutting that down he’s not even letting these people walk in to have their hearing too weak so we can determine the legitimacy of the harm that they are fleeing when you look at the future of America then as a presidential hopeful you see yourself sitting in that Oval Office what would you like the new message of America to be if there were a post Trump presidency at which there will be the message has to be that we are a nation that values truth and justice the message has to be that we will continue to be what by nature we have always been which is a source of our strength which is an aspirational nation mm-hmm we were founded on noble ideals the ideals that were present when we wrote the Constitution of the United States and all of its amendments in the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence and said we are all equal and should be treated that way back in 1776 we are an aspirational nation we have always fought to reach those ideals now let’s be clear eyed we’ve never quite reached those ideals right but part of our strength is we fight to reach those ideals and as president of the United States I would hold true to keep fighting understanding who we can be unburdened who we have been but we have to have leadership in this country that values the integrity of public service and the value of leadership understanding that it is not about self service it should be about service of others it’s about in
 integrity and it’s about the public trust we don’t have that right now I mean one thing I hope doesn’t happen on the campaign trail is that it the Democratic race becomes only about Trump I mean that was something that was frustrating in the previous race and one thing I think a lot of people are excited to hear about is your plans one of the things you talk about in the book and you have laid out is a giant boost for middle-class families in America giving them tax cuts and getting them to where they need to be right you’ve also talked about doing it in a very specific way where people would be able to get that money in in smaller increments as opposed to getting one lump sum at the end of the year which more families may appreciate what is that about it okay how did you come I’m very excited about it and if elected when elected and this is what I’m proposing is that we change the tax code in a way that benefits and lifts up working families and
 middle-class families so here is the fact almost half of American families are a $400 unexpected emergency away from really being toppled in terms of their financial well-being the reality in America today is that 99 percent of the counties in the United States in 99% of those counties if you’re minimum-wage worker working full time you cannot afford market-rate on a one-bedroom apartment these are the realities in America today the reality in America today is that we are not starting out on the even playing field not everyone has equal access to a path to success and so we have to correct course I propose we lift up those middle-class working families so my specific proposal is that for families that are making less than $100,000 a year they receive a tax credit that they can collect at $500 a month understanding that is the bit that is the difference between being able to make it or literally facing disruption and real upheaval because we’re talking about the unexpected expense around getting the car repaired we’re looking at the fact that one in four people in America who have diabetes cannot afford their insulin and so it’s the the difference between being able to pay for your medication or not and don’t get me started on the pharmaceutical we will soon yeah
 right and it is about also understanding that we have to lift up the middle and working class of this of this country and understand that the rules have been written in a way that I’ve excluded them we and he just passed a tax bill that benefit the top 1% and big corporations they don’t need that money they don’t need that money and and and we have got to correct the course in a way that understands that working families are the heart and soul and the strength of our nation and we’ve got to lift them up and we’ve got to support and my proposal is actually by by economists has been described as what would be the most significant tax benefit for middle-class families and generations it really has been noted by many let’s let’s talk about the pharmaceutical companies per se but about your plans for Americans in a few areas you you’ve come out and you’ve said
 unlike Bernie Sanders and Ocasio quartz has exergy you said yes I’m a Democrat but I’m not a Democratic Socialist but you you you have come out and said that you proposed Medicare for all yes you’ve said that you believe that there should be debt-free student loans you know people should be able to study without being in debt you you’ve come up with many proposals that that are similar to what somebody like Bernie Sanders would say and then obviously many of your own what do you think separates you from them then well I will say what I feel very strongly I feel very strongly that we need to have a system in this place where everybody has equal access to success and we can do that in a way that is about lifting people up we can do it in a way that is about recognizing that all people also want a system where there is going to be a fair market and there is going to be competition but let’s not be lulled into believing right now that everyone has equal access to that we start on the same base because we don’t and so that’s got to be
 corrected and it can be corrected but it’s gonna have to be about a number of things including the way that we tax people and the way that we are
 distributing benefits let’s look at it from another example which is the public education system of our country
 everybody’s not starting out on the same base in the same place and the we are a society and this is where we have to speak truths also Trevor
 we are a society that pretends to care about education well guess what not so much the education of other people’s children let’s be honest about that because if we did care about that we would not have allowed the public education system in America to
 deteriorate and the way it has because we are not paying teachers their value we are not putting resources into our schools I have met more teachers than I care to tell you who are working two jobs sometimes three to put food on the table and because also they’re coming out of their own pocket to buy school supplies for their students we are a society that is not paying people the value of their labor and of their work right and these are the things that have to be adjusted you don’t have to be a socialist to believe everyone should have equal opportunities on a path to success well it’s it’s going to be a crazy journey for you it’s going to be exciting
 the book I really recommend to anyone who wants to get to know the person behind the name and you you also have a children’s book which is playing
 superheroes are everywhere it’s really fun illustrations and it’s it’s
 inspirational stories for kids out there the troops we hold and superheroes are available everywhere now senator Kamala Harris every body
