- Shortly before Trump gave his acceptance speech, Democratic VP nominee Kamala Harris nailed the ultimate bottom-line argument for Trump’s November defeat. “Donald Trump has failed at the most basic and important job of a president of the United States: He failed to protect the American people, plain and simple.” Keep doubling down.
