Kamala Harris Will Deliver A Speech Ahead Of Trump’s State Of The Union

WASHINGTON – Presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris announced she is giving a speech before President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday evening.

Harris’s speech will be livestreamed on Facebook starting at 7:45 p.m. ET, she announced on Twitter Tuesday. Trump’s speech is at 9 p.m ET.

“It’s critical we speak truth to the American people during this inflection moment in our country’s history,” Harris wrote on her Senate Twitter account Tuesday.

Harris’s prebuttal will also precede the official Democratic response delivered by onetime Georgia governor hopeful Stacey Abrams. Many on the left accused Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders of stealing Abrams’s thunder by announcing his own rebuttal to the State of the Union.

“Why is he talking over the black woman our party chose to speak for us?” author Amy Siskind wrote on Twitter Monday.

Sanders is expected to run for president in 2020.

That brings the number of State of the Union responses from the Left to four: Harris, Abrams, Sanders and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who is delivering a Spanish-language rebuttal.

Harris had praised Becerra ahead of his speech.

“California’s own Attorney General Xavier Becerra is a tireless voice for justice and has stood up for our values every single day since this president took office,” she wrote on Twitter Monday. “His Spanish-language State of the Union response tomorrow will be a strong message for progress and our future.”

Harris provided a link to her Senate Facebook page in her tweet announcing the streamed response.

Trump said on Thursday that he hopes Abrams does a “good job” with the Democrats’ response to his State of the Union address next Tuesday.
