Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) said on MSNBC’s “Deadline” Wednesday that President Donald Trump just isn’t “fit to be president” given his dealings with Russia and how his administration has handled the COVID-19 pandemic.
MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace said to Harris, “I want to come back one more time to the Russia bounty crisis because I want to ask you how Americans should feel about it. And I want to ask if you heard anything that supports the president’s contentions in the last two hours that the whole thing is a hoax?”

Harris says Trump is somebody ‘who has conducted foreign policy in a way that has been about isolationism’
Harris replied, “The way that I think about this is this. There has been so much that’s been happening inside our country which has focused us inward, but we cannot lose sight of our nation’s standing in relationship to the rest of the world and the value of having a commander-in-chief who takes seriously our role.”
“Someone who, unlike Donald Trump,” Harris continued, “understands the need for relationships, the need to put in check adversaries, and also embrace allies.”
“But instead, we have in Donald Trump someone who has conducted foreign policy in a way that has been about isolationism,” Harris said. “It’s been about, going at his own way in a way that has been damaging to our national security.”
Wallace queried Harris, “What are visitors to make, as they’re attempting to process the fact we have still another scandal involving Donald Trump with Russia at its punch line?”

Harris on Trump and Russia: ‘Something’s afoot, right? It just —it doesn’t smell right’
A laughing Harris responded, “He’s got something going on there. Let’s just be honest about it. Something’s afoot, right? It just —it doesn’t smell right. I don’t know what it is, but, um.”
Wallace pressed the Democrat senator, “But if you’re just reading the paper and all you know is that the intelligence community had to hide this intel in plain sight, in the PDB, which is one of the most sacred documents created, it’s created for one person, it’s created for the president, they had to hide something in plain sight because it said something potentially bad, a lead about Cold War-like Russian covert lethal actions designed to kill Americans and Donald Trump is calling it a hoax, how are we supposed to feel about that?”

‘Let’s maybe not overanalyze Donald Trump… you can forget pop psychology about this guy’
Harris said, “The same manner we should have felt from day one when that he called Russian interference when he had called the coronavirus a hoax. We’re likely to feel the same manner, which is, this man just isn’t fit to be president, and we truly need a new president. That’s how we’re likely to feel.”
“Let’s not overanalyze Donald Trump,” Harris said. “I literally, no more pop psychology about this guy.”
The senator finished, “Let’s just do what needs to have finished, which is to place our efforts into the election that is coming and elect a president who actually understands the magnitude and the importance of the office.”
