Harris, one of several Democratic candidates for the 2020 US presidential race, pointed out some comparisons between herself and Trump, as the latter faces impeachment by Democrats in the House of Representatives.
Harris claims that she prosecuted “sex predators” while pointing out that Trump is a member of that club. She also claims that Trump has run for-profit sham educational institutions, and noted that has made efforts to shut down such institutions.
I prosecuted sex predators. Trump is one.— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) November 20, 2019
I shut down for-profit scam colleges. He ran one.
I held big banks accountable. He's owned by them.

Another point of comparison promoted on the video was that, while Trump is “owned by big banks” she has “held banks accountable”.
“I'm not just prepared to take on Trump, I'm prepared to beat him,” tweeted the Democratic presidential hopeful.
Twitterians were quick to react to the former California attorney general's ad, with some praising her for “bringing the fire” and “breaking” the Internet.

Others thought that Harris was being too judgmental.
You're too bad a prosecutor to know the difference between allegation and conviction too, apparently.— Styxhexenhammer666 (@Styx666Official) November 20, 2019
Also what about those thousands of young black dudes you threw in the prison system for drug possession? Hahaha!
