    Last month, during a National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) virtual event, Democratic vice presidential nominee for the 3 November election, US Senator Kamala Harris, made a gaffe while responding to a question about her favorite “living” rapper. The Senator answered: Tupac Shakur, who was killed in 1996.

    US President Donald Trump’s 2020 election campaign reserved a ticket for Tupac Shakur, Democratic vice presidential nominee Senator Kamala Harris’s stated best rapper “alive”, at Wednesday’s debate against the current VP, Mike Pence.

    “We have left a ticket for Tupac Shakur, Sen. Harris' favorite rapper alive,” quipped Trump's senior campaign adviser, Jason Miller, during a phone press conference on Wednesday, according to multiple reporters. “I'm personally more of a Biggie fan, if he's still alive, but we will have a ticket for Tupac.”

    The Trump campaign’s communications director, Tim Murtaugh, confirmed the prank, stating that it was “true”.

    The campaign is trolling the California Senator, after she stated - during a National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) virtual event in late-September - while answering a question regarding her choice of favorite living rapper, "Tupac Shakur", who was killed in September 1996.

    Harris quickly corrected her gaffe, joking “Not alive, I know, I keep doing that.”
