Harris makes history in accepting US vice president nomination


California Senator Kamala Harris made history after accepting the Democratic nomination for vice president on Wednesday. She is the first Black and South Asian woman to accept a major party's vice-presidential nomination in the US.  

The 55-year-old addressed the Democratic National Convention last night after America’s first black president Barack Obama, who warned that US democracy might not survive if Republican President Donald Trump was reelected.
In her speech, Harris accused Trump of turning “our tragedies into political weapons.” And she urged voters to vote for Joe Biden, “a president who will bring all of us together.” 
Harris, the daughter of Jamaican and Indian immigrants, said she shared Biden's vision of America, "where all are welcome, no matter what we look like, where we come from, or who we love." 
"Donald Trump's failure of leadership has cost lives and livelihoods," she said, in her acceptance speech.
Harris, who was the first black attorney general of California, was one of several candidates vying for the Democratic nomination for president but withdrew from the race last December before the primaries began. 
Joe Biden is due to give his own acceptance speech on Thursday, closing a Democratic convention held wholly online and on television due to coronavirus safety precautions.
