Washington: “The Republican convention is designed for one purpose — to soothe Donald Trump’s ego. To make him feel good. But here’s the thing, he’s the President of the Us. And it’s not supposed to be about him,” Harris said in a speech in Washington, D.C on Thursday.

“It’s supposed to be about the health, and the safety, and the well-being of the American people,” she said.

“And on that measure, Donald Trump has failed.”

Harris railed on Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, which has infected 5,863,363 million people and killed 180,595, the highest tallies in the world.

“It’s relentless. You can’t stop it with a tweet. You can’t create a distraction and hope it’ll go away. It doesn’t go away. By its nature, a pandemic is unforgiving.

“If you get it wrong at the beginning, the consequences are catastrophic. It’s very hard to catch up… President Trump got it wrong in the beginning,” she added.

Harris also addressed the August 23 police shooting of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old African-American, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, which has triggered consecutive days of protests that have grown chaotic and violent at times.

“The shots fired at Blake pierced the soul of our nation. It’s sickening to watch. It’s all too familiar. And it must end.

“The reality is that the life of a Black person in America has never been treated as fully human and we have yet to fulfil that promise of equal justice under law,” she said.

Harris noted that she and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has spoken with the Blake family, while expressing support for peaceful protests against racial injustice and police brutality.

The remarks came just hours before Trump officially accept the Republican Party’s nomination for re-election in a speech from the White House South Lawn.

Obama scoffs at Trump’s ’60 Minutes’ interview

At an event in Miami Florida, former U.S. President Barack Obama scoffed at President Donald Trump for walking out of a ’60 Minutes’ interview.

Former President Barack Obama lit into President Trump during a drive-in rally at the Florida International University campus in support of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Saturday.

With hundreds of cars honking, Obama tore into Trump from the start. The former president said the current occupant in the White House has shown little interest in taking his job seriously and that he “treats the presidency like a reality show.”

Trump “hasn’t shown any interest in doing the work or helping anybody except himself and his friends or treating the presidency like a reality show to give himself more attention. And as we noted the other day, his TV ratings are down,” Obama said.

Obama added, “The rest of us have to live with the consequences of what he’s done.”

The former president went on to speak about those consequences as it relates to Trump’s bungling of the pandemic response. And he encouraged Floridians to make Trump a one-term president.

“At least 220,000 Americans are dead. More than 100,000 small businesses have closed. Half a million jobs are gone. Half a million jobs are gone. Right here in Florida. Half a million jobs,” Obama said. “You delivered twice for me, Florida, and now I’m asking you to deliver for Joe and for Kamala [Harris].”

Trump, once Presbyterian, now says he’s a ‘nondenominational Christian’

Donald Trump

President Trump, who has long identified as a Presbyterian, now considers himself a “nondenominational Christian.”

Trump shared his change in religious identity in a written statement to Religious News Service.

“Though I was confirmed at a Presbyterian church as a child, I now consider myself to be a nondenominational Christian,” Trump wrote, without giving an explanation for the transformation or saying when it occurred.

Trump has a loyal base among white evangelicals, who in 2016 helped propel him to victory.

That year, the religious group made up roughly a quarter of the electorate, and 81 percent of them voted for Trump, according to a report by The Washington Post.

The president told RNS that his parents “taught me the importance of faith and prayer from a young age.”

Trump, who contracted COVID-19 in early October, attributed his swift recovery to his faith.

“I said, ‘There were miracles coming down from heaven.’ I meant it — Melania and I are very thankful to God for looking out for our family and returning us to good health,” he told the outlet.

The president received a cocktail of anti-virus drugs while battling COVID-19. After taking an antibody treatment by drug-maker Regeneron, Trump said he “felt like Superman.”
