Senator Kamala Harris dropped out of the 2020 Democratic primary race today. This prompted Donald Trump to gloat about it on Twitter like an idiot. But suffice it to say that Kamala got the last word, and she just hinted about what she thinks his fate is going to end up being.
Donald Trump sarcastically tweeted “Too bad. We will miss you Kamala!” In response, Kamala Harris said “Don’t worry, Mr. President. I’ll see you at your trial.” Here’s the kicker. Trump is definitely about to be on impeachment trial in the Senate, where Kamala Harris has a powerful presence. But that’s not the only trial he’s going to end up facing.
After Kamala Harris dropped out today, there was quite a bit of speculation across social media that a Democratic president could choose her to be U.S. Attorney General. This is for good reason, as Harris has already proven herself as the former Attorney General of California. She’d be the perfect person to clean up the Department of Justice, after what Donald Trump and Bill Barr have done to it. That would also mean that Harris would be the one bringing federal criminal charges against Trump; she’d be the one responsible for putting him on criminal trial.
So you can read into Kamala Harris’ tweet however you like. She’s obviously referring primarily to Donald Trump’s upcoming Senate impeachment trial. But is she also referring to his inevitable post-presidency federal criminal trial? Did she just subtly throw her hat in the ring for Attorney General? We’ll see; we know we haven’t heard the last from her.
