Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris made a trip to South Florida Thursday to speak with Black community leaders at Florida Memorial University.

Harris was in South Florida with Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson and Miami Shores Mayor Crystal Wagar where she attended a community conversation on challenges facing the African American community.
Beforehand, Harris visited a local Venezuelan restaurant to speak with locals.
The campaign trip comes after reports that President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign spent $95 million on television ads to air in Florida from Labor Day through Election Day.
Recent polls show Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden leads Trump by a small margin in the battleground state.
At the historically Black college, Harris said recent revelations about what Trump knew about the novel coronavirus back in February could have saved lives.
“He suggested that to wear a mask is a sign of weakness as opposed to a sign of strength,” Harris said. “This is the president of the United States. So, we continue to have examples of the fact that this is an individual who is not concerned about the health safety and well-being of the American people.”
