Readers React: Kamala Harris is a lot more qualified to be president than Donald Trump
To the editor: It appears that the letter writers who insist Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) does not deserve to be considered a viable presidential candidate failed to look up her biography.
She was the district attorney for the city and county of San Francisco for several years, pushing legislation to protect the rights of consumers. During her tenure, the felony conviction rate rose from 52% in 2003 to 67% in 2006. Convictions of drug dealers increased from 56% to 74% by 2006
After she was elected to be California’s attorney general in 2010, she participated in the National Mortgage Settlement against five banks, resulting in $12 billion of debt reduction for California homeowners. She also sponsored the California Homeowner Bill of Rights in the Legislature.
Finally, I would like these writers to inform us what Donald Trump had done to deserve his nomination by the Republican Party and election to the presidency other than running a TV show called “The Apprentice.”
