Kamala Harris announced that she’s withdrawing from the 2020 Presidential election on Twitter today.
“To my supporters, it is with deep regret—but also with deep gratitude—that I am suspending my campaign today. But I want to be clear with you: I will keep fighting every day for what this campaign has been about. Justice for the People. All the people,” she tweeted.
In her email, Harris cited lack of financial resources as a reason for her dropping out of the race. “I want to be clear: although I am no longer running for President, I will do everything in my power to defeat Donald Trump and fight for the future of our country and the best of who we are,” Harris wrote. “I know you will too. So let’s do that together.”
It wasn’t long before Trump came through with the Twitter fingers. “Too bad. We will miss you Kamala!” But the former Democratic candidate clapped back swiftly. “Don’t worry, Mr. President. I’ll see you at your trial.”
With Kamala Harris out of the race, six members are expected to participate in this month’s debate. There are just nine days to qualify and the remaining candidates are all white: Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, and Amy Klobuchar
