Vice President Kamala Harris told an audience Thursday just how dark things she felt things were in America when she first took office.
“Our Democracy was under assault and our Capitol had just been attacked by insurgents,” she said, referring to supporters of former President Donald Trump storming Capitol Hill on January 6th.
The line from Harris shares a similar message from President Joe Biden’s address to Congress on Wednesday, as he described the riot on Capitol Hill as “the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.”
Harris spoke after visiting a vaccination site at the M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore and declared significant progress for the Biden administration in its first 100 days.
“Things are looking up,” she said. “America is once again on the move.”
She credited the administration’s successful vaccine effort across the country for giving more people confidence about returning to normal
