Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris of California said on "Morning Joe" Friday that she's still undecided about running against President Donald Trump in 2020.

The former California district attorney is known for supporting progressive issues such as single-payer health care, gun control and cannabis decriminalization.

Harris, who responded by hinting that her office was too big to notice, did not apologize for her lack of leadership over what happened as she appeared to suggest that she was a victim of the whole ordeal, saying it was a "very painful experience" for her. They are looking for a city with quick access to airports with regular flights to California, Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and other early primary states - that would let Harris continue to hold down her day job in the Senate.

"It's 'novel, ' no pun intended". Kamala Harris will run for President in 2020.

The comedian had warmed Harris up by asking her about her new book, The Truths We Hold: An American Journey. Warren announced hers December 31 and followed with a campaign video and a swing through Iowa last weekend.

Last week, the Massachusetts Democrat became the most prominent person yet to take steps toward a presidential run by forming an exploratory committee.

"We need to give the American public more credit", the Democratic senator said. "A good announcement is important only because a bad announcement will create some press narrative that will slow you down in the beginning".

The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 0.4 percent to 23,879.12 and the Nasdaq composite was 0.9 percent higher at 6,957.08. After rising for several days, the S&P 500 has hit a level of technical resistance in not surpassing 2,600, said Scott.

Ms. Harris argued that Democrats should not cave to those sorts of tactics.

"There are so many myths that we still are challenged with", she continued.

The senator's book is not a traditional memoir, but according to her publisher, "a book about the core truths that unite us, and the long struggle to discern what those truths are and how best to act upon them, in her own life and across the life of our country".

"We are seeing ascending and descending economies".

Harris also stuck up for Michigan Representative Rashida Tlaib (D) when conservative co-host Meghan McCain brought up Tlaib's now-infamous "impeach the motherf***er" quote, which the freshman representative made in reference to President Trump.

Beyond the book, Harris supported legislation that passed the Senate late a year ago and overhauls the criminal justice system, especially when it comes to sentencing rules.
