Kamala Harris cheers Wall Street support as big-money donors line up for Biden

America’s biggest financial institutions are backing Democratic nominee Joe Biden, banking on a “blue wave” to boost the economy, a message that Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, touted during Wednesday night’s debate.

“Joe Biden’s economic plan, Moody’s — which is a reputable Wall Street firm — has said will create 7 million more jobs than Donald Trump’s,” Harris said as she faced off against incumbent Mike Pence.

TRUMP HITS BIDEN ON FRACKING: ‘PENNSYLVANIA WILL NEVER GO FOR HIM’

Despite Biden’s promises to raise taxes on corporations and the wealthy and regulate banks more tightly, he has raked in five times as much as Trump in donations from the securities and investment industry, with an eye-popping sum of $51.1 million. The incumbent has garnered just $10.5 million, according to

Kamala Harris in Wednesday’s debate declared that Joe Biden’s Administration would make the U.S. “carbon neutral” by 2035—a more ambitious goal than even California has set—while at the same time disavowing plans to ban fracking for natural gas. We look forward to Mr. Biden explaining this apparent contradiction in the next debate, if there is one.

Meantime, it’s worth highlighting a new Energy Information Administration report that shows how fracking and competitive energy markets have done more to reduce CO2 emissions over the last decade than government regulation and renewable subsidies. Vice President Mike Pence made this point on Wednesday night, and

Kamala Harris on Trump’s debt: ‘It means you owe money to somebody’

  • Kamala Harris gave a blunt refresher on President Donald Trump’s finances early on in the vice-presidential debate Wednesday night.
  • “It would be really good to know who the president of the United States — the commander-in-chief — owes money to,” Harris said, referring to The New York Times’ investigation into Trump’s taxes that found him in debt for hundreds of millions of dollars in debt, $139 million of which he’s on the hook for within five years.
  • “Because the American people have a right to know what is influencing the president’s decisions, and is he making those decisions on the best interests of the American people — of you — or self-interest.”

(CNSNews.com) – Democrats in and out of office are sounding alarms about the “national security threat” President Trump’s reported indebtedness may pose.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Joe Biden’s running mate, told MSNBC on Monday:

This is why the American people deserve to have a full accounting of the financial interest, including the indebtedness of the president of the United States. And I do share in that concern. Who does he owe the money to? Tell us. Who do you owe the money to?

And do you owe debt to any foreign nation? You know, do you owe debt, do you owe money — let’s just be clear about what debt means. You owe somebody money. Do you owe anybody money who is impacted by any decision you make as president of the United
