Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris delivers remarks during a campaign event on Aug. 27 in Washington DC

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., speaks after Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden introduced her as his running mate during a campaign event at Alexis Dupont High School in Wilmington, Del., Wednesday, Aug. 12, 2020.

'I am clear that Russian Federation interfered in the [presidential election] of 2016, ' Harris said, noting that she serves on the Senate Intelligence Committee, which has published reports on the interference.

Her remarks come as protests against racial discrimination and police brutality are continuing in the United States.

The strong criticism from Harris, the first Black and Indian-American woman on a major party vice presidential ticket came less than two months before the USA presidential election. Coronavirus pandemic that has killed more than 191,000 Americans and infected 6.3 million others is a major election issue. Concern about pressure from the White House to speed up the vaccine's development and approval pushed drugmakers to plan a public pledge to not send any Covid-19 vaccine to the FDA for review without extensive safety and efficacy data.

"The reality of America today is what we have seen over generations and, frankly, since our inception, which is, we do have two systems of justice in America", Harris told CNN in an interview.

President Donald Trump has long promised a vaccine to the coronavirus, at one point saying that one would be available around the time of the presidential election in November.

The US has two systems of justice for Black and White Americans, Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris has said, as the Indian-orign Senator rebuked President Donald Trump and his Attorney General for denying there is systemic racism in the country " s justice system.

"Let's just say there is a vaccine that is approved and even distributed before the election".

'He's looking at an election coming up in less than 60 days and he's grasping for whatever he can get to pretend he can be a leader on this issue when he's not, ' she said. "I will not take his word for it". "We have published detailed reports about exactly what we believe happened, and I do believe that there will be foreign interference in the 2020 election and that Russian Federation will be at the front of the line".

"But we will surpass and surmount and get around those obstacles", Harris said.

Harris added: These things are all at play, and I am very realistic. I'm a realist about it, Joe's a realist about it, ' she added.
