Speaking to “The Root” far-left MSNBC host Al Sharpton says he’ll be meeting with Biden and will press for VP Harris to have more power.
“I would like the president to put her in charge of the voting package and criminal justice,” Sharpton said. “Also, he needs to put Kamala at the forefront of the George Floyd bill that he promised to get through. She was a prosecutor and a state attorney general, so she knows the criminal justice system and understands both sides.”
“She is also a Black woman in the time of Breonna Taylor and other Black women who have suffered racism, so I think that she should have those assignments and be able to get certain things to Congress,” Sharpton explained.
“I will communicate that to the president,” Sharpton vowed. “It would be unwise for me to have her at my event and use that as a platform to raise the issue, so instead, I will speak directly to the president.”
“We have reached out to him and said we want to meet. We have had two meetings with him, and we intend to meet with him before mid-November,” he added.
Sharpton expects the meeting will take place “within the next 30 days.”
