Though she hasn't yet, she is widely expected to and her ongoing tour to promote her new book, "The Truths We Hold: An American Journey", is adding to the speculation.

Harris, who is of mixed African American and Indian American heritage, had indicated earlier she would decide about the run during the past holidays.

"The irony here is that this president is talking about a wall because this is going to keep out so-called terrorists - which we know is not true - in the interest of public safety when each day he's choking the actual people who are responsible for public safety", Harris said. "They are smarter than that".

"He ran as the law-and-order president", Elleithee said of Trump. "So I'm supposed to ask you, are you running?"

"I will make my decision soon, not at this very moment", Ms. Harris told CNN in an interview. According to CBS, Kamala Harris plans a major event on Martin Luther King Day to announce her entry into the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.

After Washington, Harris' book tour will take her to the Kaufmann Concert Hall in NY on Friday, then San Francisco before two stops in Los Angeles concluding January 13.

The junior senator applauded rookie congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for her passion. "Should she win the nomination and does it by navigating this topic well, then I think she would be a strong voice and a force to be reckoned with when it comes to issues of law and order, criminal justice and civil rights as they collide in a general election". And I think it's good for the party.

To the delight of the audience, a smiling Harris responded, "I might". "Let's look at the bold ideas, and I'm eager that we have those discussions".

On the Republican side, President Trump has stated on numerous occasions that he will run for reelection.

While Harris said that she took "full responsibility", she did not apologize and did not acknowledge the alleged victim involved in the incident.

"Emma Lazarus's words, 'Give me your exhausted, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, ' speaks to the true character of what our country can be: a generous country that respects and embraces those who have made the hard journey to our shores, often fleeing harm", Harris wrote. "We can do that and also focus on issues like what we need to do to build a healthy economy".
