Kamala Harris criticized Trump’s remarks encouraging Russia to attack Nato allies, stating that the American people would not accept a president bowing to a dictator.

She also condemned House Republicans for stalling the $95bn foreign military aid package, emphasizing the need to support Ukraine.

“The idea that the former president of the US would say that he – quote – encourages a brutal dictator to invade our allies, and that the United States of America would simply stand by and watch,” Harris said. “No previous US president, regardless of their party, has bowed down to a Russian dictator before.”

“We are seeing an example of something I just believe that the American people would never support, which is a US president, current or former, bowing down with those kinds of words, and apparently an intention of conduct, to a Russian dictator.”

Harris expressed optimism for bipartisan support in the House but raised concerns about Israel’s military actions in Rafah.

“We need to do our part [to support Ukraine], and we have been very clear that Congress must act,” she said.

“I think all members of Congress, and all elected leaders, would understand this is a moment where America has the ability to demonstrate through action where we stand on issues like this, which is, do we stand with our friends in the face of extreme brutality or not?”

“One point that gives me some level of optimism is we are clear in the knowledge that there is bipartisan support, both in the Senate, which we’ve seen a demonstration of, and the House,” she said.

She called for Israel to protect innocent Palestinians but did not confirm halting weapons supplies if Netanyahu disregards Biden’s warnings.

“So let’s put this to a vote in the House, and I’m certain that it will pass. We are working to that end, and we’re not giving up,” she said.

“We have been clear that we defend Israel’s right to defend itself. However, how it does so matters,” she said.

“Far too many Palestinians, innocent Palestinian civilians, have been killed. Israel [needs to take] concrete steps to protect innocent Palestinians.”

“We have not made any decision to do that at this point, but I will tell you that I am very concerned that there are as many as 1.5 million people in Rafah who for the most part are people who have been displaced because they fled their homes, thinking they would be in a place of safety,” she said.

“I’m very concerned about where they would go and what they would do.”
