Harris said the case against President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence is open and shut as she mentioned a lot of sectors where the current administration has created a complete mess. Earlier, Trump had refered to Biden picking Harris as his running mate as 'surprising' and called her nasty. Watch this video for all the details.
