Vice President Harris criticized former President Trump’s rhetoric on Tuesday following his social media post featuring a video that mentioned a “unified Reich.”

Speaking at the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Harris emphasized that the video underscores the critical issues at play in the upcoming November election.

“This kind of rhetoric is unsurprising coming from the former president and it is appalling,” she said. “And we’ve got to tell him who we are. And once again, it shows our freedoms and our very democracy are at stake.”

When asked for a response to the video on Tuesday, President Biden told reporters, “It would take too long.” Trump had posted the video on his Truth Social page Monday night, featuring hypothetical headlines about his potential victory in November, including one referencing a “unified Reich.” The video, not created by the Trump campaign, was removed Tuesday morning.

Earlier on Tuesday, the White House condemned Trump for sharing the video, labeling it “dangerous and offensive.” Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre informed reporters that they would hear from Biden directly later in the day. The president has two campaign receptions scheduled in Boston for the evening.

Furthermore, the Biden campaign said in reaction to the video that Trump “is telling America exactly what he intends to do if he regains power: rule as a dictator over a ‘unified Reich.’”

Last week, Shine My Crown reported that Harris would debate Donald Trump’s vice presidential pick this summer, a spokesperson from the Biden campaign confirmed Thursday.

Trump has suggested he might wait until the Republican National Convention in July to announce his running mate.

Harris’ team informed CBS that she is available to debate in-studio on either Tuesday, July 23, or Tuesday, August 13, and encouraged the Trump campaign to select one of these dates. The Trump campaign has not yet responded to the debate invitation.
