(CNSNews.com) - Trump Campaign Senior Adviser Steve Cortes told “Fox News Sunday” that Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) was considered “the most liberal member of the United States Senate, even to the left of Bernie Sanders."

“I know you mentioned the GovTrack data, so it's not just my opinion. That is a data-driven model that says from the year 2019, she was the most liberal member of the United States Senate, even to the left of Bernie Sanders,” Cortes said.


He noted that not only is she against fracking, but she wants to decriminalizing illegal border crossings and favors confiscating the most popular rifle.

“I would say this about Kamala Harris when we look at her record. She seems to be an opportunist and to do whatever is most expedient of the moment for political power, but here is the reality of the Kamala Harris of 2020, the candidate right now for vice president of the United States,” Cortes said. 

“In the previous segment, you mentioned some of her extreme far left radical views, things like banning fracking, but there are more than things you listed. For example, she believes in decriminalizing crossing our border illegally. Those who would trespass into our country would no longer be sanctioned by rule of law. She is in favor of confiscating the most popular rifle in America, mandatory confiscation,” he said.

“I know you mentioned the GovTrack data, so it's not just my opinion. That is a data-driven model that says from the year 2019, she was the most liberal member of the United States Senate, even to the left of Bernie Sanders,” Cortes added.

“Her nomination in our view completes the complete radical takeover of the 2020 Democratic Party. The Democratic Party today is not your parents or your grandparents' Democratic Party. It does not represent the interest of blue-collar workers in this country, and it doesn't represent the interests of people who have traditional values in this country,” he said.
