Solo un giorno dopo la sparatoria di massa che ha provocato sette morti e oltre 30 ferito, Harris ha visitato il sobborgo settentrionale di Chicago per incontrare le forze dell'ordine locali.
Ha fatto brevi osservazioni alla città in lutto.
“We’ve got to take this stuff seriously, as seriously as you are because you have been forced to take this seriously,” Harris said to the press and Highland Park residents.
“The whole nation should understand and have a level of empathy to understand that this could happen anywhere [per] any people in any community. And we should stand together and speak out about why it’s got to stop,” Harris added before stepping away.
