President Donald Trump criticized Democrats for claiming the country is in a "constitutional crisis" Sunday night, saying the real crisis is Democrats refusing to work with him on issues like the border. What we're at a loss is people in Congress have the courage to do something.

If she becomes president, however, she won't wait for Congress to take action.

When asked about her perception by the left as a "cop", Harris said that she would "never apologize" for cracking down on violent crimes but: "I am also acutely aware that we have a criminal justice system in America that is deeply flawed, has often by informed by bias and is in need of severe reform".

"No, that's not what I meant, I know it was interpreted that way", she said.

Harris said the executive action would include requiring anyone who sells more than five guns a year to perform background checks and directing the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) "to remove and take away the licenses of gun dealers who fail to follow the law".

"I think that Facebook has experienced massive growth, and has prioritised its growth over the best interests of its consumers-especially on the issue of privacy", Harris told CNN's Jake Tapper. "There is no question in my mind that there needs to be serious regulation".

Harris said that Facebook's role in modern life makes the company "essentially a utility that has gone unregulated".

The legislation also entitles all residents of the United States to health care services.

California Senator Kamala Harris, one of the (innumerable) Democrats eyeing the White House in a 2020 presidential bid, has joined MA senator and fellow candidate Elizabeth Warren in calling for antitrust authorities to look at a possible breakup of Facebook.

Warren and another senator seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, Amy Klobuchar, have proposed plans to increase antitrust scrutiny of the technology sector, with Warren vowing to break up Facebook, Amazon.com Inc and Alphabet Inc's Google if elected. But the divisive nature of identity politics exists on both the left and right, he said, and can help drive people apart.
