Claim by Kamala Harris: Says “I was part of the second class to integrate Berkeley, California, public schools.”

Claim by Donald Trump: “[I]t’s an unfair agreement. … Look, if somebody attacks Japan, we go after them and we are in a battle. … If somebody should attack the United States, they don’t have to do that. That’s unfair. That’s the kind of deals we made.”
