Fact Check: Did Kamala Harris Threaten Trump Supporters?

Prosecutor-turned-politician Kamala Devi Harris has been nominated by Joe Biden as his running mate as the Vice President of the U.S. If won, she will be the first Black woman and the first person of Indian descent to be chosen for national office by a major party.

In light of this, a quoted attributed to Harris is doing the rounds on social media.

"And once Trump's gone and we have regained our rightful place in the White House, look out if you supported him and endorsed his actions, because we'll be coming for you next. You will feel the vengeance of a nation. No stone will be left unturned as we seek you out in every corner of this great nation. For it is you who have betrayed us," reads the quote.

Some of these posts also mention "she really said this."

Claim:

Kamala Harris threatened supporters of US President Donald Trump.

Fact Check:

The claim is false.

When we searched about this, we found the quote in an article published in a satirical website called 'BustaTroll.org'. It was published in August, 2019 and carries the byline "Fired Writer.".

The byline also mentions that it is a satire/Fanfiction.


"Everything on this website is fiction. It is not a lie and it is not fake news because it is not real. If you believe that it is real, you should have your head examined. Any similarities between this site's pure fantasy and actual people, places, and events are purely coincidental and all images should be considered altered and satirical. See above if you're still having an issue with that satire thing," the website writes on its About section.


Further, the quote was fabricated in the backdrop of Trump's impending impeachment and is unrelated to Kamala's recent VP candidature.

It is evident that this is a classic case of satire is being propagated as a piece of news.
