California senator and former Montreal high-schooler Kamala Harris has declared she wants to run for president of the United States in 2020.

The 54-year-old lawyer used Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the United States to declare her intention to unseat Donald Trump in her goal of becoming the first black woman to be elected president of the United States.

Harris lived in Quebec during the 1970s and 80s while attending Westmount High School. During that time, her mother, Shyamala, was a teacher at McGill University.
