Vice President Kamala Harris avoided a question Thursday about the Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, telling a non-profit news outlet she was concentrating on the economic recovery from the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

"I'm focused on the American Rescue plan and getting that to work," Harris told The 19th, a six-month-old start-up which takes its name from the 19th Amendment and whose goal is to "empower those we serve — particularly women, people of color, and the LGBTQ+ community."

"The Senate is going to do its job, but the bottom line for our administration, for the president and for me, we are going to do our piece right now, which is work on getting America back on its feet."

During the nearly 17-minute interview, conducted online, Harris largely spoke in generalities about the Biden administration's plans regarding the outbreak of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19, and its proposed $1.9 trillion so-called stimulus plan. Republicans have decried it as a "wish list" of Democrat and socialist proposals, including hundreds of millions for mostly Democratic state and local governments.

"People are out of work, and they are hungry, and they can't pay their bills," Harris said. "People are dying, people are sick, children are going without an education. I don't see a choice – we have to support America's working families; we have to support working people."
