Many people know Senator Amy Klobuchar as a Senator from Minnesota. What does she stand on the issues for Americans? Does she have a plan? Is she going to make any improvements? What is her record?

She locked up parents for kids truancy. "She also pushed for more prosecutions related to school truancy. Similar efforts by Harris when she was district attorney have drawn criticism from progressives. Reformers argue this kind of policy unnecessarily involves the criminal justice system in yet another aspect of American life, and that the criminal justice system can lead to more harm than help in this area — locking up parents and kids for issues that are more about poverty and public health than criminal wrongdoing".

She "endorsed Michael O. Freeman for Hennepin county attorney in 2018the same prosecutor who victim-blamed Jamar Clark for his murder by police officers and nostalgically said on air that Minneapolis was a “simpler society” before the Black people moved in. Freeman narrowly defeated candidate Mark Haase, who ran on criminal justice reform".

Senator Elizabeth Warren can not even work with people of color while running for President. According to multiple news agencies

"six minority women have quit Warren’s Nevada campaign due to a perceived toxic work environment. Former field organizer Megan Lewis said there was something “wrong with the culture” and that she “filed a complaint with HR, but the follow-up I received left me feeling as though I needed to make myself smaller or change who I was to fit into the office culture"."

 Questions I have now :

1- How is she going to help minorities as President when she allowed this culture in her campaign (the tone is always set at the top)?

2-How are you going to run a country when you can not even run your own campaign to be inclusive?

3- Why has she not been primaried for her Senate seat?

This is the same candidate who lied about her ethnicity to get a job at Harvard Law School, who plagiarized a  dish to get credit for something she did not even make, who lied about leaving her first job, who is claiming to be  Native American because she had "high cheekbones" (which is offensive), she lied about Senator  Bernie Sanders, and she states what she assumes voters, woman with a plan, but no credible way of paying for any of her ideas without increasing tax on the middle class.
