NEW YORK, October 8. / TASS /. The campaign headquarters of US President Donald Trump recalled Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris the mistake she made when she ranked Tupac Shakur (1971-1996) among the living American rappers. This was reported on Wednesday by the New York Post with reference to the adviser to the election campaign of the American leader Jason Miller.
He joked during a conversation with reporters that he left one pass for the late rapper for the upcoming televised debate of candidates for US Vice President Michael Pence and Harris on Wednesday. "I can confirm that we still have a ticket for Tupac Shakur, who we know is Senator Harris's favorite of the surviving rappers. I don't know if he will. Personally, I prefer Biggie if he was alive. "- remarked Miller, referring to another representative of hip-hop Biggie Smalls, who, like Shakur, was shot many years ago.
In 1996, Tupac, sitting in the passenger seat of a car, was shot dead outside a hotel in the suburbs of Las Vegas, Nevada. The killers were never found. Tupac Shakur, who performed under the pseudonyms 2Pac, Makaveli and Pac, is included in the list of "100 Greatest Artists of All Time" by Rolling Stone magazine.
Harris, in an interview with CNN last month, when asked about her favorite living rapper, named Tupac Shakur. The senator quickly realized that she had unwittingly made a mistake.
Republican Michael Pence and Democrat Kamala Harris will meet on Wednesday night for a televised debate at the Kingsbury Hall at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. They will begin at 21:00 US East Coast time (04:00 Moscow time on Thursday) and will be divided into nine segments of 10 minutes.
