Vice President Kamala Harris condemned an attempted attack on an FBI office and criticized supporters of Donald Trump for incendiary rhetoric that has fueled a backlash against law enforcement following a raid on the former president’s Florida home.

“I will say, as a former prosecutor, but as a citizen of our nation, any attacks on law enforcement are completely unacceptable,” Harris told reporters aboard Air Force Two on Friday. “And any so-called leader who engages in rhetoric that in any way suggests that law enforcement should be exposed to that kind of danger is irresponsible and can result in dangerous activities.”
