Chrissy Teigen would love Kamala Harris as next US prez

Los Angeles: Supermodel Chrissy Teigen wouldn’t mind an Indian connect at the White House, come 2020. Asked to reveal her favourite candidate for next year’s presidential elections in the US, Teigen declared Kamala Harris as one of her choices.

“I love Elizabeth Warren. I also love Kamala Harris,” Teigen tells Vanity Fair in the magazine’s cover story interview for December 2019.

On his part, Legend is firmly rooting for Warren. “My favourite – I’m going to say it, we’ll break news today – is Elizabeth Warren,” soul singer Legend says in the interview, adding: “She’s the best candidate running today, and she comes at it with joy and with sincerity and with a wealth of knowledge and experience.”

Legend and Teigen have been vocal in her criticism of US President Donald Trump all along, particularly after Teigen’s nasty social media war with the President a while back.

Lawmaker Kamala Harris is a member of the Democratic Party and one of the party’s contenders for next year’s presidential elections in the United States.

Oakland-born Harris’ mother, Shyamala Gopalan, was a Tamil Indian breast-cancer scientist who immigrated to the US from Chennai. Her father, Donald Harris, is a Stanford University economics professor.
