Democrat presidential hopeful and California Sen. Kamala Harris can’t escape her past.
The outspoken Trump-critic has blasted our president time and time again, most recently at the Democrat debate on Wednesday, where she called President Trump a “predator.”
However, court files have recently surface that reveal that Kamala Harris once accepted a $5K donation from this “predator in the White House” back in 2011 when Trump was asked to contribute to Kamala Harris’ campaign for Attorney-General.
“I made a $5,000 contribution to Ms. Harris’ campaign — the highest level of sponsorship listed in the invitation,” President Trump states in the court file.
Take a look at news of this ghost of Kamala Harris’ past that people won’t stop talking about on Twitter:
For reference, here's that aforementioned clip of Kamala Harris calling Trump a "predator":
Fox News has more details on this awkward donation:
Sen. Kamala Harris has a long record of political stances from her prosecutor days that don’t quite square with her current national profile as a liberal champion — but one of the most awkward items from her past may be her acceptance of a $5,000 donation from Donald Trump nearly a decade ago.
Now, court records reviewed by Fox News have provided additional details about the circumstances surrounding the contribution from the man she wants to unseat in 2020 and whose policies she now calls "vile."
According to sworn affidavits signed by Trump and his daughter Ivanka, disgraced former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman was behind the hefty contribution to Harris’ re-election campaign for California attorney general.
The affidavit was part of an ethics complaint against Schneiderman filed on Dec. 2, 2013, by Trump, who claimed the top prosecutor had given him the impression that his investigation into Trump University was over when it was not.
Trump argued in his sworn statement that given Schneiderman’s “persistent, unsolicited and unqualified reassurances that the investigation would never eventuate in a lawsuit, and my sincere belief that there was no wrongdoing on the part of [Trump University], I did not perceive any issue with trying to assist Mr. Schneiderman whenever I or other Trump Org. executives were able.”
He described one such case: the donation for Harris that a Schneiderman aide purportedly solicited and Ivanka helped arrange.
“Mr. Schneiderman’s former transition committee leader asked my daughter Ivanka if she would arrange for me to make a contribution to a fundraising event sponsored by Mr. Schneiderman for newly elected California Attorney General Kamala Harris,” Trump wrote.
“In response, I made a $5,000 contribution to Ms. Harris’ campaign—the highest level of sponsorship listed in the invitation—and Ivanka attended the event together with some of Trump Org.’s other top executives.”

More details have emerged about President Trump’s $5,000 donation to Sen. Kamala Harris nearly a decade ago.
Court records reviewed by Fox News show disgraced former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman solicited the contribution from Trump and his daughter Ivanka in 2011.
“Mr. Schneiderman’s former transition committee leader asked my daughter Ivanka if she would arrange for me to make a contribution to a fundraising event sponsored by Mr. Schneiderman for newly elected California Attorney General Kamala Harris,” Trump wrote in an affidavit.
“In response, I made a $5,000 contribution to Ms. Harris’ campaign — the highest level of sponsorship listed in the invitation — and Ivanka attended the event together with some of Trump Org.’s other top executives,” the sworn statement said.
The affidavit was related to an ethics complaint Trump filed in 2013 against Schneiderman. Trump claimed at the time that the prosecutor had indicated that an investigation into Trump University was complete when it was not.
