Swept into DC the same night as Kamala Harris and Donald Trump, Pramila Jayapal looks to the future

The congressperson reflects on the post-Trump future.

Pramila Jayapal and Kamala Harris made history on the same night in 2016, becoming the first Indian-American women elected to the House and Senate respectively.

As Vice President-elect Harris makes history again, Representative Jayapal spoke to Bill Radke about her own pushback to Donald Trump's election, the lessons that the House of Representatives can offer to the White House, and the road ahead for the American people.
