Kamala Harris shared her reaction to Donald Trump‘s guilty verdict during her Jimmy Kimmel Live! appearance on Tuesday.

Last Thursday, Trump was convicted on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records during his hush money trial. Kimmel asked the VP how she was informed of the former president being found guilty.

“Rapidly,” the VP responded, laughing. She then explained how thorough the legal process was for Trump to be held accountable.

“A jury of 12 people, over the course of six weeks, deliberated on the evidence and facts and unanimously determined guilt [with] 34 felony counts,” she said. “There was a defense attorney who actively participated in selecting that jury, who actively made decisions about witnesses to call, witnesses to cross-examine and the jury made their decision.”

“I think the reality is cheaters don’t like getting caught and being held accountable,” she continued. “The reality is, let’s just fast-forward to November. I think the American people want to know that there is a president who believes they are accountable to the people.”

“And who’s accountable to travel overseas?,” quipped the host.

Harris also spoke about Roe v. Wade being overturned. When asked by Kimmel if it was something she ever imagined would happen in her lifetime, the VP responded, “absolutely not.”

“I was raised to understand that the rights that we fight for will not be permanent unless we are vigilant in fighting for them to continue,” she added.

Harris also lamented the Supreme Court’s decision, saying, “The thought that almost two years ago, the highest court in our land took a constitutional right from the people of America, from the women of America, and understand who is to blame.”

The VP noted that Trump “handpicked three members of the United States Supreme Court with the intention that they would undo the protections of Roe v. Wade and they did as he intended.”

She then said that following the Supreme Court’s decision, many states have passed laws that criminalize doctors and nurses for aiding in terminating pregnancy. “There is a state that provides prison for life for a doctor administering care,” she said. “State after state making no exception for rape or incest.”

Harris explained that she started out her career as a prosecutor because her best friend in high school was molested by her stepfather. “I decided at a young age I wanted to do the work of fighting to protect women and children from harm,” she said.

She also warned that during his presidency, Trump supported a national ban and announced he would sign it. “If I had to guess, if he were president again, that’s exactly what he would do,” she said.
