Vice President-elect Kamala Harris said Thursday that last week's assault on the U.S. Capitol reminded her of the 2017 "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Va.

In an interview on NPR, the former Democratic California senator said photographs of rioters carrying the Confederate flag and wearing "Camp Auschwitz" hoodies reminded her of images taken during the white nationalist demonstrations that eventually turned deadly. 

"It was the same thing that went through my mind when I saw Charlottesville," said Harris. "I mean, it's the same thing that went through my mind when I saw a picture of Emmett Till."
