A Florida nurse was arrested this week after authorities say she allegedly threatened to kill Vice President Harris.
A criminal complaint filed against her claims that Niviane Petit Phelps made multiple threats against Harris that were allegedly sent through a computer application to the nurse’s husband, who is in prison, NBC 6 reported.
During an interview with investigators, Phelps claimed she believes Harris “is not actually ‘Black,’ ” according to the complaint. Harris is the first Black American, the first South Asian American and the first woman elected vice president in U.S. history. Phelps is also Black.
Phelps later told investigators that at the time she was angry about Harris becoming vice president but was “over it now,” according to the complaint. She was arrested following the investigation.
