The White House praised Kamala Harris and gave her a vote of confidence after reports came to surface of tensions among close allies of the President.
Kamala Harris was appointed as Vice President this year, making her the first person of color to serve in that capacity. She has been given the task to lead on complex issues such as migration, voting, equality and more. Kamala Harris has stood by Biden since being sworn into office 10 months ago, taking the stage with him at major events, speeches and foreign trips.
Recently, reports came forward of mutual frustration and tensions between her and the White House inner circle, painting a negative image of her in the administration. Shortly after the release of such reports, Jen Psaki, White House press secretary responded with a tweet saying kamala is “bold leader” and is considered a valuable member of the team. Psaki said,
“There’s been a lot of reports out there and they don’t reflect his view of our experience with the vice president. The president relies on the vice president for her advice, for her counsel, not only taking issues that are challenging”
Kamala Harris and President Joe Biden appeared side by side as they confirmed the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill on Monday afternoon. She said at the White House ceremony,
“Now for this bill, as significant as it is, as historic as it is, is part 1 of 2 to lower costs and cut taxes for working families, to tackle the climate crisis at its core. Congress must also pass the Build Back Better Act. The work of building a more perfect union did not end with the railroad or the interstate and it will not end now.”
