Harris says she doesn’t feel misused or underused as a vice president




“We’re doing things and we’re doing it together,” Harris told ABC in an interview aired on “Good Morning America.”

“I’m very, very excited about the work we’ve done. But I’m also absolutely clear that there’s a lot more to do and we’ll do it,” Harris said.

CNN reported Sunday that top West Wing aides have largely thrown up their hands against Harris and his staff, deciding that there is simply no time to deal with them right now, as Biden faces concerns. urgent legislative and policy measures. At the same time, many in the vice president’s circle are spreading because Harris is not properly preparing or positioning himself in his role, and the vice president herself has told several confidants that she feels limited in what she is capable of doing politically.

In Thursday’s ABC interview, Harris didn’t say if Biden had told her if she planned to run for re-election, and said she and the president “weren’t” arguing yet in 2024.

Harris also dismissed the president’s low approval ratings, saying, “The polls, up, down. But I think the most important thing is that we are consistent with what we need to do to address the issues that come our way.”

Harris also said dealing with record inflation is “one of the top priorities” for her and Biden.

“It’s real and it’s tough,” he said, citing rising food and gas prices. He highlighted the actions the administration has been taking to try to alleviate supply chain problems and reduce costs for American households.

Biden announced last month that the port of Los Angeles would switch to 24/7 service, aligning it with Long Beach Harbor operations, which were already working 24/7. Those two ports handle 40% of container traffic in the US. The administration has also taken other actions to try to alleviate problems in the country’s ports, waterways and freight networks.

“We’re seeing great results,” Harris said.

In addition to short-term actions, Harris said long-term, the administration is working to reduce the cost of living. He said the new bipartisan infrastructure law, as well as the second part of Biden’s economic agenda, a comprehensive package to expand the country’s social safety net, would help achieve that goal.
