Harris opposes reports of tensions in the West Wing

Vice President Kamala Harris said Thursday that she does not feel undervalued speaking out against media reports of tensions between her office and the president at the White House.

“I am very, very excited about the work we have done,” Harris said in an interview with ABC’s Good Morning America. “But I am also absolutely, absolutely sure that there is still a lot to be done, and we are going to do it.”

President Joe Biden instructed Harris to address migration at the US southern border, voting rights, COVID-19 vaccinations and more. She was in France last week as part of a US effort to forge relations with America’s oldest ally in a clandestine US-British submarine deal with Australia.

Some media reports have suggested that there is tension in the West Wing over Harris’s work, and have suggested that she is feeling distant. When asked by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos if she felt “misused or underestimated,” Harris replied, “No, I don’t understand.”

The White House also denies there is any tension. “The president chose the vice president as his partner because he felt she was exactly the person you wanted to be with him to run the country,” spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters. “She is a key partner. She is a brave leader. And she is one of those who took on incredibly important tasks. “
