Vice President Kamala Harris answered questions – again – about donors’ concerns over President Joe Biden’s age, Business Insider reports.
“I hear from a lot of different people a lot of different things. But let me just tell you, I’m focused on the job. I truly am.”
“I think the best way to make the judgment is to watch me. Am I slowing up? Am I going at the same pace?”
The first female vice president of the United States shared the same sentiments, telling Whitaker that the right choice is clear, regardless of age.
“Our democracy is on the line, Bill. And I frankly, in my head, do not have time for parlor games when we have a president who is running for reelection,” Harris said. “When the American people are able to take a close look, at election time, on their options, I think the choice is gonna be clear. Bill, we’re gonna win.”
While Harris continues to be optimistic, the polls show a different story. Whitaker pointed out that only 41% of adults give Harris a stamp of approval regarding her work as second-in-command, according to Fox News. The Biden-Harris campaign is up for the fight against Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN), who recently announced he wants to challenge Biden in the primaries, hoping the party will “pass the torch” to the new generation.
