According to new reports, the Biden-Harris White House has dealt with internal power struggles on top of the many public failures the administration has suffered.
Apparently, Kamala Harris was not pleased with Biden’s decision to name her as his ‘border czar.’ This revelation makes a lot of sense considering Harris has still not even stepped foot on the border yet in over a year as Vice President.
Reports of the terrible treatment of aides in Harris’ own office came to light months ago, but this is, to date, the most damning report of the administration’s overall relations in the White House.
Harris reportedly even divulged that Biden’s ‘white inner circle’ looks down on her.
The Daily Mail reports:
Kamala Harris wasn’t happy with Joe Biden appointing her to address the southern border crisis, wanting a more softball foreign policy assignment, and thinks the president’s ‘white inner circle’ looks down on her, according to claims made in a new book.
During an April meeting with Congressional Black Caucus leaders, Biden praised Harris and said she would do ‘a hell of a job’ handling immigration.
‘The vice president corrected him at once,’ New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns wrote in their new upcoming book This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future.
The book also explains that the first minority and female vice president felt belittled by Biden’s white staff.
‘Harris worried that Biden’s staff looked down on her; she fixated on real and perceived snubs in ways the West Wing found tedious,’ they added, according to excerpts published by Politico on Tuesday.
Biden tasked Harris with addressing immigration – and the vice president took her opportunities to share her dissatisfaction with the role.
According to the book, Harris’ aides felt that the task of addressing the southern border crisis, in any way, was politically undesirable and wanted the vice president to have a more softball foreign policy assignment – like overseeing relations with Nordic countries.
