Kamala Harris learned a disturbing truth about Joe Biden after this major decision
The relationship between Joe Biden and Kamala Harris has fractured.
It may never recover.
And Kamala Harris learned a disturbing truth about Joe Biden after this major decision.
Kamala Harris holds a 28 percent approval rating.
Polling data shows she is the least popular Vice President in the last 50 years.
Harris’ low polling numbers owe in large part to her failure as the administration’s border czar to stop the record levels of illegal aliens from entering the country.
In a shocking article published by CNN where Biden aides all but admitted they have given up on Harris, the Vice President’s team complained that Biden set Harris up for failure.
Harris aides told CNN that Harris wanted nothing to do with the border recognizing it as a political loser.
Harris’ team was mad Biden had assigned her to handle diplomatic relations with the Northern Triangle nations, in hopes of addressing the root causes of migration to the US, but gave her no role on the southern border itself. That become the most visible crisis in the early days of Biden’s Presidency as unaccompanied minors overwhelmed federal government resources. It seemed like an all-around politically losing assignment even though Biden had seen it as a sign of respect because it was the same job Obama had given him as Vice President.
As CNN has previously reported, Harris herself has said she didn’t want to be assigned to manage the border, aware that it was a no-win political situation that would only sandbag her in the future. But Biden’s team was annoyed that Harris fumbled answers about the border, including when she gave an awkward, laughing response about not visiting it during a spring interview with NBC’s Lester Holt.
Joe Biden’s policy is open borders.
Biden wants large numbers of illegal aliens pouring into the country because Democrats believe when they pass amnesty it will create tens of millions of new voters.
Kamala Harris understands this dynamic, and Harris also understands Joe Biden doesn’t want the border crisis solved.
That’s why Kamala Harris didn’t want to be border czar.
But Biden needed to make it seem like he cared about an issue the American people view as a crisis so Biden sacrificed Harris’ political future.
