President Biden’s Press Secretary Jen Psaki was caught off guard and struggled to give an answer when reporters asked about Biden’s relationship with his vice president after a report claimed the two had reached a stalemate.
The Daily Wire reports:
When asked if Harris would get President Joe Biden’s “automatic endorsement if she decides to run herself in either 2024 or 2028,” Psaki responded, “I don’t have any predictions of whether she will run, when she will run; I will leave that to her.”
“But I can tell you that there’s been a lot of reports out there, and they don’t reflect his view or our experience with the Vice President,” Psaki claimed.
When asked if they’ve heard that Harris or her team are “unhappy,” Psaki deflected, saying, “Here’s what I know, Peter: I know that the President relies on the Vice President for her advice, for her counsel.”
“She’s somebody who is not only taking on issues that are challenging. She’s not looking for a cushy role here — no Vice President is, no President is — and that she’s somebody that is a valuable member of the team,” Psaki continued. “And he expects to also — you can all expect to be out there, out in the country — on the infrastructure bill, and he’s looking forward to having her out there too.”
