Vice President Kamala Harris is chomping at the bit, taking command of key presidential tasks, such as calling on heads of state, according to NewsMax.
Harris spoke with the President of France President Emmanuel Macron on Monday.
“Vice President Kamala Harris has begun to take calls on behalf of President Joe Biden, raising questions about his ability to do the job of president.”
“It is bizarre for a vice president to be making contact with key world leaders just weeks into a new administration.”
Harris “expressed her commitment to strengthening bilateral ties between the United States and France and to revitalizing the transatlantic alliance.”
Harris and Macron “agreed on the need for close bilateral and multilateral cooperation to address COVID-19, climate change, and support democracy at home and around the world.”
And they “discussed numerous regional challenges, including those in the Middle East and Africa, and the need to confront them together.”
Harris Tweeted, “Today I spoke with President @EmmanuelMacron of France. We discussed COVID-19, climate change, supporting democracy at home and around the world, and regional challenges. @POTUS and I look forward to working with President Macron to build a better future for our two countries.”
Harris also called on the Canadian PORime Minister Justin Trudeau.
“The prime minister congratulated the vice president on her historic election, and she recalled fondly her years spent in Montréal,” Trudeau’s office said
Biden entered the White House as the oldest president in U.S. history.
And critics are seizing on Harris’ newfound importance, particularly after former Vice President Mike Pence did not have the same authority on making calls with world leaders.
