Vice President Kamala Harris went on CNN Sunday to praise President Joe Biden, claiming he was “extraordinarily courageous.”
“President Biden has always said that he wanted you to be the last person in the room, especially for big decisions, just like he was for President Obama,” said hostess Dana Bash. “He just made a really big decision, Afghanistan. Were you the last person in the room “
“Yes,” replied Harris, to which Bash said, “and you are fine?”

“This is a president who is extremely courageous,” replied Harris. “He’s someone I’ve seen over and over again who makes decisions based on what he really believes, based on his years of work and studying these subjects. What he really believes is the right thing.”
“I’ll tell you something about him,” she continued. “He is very aware that it may not be politically popular or beneficial to him personally. It is really something to see. I wish the American public could see what I see sometimes because ultimately and the decision is always his, but I’ve seen him keep making decisions based on exactly what he thinks is right, regardless of that what the political people may say he is in his best selfless interest. “

In the same interview, Harris said that the Biden administration “needs to make people feel hopeful” as it addresses the reasons for the surge in migrants on the US-Mexico border.
“I come to this from the perspective that most people don’t want to leave the house,” she said. “You don’t want to leave your grandparents. They don’t want to leave the place where they grew up when they speak the language, where they know the culture, the place where they are at home. Most people don’t want to leave their home, and when they do it is usually for one of two reasons. “

“They are fleeing harm or they cannot stay and meet the basic needs of life, such as feeding their children and a roof over their heads,” Harris continued. “That’s a big part of what’s going on. So I consider the question of what is going on in the Northern Triangle from this perspective. Then I assume we need to understand that we need to give people a sense of hope that if they stay, that help is on the way. “

“The kind of work that needs to be done is the diplomatic work that we have been dealing with, including my calls to the President of Mexico, the President of Guatemala, and we plan to have another meeting soon,” she concluded . “This is the work we do, but it won’t be done overnight. It’s a complex subject. If that were easy, it would have been handled years ago. “
