During an interview with CBS News’ Face the Nation over the weekend, Vice President Kamala Harris was asked about former President Donald Trump —specifically if she’s taking him seriously enough.
CBS host Margaret Brennan asked Harris point blank if she was “taking the threat of a Donald Trump presidency” seriously enough.
Harris looked taken aback, pausing before responding, “I don’t understand the question.”
“You were dismissive of some of the Republican criticism of you and the president. When you look at current polling, the frontrunner for the Republican nomination is the former president, the 45th president,” Brennan added.
From Fox News:
Harris insisted that President Biden and her would win re-election, adding that there is “too much at stake.”
“The American people know it,” Harris said.
Brennan also asked the vice president if she was prepared to be president as a majority of voters are concerned about Biden’s age.
“Yes, I am. If necessary. But Joe Biden is going to be fine. Let me tell you something. I work with Joe Biden every day. Under Joe Biden’s leadership, we have transformed and are in the process of transforming America’s infrastructure… I could go on and on,” Harris said.
