White House Undercuts Kamala After Central America Trip, Leaves Little Doubt Of Power Struggle Inside West Wing
Remember, nothing happens spontaneously in Washington DC, everything “leaked” to the press has purpose, one of those may be to curb Kamala Harris.
There is a power struggle going on inside the White House and it was revealed after Harris’ trip to Central American. Several unnamed White House “insiders” were left “perplexed” by the performance of Vice President Kamala Harris according to a CNN report.
Many on the right have speculated that Biden made Kamala border czar to slow her aspirations and make her a target of the right. Which would explain why she won’t go to the border, she’s not taking the wrap for the decisions Biden made when he took office, and being VP she really can’t create policy.
Nevertheless, Kamala took the show on the road and during her press event in Mexico sounded more like a head of state than the Vice President.
VP Harris is handling her Mexico City presser as if she’s head of state. She’s mentioned Biden’s name once. She’s mentioned herself 43 times.

Lo and behold, 12 hours later “unnamed” White House staffers tell CNN they were “perplexed” by Kamala’s trip.
CNN, reporter Jeremy diamond criticized Kamala for trying to hog the limelight.
“The Vice President saw this trip as an opportunity to burnish her foreign policy credentials after entering office with very little foreign policy experience,” Diamond opened, adding, “She also hoped to make real progress on the root causes on migration from Central America.”
“There was certainly progress, but there are now concerns that some of that progress may have been overshadowed by her answers to some of these questions that her team knew that she would be facing,” he noted. “It’s left some of the administration officials perplexed, and the vice president’s team frustrated.”
“Some administration officials are quietly perplexed about the Vice President’s answers to some questions, in particular the particular question she got from Lester Holt where she equated the question about the border with Europe. There was hope the trip would be a success, and in the end, they feel it may have been overshadowed by some of her answers to these questions,” Diamond reported.
It appears Kamala went off script and Biden’s buddies in the West Wing weren’t happy.
The clown show continues.
