West Wing Reportedly Frustrated with VP Harris

Summary from AllSides News Team

Reports across the spectrum have detailed frustration within the White House over purported dysfunction with Vice President Kamala Harris and her team.

According to anonymous White House sources, Harris is saying that President Joe Biden is not supporting her the way he does white male politicians, and her staff is reportedly frustrated that Biden is dumping politically charged issues in her lap with little direction. West Wing aides, meanwhile, reportedly say Harris has underperformed on overseas trips and is not fulfilling her duties adequately. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki defended Harris in a tweet Sunday, calling her "a bold leader who has taken on key, important challenges facing the country."

Sources on all sides covered the apparent conflict. Right-rated sources often highlighted how Harris's approval rating hit a low of 28% last week. Many left-rated outlets highlighted Psaki's tweet.
