Vice President Kamala Harris said she would inform the American people if there was a problem with President Biden but emphasized that no such need exists.
She defended their administration’s work and suggested that the track record of accomplishment under President Biden supports his ability to do the work.
“Of course, if necessary, but there’s no need for that,” she said. (Trending: Biden Shamefully Removes God From National Address)

“I don’t, there is a political argument that is being made. That is not based on substance, and you’re asking me to hypothesize around what are my duties to the American people, as vice president of the United States, that are based on ethics and morals and the law.”
“I will always follow those rules, but I am suggesting to you that it is important we not be seduced into one of the only arguments that that side of the aisle has right now,” she added.
“Look at the track record of accomplishment under this president on infrastructure alone.”
Harris also dismissed concerns about Biden’s age, stating that he is authoritative and capable.
“Many historians would argue [that] not since Eisenhower have we seen that kind of investment in America and the creation of American jobs, not to mention recovering from an historic, economic decline because of the pandemic,” she added.
“One person makes the decisions ultimately on all these big issues and many that are less known, and that is the president, and in our case that is Joe Biden.”
“He has proven himself to be able to do the work that I do believe the American people want.”
“First off, I would say that age is more than a chronological fact. I spent a whole lot of time with our president be it in the Oval Office or the Situation Room and in other places, and I can tell you, as I just mentioned, not only is he absolutely authoritative in rooms around the globe, but in the Oval Office,” she said.
The statements come as voters, media pundits, and Democrats express concern over the president’s age.
“I don’t think Biden and Vice President Harris should run for re-election,” columnist David Ignatius wrote.
“It’s painful to say that, given my admiration for much of what they have accomplished. But if he and Harris campaign together in 2024, I think Biden risks undoing his greatest achievement — which was stopping [former President] Trump.”
