During a CBS interview with host Margaret Brennan, Vice President Kamala Harris seemed momentarily perplexed when asked if she was adequately addressing the potential of another Donald Trump tenure as president.

Upon hearing the question, Harris paused briefly, stating, “I’m not sure what you’re asking.”

Brennan clarified, “You’ve brushed off some of the criticisms from the Republicans regarding you and the president. Given current polls, it seems the former, 45th president, is leading the race for the Republican nomination.”

The Vice President affirmed her belief that she and President Biden would secure another term, emphasizing the significance of the moment. “The citizens of this country are aware of the gravity,” Harris commented.

Additionally, Brennan inquired if Harris was ready to take on the role of the president, referencing concerns about Biden’s age among voters.

Harris responded, “I’m fully prepared if the situation calls for it. However, I firmly believe Joe Biden is in good health. I interact with him daily. Under his guidance, significant changes have been made to the country’s infrastructure, among other things.”

Brennan also touched upon the topic of abortion, questioning Harris about the administration’s stance on when abortion access should be limited.

In reply, Harris emphasized the administration’s commitment to upholding the principles of Roe v. Wade. “Our objective is clear,” Harris asserted, “to reinstate the provisions originally laid out in Roe v. Wade. Since the Supreme Court’s decision, it’s been within Congress’s purview to legislate these protections, and President Biden is ready to endorse such a bill.”
