White House denies reports of tensions between Biden, Harris

Washington, Nov 15 (UNI/Sputnik) The White House has blasted media reports claiming a rift between President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
"For anyone who needs to hear it. @VP is not only a vital partner to @POTUS but a bold leader who has taken on key, important challenges facing the country—from voting rights to addressing root causes of migration to expanding broadband," spokeswoman Jen Psaki tweeted late Sunday.
The remarks came on the heels of a CNN report of an alleged misunderstanding between America's two top officials. According to the channel, three dozen former and current Harris advisors, administration officials and others claimed that she told confidants she felt constrained about what she could do in her role.
