Harris was the first woman to serve as President of the United States in history.
These developments come one day before Biden completes 79 years of age, amid widespread concern about his health ability to complete his presidential term that extends until 2024.
Biden will be the first US president to reach the age of 79 while he is in office. Despite that, the Democratic president announced his intention to run for a second term, but his advanced age raises speculation that he may back down from this idea.
But Joe Biden would be 86 at the end of his second term if elected, while potential successors and their supporters say four more years would be an exaggeration in his already rich political resume.
Only forty percent of Americans surveyed in a recent Politico/Morning Consult poll said they saw the Democratic president as “in good health,” compared to fifty percent who thought the opposite.
This is a radical change, as the percentage was 53 percent, compared to 34 percent one year ago. If health problems arise, “his plans could change,” said David Greenberg, professor of journalism and history at Rutger University in New Jersey.
“This would open up a very wide field where many candidates (from the 2020 Democratic primaries) could emerge as well as others who were not candidates,” he added.
Camilla Harris, who made history by becoming the first woman and the first black and Asian person to serve as Vice President, is a sure-fire heiress.
But her image was recently damaged by press reports that spoke of a defect in the work of her team and her frustration with the difficult tasks assigned to it.
On Thursday, ABC responded that she and her team were “moving things forward and doing it together.”
In response to a question about Joe Biden’s intentions, she said she did not discuss them with him “at all.” It is relatively common for vice presidents to be assigned difficult tasks.
But Harris, whose popularity has slumped to just 35.6 percent of positive reviews, inherited a position with a complex task between responding to Republican attacks on the right to vote and managing the immigration crisis at the border with Mexico.
It has faced criticism from the opposition, which accuses its administration of not being able to stem the flow of immigrants from Latin America, and it has struggled to justify that it did not go until early June to the border that it eventually inspected on June 25. “I haven’t been to Europe either… I don’t understand what you’re trying to say… I’m not ignorant of the importance of borders,” she told reporters during a trip to Guatemala.
