Who Is Running the Country?
Questions surrounding who is actually running the country these days continue to mount after the details of an interesting phone call emerged. While President Joe Biden was busy participating in a conference call with NASA this week, Vice President Kamala Harris was conducting the real business of the country.
Harris Chats With Israeli Prime Minister
One of those duties this week happened when Harris hosted a call with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel. During the call, both leaders discussed what their two countries could do to work together to fight the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Israel is leading the world in vaccinating its citizens, providing a framework that the U.S. and other countries can follow.
In addition, Harris took the time to commit to guarding the security of Israel on the global stage. This included discussions about the nuclear powers of Iran.
Harris Doing the Dirty Work
Prior to the call with Netanyahu, Harris also spoke with French President Emmanuel Macron as well as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Biden was too busy hanging out at Camp David playing video games with his grandkids during his time away from the Oval Office. It is clear that Harris is already the one in charge of the foreign policy of the United States.
For months leading up to the election of Biden, his opponents had been worried that he would only be the puppet president for Harris. As Harris continues to conduct the important business of the country, these fears do seem to be coming true.
