Kamala Harris will tear down one of the highest glass roofs on Wednesday as she takes the oath of office as the first female vice president of the United States, blazing a trail at the very diverse White House.
As a running mate for future president Joe Biden, she has helped end Donald Trump’s tumultuous rule, beating him during his campaign for his handling of the Covid-19 epidemic, last year’s violence of racial injustice and his anti-immigrant struggles.
Harris, 56, enters a position that already reinforces a unique approach, as the first black California attorney general and the first South Asian woman to be elected to the US Senate.
As vice president, she will have a heart attack in leading America.
With Biden, 78, expected to serve only one term, Harris will win the Democratic Alliance by-election in 2024, giving him the opportunity to make history – as America’s first president.
“While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last,” Harris said in a speech on November 7, the first after U.S. networks announced that Biden and Harris would defeat Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
Trump angrily opposed the results, selling out the lie that Democrats won only because of massive electoral fraud.
During the campaign he regularly attacked Harris, calling him a “beast” after the October Vice-President’s debate with Pence. When asked about it by my reporters, Harris scolded the president: “I don’t comment on his childhood comments.”
As Harris backslides during the campaign, two months ago a conflict erupted, clinging to plans he and Biden were revealing to help struggling families and fix a struggling economy.
She wrote on Twitter that the first 100 days of Biden-Harris’ administration will focus on controlling the epidemic – ensuring that the drugs are distributed fairly and free to all.
While the job of the vice president is often seen as a ceremony, Harris will also be placed in a strong position to make the final decision in the US Senate.
As a result of the second Democratic run-off victory this month in Georgia, the Senate will be divided equally, 50 Democrats and 50 Republicans.
That means Harris could spend a lot of time on Capitol Hill acting as a legislative vote on anything from those legally promoted to Biden’s $ 1.9 trillion renewal program.
Harris was born to immigrants in the United States – his Jamaican father, his Indian mother – and their lives and personalities have certain implications for the American dream.
He was born on October 20, 1964 in Oakland, California, a civil rights movement.
His diploma from the history of Black Howard University in Washington was the beginning of a strong development that took him to the prosecutor’s office, with two names nominated as a San Francisco regional attorney and then a California attorney general in 2010.
However, Harris’ self-description as a “progressive prosecutor” has been held by critics who say he struggled to maintain false beliefs and opposed certain reforms in California, such as a bill that requires a lawyer to investigate shootings involving police.
However, Harris’ job was key to creating a platform and profile where she launched his successful US Senate campaign in 2016, becoming the second Black Women’s Manager.
His work as attorney general helped him contact Biden’s son Beau, who held a similar position in Delaware, and died of cancer in 2015.
