Are Joe Biden and Kamala Harris arguing already? President-elect jokes he'll 'develop some disease' and resign
In a recent interview, Biden said, 'If I reach something where there's a fundamental disagreement we have based on a moral principle, I'll develop some disease and say I have to resign'
Are President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris the perfect duo to run the country? Or like any other partnership do they also have their own set of differences? On Thursday, December 4, Biden was heard saying that if he was ever to have a disagreement with Harris, he will "develop some disease" and resign.
In a recent interview with CNN, he said, "Like I told Barack, if I reach something where there's a fundamental disagreement we have based on a moral principle, I'll develop some disease and say I have to resign."
Biden became President-elect a month ago after defeating President Donald Trump is an intense battle. Kamala Harris became the first Indian-origin, woman vice president-elect of the United States. And while their collective victory might have made history, many Republicans are unhappy with the result and are even crying fraud. The ultimate question is will this partnership will be a boon for the country?
"Our philosophy of government is simpatico on how we want to approach these issues that we're facing... and when we disagree, it will be just like — so far it has been just like when Barack and I did," Biden said in the interview. "And when we disagree, we just – so far it's been just like when Barack [Obama] and I did — it's in private. She'll say 'I think we should do A,B,C, or D.' And I'll say 'I like A, I don't like B and C' - and just go 'okay.' But like I told Barack [Obama]: If I reach something where there's a fundamental disagreement that we have based on a moral principle, I'll develop some disease and say I have to resign."
Harris merely nodded quietly with a smile. However, Biden explained, "Look, there's not a single decision I've made yet about personnel or about how to proceed that I haven't discussed with Kamala first," he said.
Jokes apart, Harris jumped straight to business taking the mike and spelling out what her rapport with the President-elect is. "We are full partners in this process. And I will tell you that the President-elect has been — since the first day he asked me to join him on the ticket — very clear with me that he wants me to be the first and the last in the room," she said in the interview with host Jake Tapper, who she sat at least 12 feet away.
"And so, on every issue that impacts the American people, I will be a full partner to the President-elect and the President. And whatever our priorities are, I will be there to support him and support the American people," she added.
Biden might have been joking but his critics, right-wing trolls and Donald Trump supporters jumped at the opportunity. Fox Nation host Lawrence Jones told 'Fox and Friends' "This is why he doesn't do interviews because he is so incoherent," said, adding, "This is why they kept him in the basement for the majority of the campaign. She [Harris] disagrees with him on virtually every single issue."
