White House Stands by VP Harris Amid Criticism Over Profanity Use

Following her use of an unsuitable word in public, Vice President Kamala Harris has been backed by the White House. Karine Jean-Pierre, the press secretary for the White House, talked about how important it is to have enthusiastic people in leadership positions. She used Harris's work to support abortion access as an example. Jean-Pierre praised Harris for breaking down obstacles and said he was proud to have her as vice president. But some people are worried about the language Harris used and say it's not appropriate for her role.

Harris, who was the first vice president from a minority group, used strong words at the Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies Legislative Leadership Summit. "We need to know that people will open doors for you and leave them open sometimes," she said. If they don't, you have to kick that door down." She also told people not to let other people get in the way of their goals and dreams.

This week, which is Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islanders Heritage Month, both Harris and President Joe Biden are trying to get minority people to vote. According to a study by The New York Times and Siena College, Biden has a slight edge over former President Donald Trump among black likely voters, but they are tied among Hispanic likely voters. Trump is ahead of Biden among potential voters who say they are "other" racial or ethnic group.

At the same Asian American gathering later on Tuesday, Vice President Biden will give a speech.
