Wallace on Border Crisis: VP Harris ‘Knows This Is a Mess and Doesn’t Want Her Fingerprints on It’
WALLACE: "Well, I don’t know about priorities, but it doesn’t seem that they have much of an answer to the crisis at the border. Maybe that’s the reason that they are not pushing it. And you know, it’s so interesting, because when the President first said that he was putting Kamala Harris, his vice president, in charge of the border, the sense was that he was putting her in charge of the border, the whole issue. And then a day or so later, the clarification came, well, no, she is not in charge of the border, she is in charge of diplomacy with Mexico and with the northern triangle countries to try to stem the flow to the border. She has had a couple of phone calls with top officials in those countries, but she hasn’t gone to the border and she hasn’t gone to the northern triangle and she hasn’t gone to Mexico, which kind of makes you wonder whether she knows this is a mess and doesn’t want her fingerprints on it."
