Washington, United States:
The White House confirmed Thursday that Kamala Harris’s chief spokesperson will step down at the end of the year, as the vice president goes through a period of political turmoil.
Confirming press reports, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said there had been an announcement “about the departure of Symone Sanders” and noted that “she will always be part of that family. Biden-Harris, and it’s only natural after a few years to be ready for something new. “
“Working in the first year of a White House is exciting and rewarding, but it’s also exhausting and exhausting,” Psaki said. “It’s all of these things at once.”
She added that such departures were “also an opportunity, as is the case in any White House, to bring in new faces, new voices and new perspectives.”
Harris, in a hurry to leave Thursday, said, “I love Symone.”
“I can’t wait to see what she’s going to do next. I know I’ve been jumping on planes that have been flying around the country for three years,” she said.
Psaki declined to comment on media reports that Harris’ director of communications Ashley Etienne may also be leaving.
The vice-president is going through a difficult period politically, the media reporting that she is struggling to find her place in the White House while also being responsible for particularly sensitive issues such as access to the vote for minorities and the migration crisis at the border South.
His team have reportedly suffered from internal tensions and strained relations with members of President Joe Biden’s team.
In Washington, political commentators have started to speculate openly about the vice president’s political future.
Harris made history by becoming the first woman, as well as the first black and Asian person, to serve as vice president, which could in theory make her the heir to Biden, 79, when of an upcoming presidential election.
