It seems the White House is concerned about Vice President Kamala Harris’ awkward interview with NBC’s Lester Holt in Guatemala, in which he pressed her on why she has yet to visit the southern border amid a surge in migrant arrivals. In April, Harris was put in charge of the administration’s efforts to mitigate the surge, with her embarking on the Guatemala trip to work on solutions for the “root causes” of migration. CNN reports that “some administration officials” are “quietly perplexed about what they perceive as her bumpy answers to questions about whether she will go to the US-Mexico border.”
