Maybe all that speculation that former vice president Joe Biden intends to step aside if elected to allow Kamala Harris to become the first black female American president isn’t a conspiracy after all.
While speaking at a campaign event in Tampa, Florida on Tuesday, the former vice president attempted to make an appeal to veterans and offered a glimpse of what they should expect with him in the White House.
“It makes it so much harder for military spouses to find good jobs and build their careers. That has to change,” Biden said. “A Harris-Biden administration is going to relaunch that effort and keep pushing further to make it easier for military spouses and veterans to find meaningful careers to ensure teachers know how to support military children in their classrooms and to improve support for caregivers and survivors so much more than we do now.”

The alleged “slip up” came just one day after Harris made a similar comment during a virtual roundtable with a group of Arizona small business owners.
“A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States,” the California senator said before quickly clarifying, “The Biden-Harris administration will provide access to $100 billion in low-interest loans and investments from minority business owners.”
In April of this year, the former vice president told James Corden in an appearance on “The Late, Late Show,” that “the first and most important quality” in a running mate is “someone who, if I walked away immediately from the office, for whatever reason, they could be president.”

Conservatives have voiced speculation for months that Biden is nothing more than a “Trojan Horse for the radical left” and that the former vice president is serving as a “placeholder” until Harris is sworn in as president.
