CNN Just Issued A Warning To Kamala Harris

Vice President Kamala Harris made her first foreign trip to Guatemala and Mexico to address the migrant crisis in the United States, but her visit was apparently unsuccessful, according to the Daily Mail.

Univision anchor Ilia Calderón reportedly asked Harris multiple times when she would visit the border, but she fumbled her answer. "I've said I'm going to the border," Harris said. "And also if we are going to deal with the problems at the border, we have to deal with the problems that cause people to go to the border, to flee to the border. So my first trip as vice president of the United States was to go — in terms of a foreign trip — to Guatemala, to be on the ground there to address and to be informed of the root causes why are the people of Guatemala leaving."

Calderón was not satisfied and continued to press Harris: "Do you have a date for your trip to the border?" she asked. Harris responded with, "I will keep you posted."

Harris is now under fire at CNN. Keep reading for more details.

CNN is not pleased with Kamala Harris

Vice President Kamala Harris received backlash from CNN during an interview with Lester Holt when he asked about her absence at the southern border. She has yet to visit the area, per Fox News.

"At some point, you know, we are going to the border. We've been to the border," Harris said. "So this whole, this whole, this whole thing about the border. We've been to the border. We've been to the border." Holt replied, "You haven't been to the border." Harris then retorted, "And I haven't been to Europe. I don't understand the point that you're making."

CNN anchor Abby Phillip took her to task and said, "It's just a little cringeworthy, and I know that her allies in the White House and elsewhere are watching it and just kind of wondering what is going on." Although Harris went to Guatemala and Mexico to understand why migrants were leaving, her interview was reportedly a flop. "It didn't go the way the White House wanted it to go," CNN's Laura Barron-Lopez noted. "Again, immigration, as you mention, is a hot potato no one wants to touch, and Harris has been dealt it and so she has to handle now what Biden had to handle when he was VP which is relationships with the northern triangle."

It appears Harris ruffled a few feathers with her answers. "To be clear, she was going to be asked this question. And the fact that they didn't have something better than 'I haven't been to Europe' is fairly notable," another CNN source added.

Kamala Harris underwent media training before her trip

Although Kamala Harris has received criticism for her visits to Guatemala and Mexico, CNN reports the vice president underwent media training to "improve her delivery and presentation in interviews and speeches."

A senior aide remained coy on details, but said it was a "comprehensive session" and not in response or preparation for a topic like the migrant crisis at the border. Harris' friend opened up about how the vice president acts in front of the camera: "We've seen this before. Harris is criticized by her detractors, sometimes fairly and usually unfairly. And her instinct is to dig in, which in most instances only makes the situation worse."

Even though Harris spent a lot of time preparing for his trip, it seems she and her team still have a lot of work to do. She was even prepped for the question about visiting the border, but she still couldn't give a clear answer. A former aide seemed concerned with Harris' performance and said, "Watching Kamala Harris walk this weird tightrope on the border gives me flashbacks of her not having an answer for 'Medicare for All' or her position on bussing. There's only so much staff can do to prepare her. At some point she has to stop being scared of herself."

Did Kamala Harris ruin her chances at running for president?

Republican Texas governor Rick Perry had some words for Vice President Kamala Harris after her trip to Guatemala and Mexico, calling her "finished," according to Fox Business.

He lit into her "lack of professionalism and leadership" after her alleged flop of a trip. "She is finished," he told the outlet. "The fact is that Americans are seeing across the board that this person is not ready for primetime from the standpoint of being able to be a leader that impresses any confidence that she has the ability to lead, to do what's right for America," he continued.

Moreover, the trip is also casting doubts on a possible run for president in 2024, according to Axios. Foreign trips and taking the lead on the migrant crisis should put her in the best position for a future election, but it seems like her trip may have ruined those chances. Although the vice president usually deals with difficult assignments to keep the president in a "positive light," a former aide said the criticism towards Harris can't be ignored. "If you give someone a s****y assignment because the president doesn't want to do it himself, you can't be mad when the treacherous situation looks treacherous," they said.
