US Vice President Kamala Harris says she’s “ready to serve” following a damning special counsel report slamming Joe Biden’s age and mental acuity.
Harris was interviewed by the Wall Street Journal on Monday and asked directly if she was ready to step up as US President if necessary.
Questions surrounding Harris’s presidential capabilities have risen following Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report on Joe Biden’s mishandling of classified documents.
In the report, it stated Biden displayed “diminished faculties” during interviews and referred to him as an “elderly man with a poor memory”.
Despite growing concerns about the 81-year-old president, he is still polling better than his running mate Kamala Harris.
During the WSJ interview, Harris pointed to her time as VP as proof of her capabilities and said anyone who watches her “walks away fully aware of my capacity to lead”.
Recent NBC polls have shown the Vice-President sitting at a 28 per cent approval rating.
