Kamala Harris’ entourage complains that she is being put aside or misused in the files entrusted to her.

The elephant in the room: the 2024 presidential election
Kamala Harris’ main communications advisor, Symone Sanders, from Joe Biden’s entourage will step down at the end of the year. She’s not the first to go. The elephant in the room is obviously the next presidential election in 2024 and the possibility for Kamala Harris to be a candidate again.
Joe Biden, who does not intend to be weakened by the end of his term, says he intends to run for another. And observers did not fail to note that another potential candidate – the Minister of Transport Pete Buttegieg – was increasingly put forward in the communication of the administration. Officially, he and Kamala Harris get along very well and their respective husbands too. But as Pete Buttegieg pointed out, it’s only 2021.
