(ConservativeInsider.org) – More often than not these days, the mainstream media tries to defend Democratic politicians and their decisions. However, even CNN commented on Vice President Kamala Harris’ disastrous trip to Mexico and Guatemala, noting that she drew “criticism from all sides.” It turns out, even personnel at the White House were left puzzled by Harris’ performance.
Harris traveled to Guatemala and Mexico this week to address the “root causes” of the border crisis, and she declared her trip, which promised hundreds of million dollars in aid to these nations, a “success.” However, the trip was actually full of protests from Guatemalans themselves, Harris pleading with Guatemalans not to come, and her continued denial that visiting the US-Mexico border would be of any help.
Even Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was underwhelmed by Harris’ performance:
This is disappointing to see.
First, seeking asylum at any US border is a 100% legal method of arrival.
Second, the US spent decades contributing to regime change and destabilization in Latin America. We can’t help set someone’s house on fire and then blame them for fleeing. https://t.co/vADyh5H0bw

According to CNN, the trip even left “administration officials perplexed, and the vice president’s team frustrated.” It’s clear that Harris’ first international trip was a disaster, and now, everyone can now see that. Hopefully, the VP is able to get a handle on some small part of her job sooner rather than later or more crises will pile up at her door.
