Pelosi, in an interview was asked about Harris history making moment on Wednesday night, when she became the first Black and Indian-American woman to accept a major party’s vice presidential nomination. Pelosi laughes at her as a personification of the American dream, and a great guardian of our Constitution, she implied that Harris, 55 may not wield much power as vice president.
Nancy Pelosi, is the first and only women to have served as House speaker Representatives, making her the most powerful elected woman in the country. She held the position from 2007 to 2011 and was elected to the position again in 2019 after Democrats reclaimed control of the House . She on Thursday suggested that she will still be the most powerful elected woman in US politics even if California Sen. Kamala Harris is elected vice president in November.
In 2019. Harris came to defense of Pelosi after New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused the speaker of the persistent singling out of newly elected women of color. In an interview with, a New York based radio show, the Breakfast Club, Harris said, “that’s not my experience with Nancy Pelosi, I have known her to be very respectful of women of color and very supportive of them.”
In March, Pelosi said “my disappointment is that every time I am introduced as the most powerful woman in American history, it breaks my heart because I think we should have a president.”
Pelosi, spoke to the democratic National Convention, during that time she pointed Trump as an enemy of women, she said , she has witnessed Trump disrespecting for facts, working families and for women in particular. But we know what he does not, that when women succeed, America succeeds.
Pelosi said, “Well I am not sure how powerful the VP is. But nonetheless.. no, that will depend on the president and I am sure that Joe Biden will extend to Kamala Harris the same strength that President Obama extended to him. but that is all derivative from the president of the US. So I am hoping that, that will be the case and I can just do my job as speaker and enjoy the thought that there is a VP who is a woman, a woman of color.”
