Vice President Kamala Harris has said she is ready for the presidency during a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, addressing concerns about President Biden’s age.

In an interview, Vice President Harris said, “I am ready to serve. There’s no question about that,” emphasizing her capability and preparedness for the highest office. She added that those familiar with her work are “fully aware” of her “capacity to lead.”

Her statement comes after special counsel Robert Hur’s report that decided not to charge President Biden over mishandling classified documents. In his report, Hur referred to President Biden as an “elderly man with a poor memory,” casting doubts on his mental acuity. President Biden, 81, countered these claims in a press conference, defending his mental fitness and memory.

Despite this, the discourse has intensified scrutiny on the age and capability of potential presidential candidates, with an ABC News/Ipsos poll revealing that 86 percent of Americans consider Biden too old for office, and 59 percent regard both Biden and his main Republican rival, former President Trump, 77, as overly aged for the role.
