According to a book about President Joe Biden’s first years in the Oval Office, Biden was infuriated by the influx of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border early in his administration.
In “The Fight of His Life: Inside Joe Biden’s White House” by Chris Whipple, aides of President Biden revealed that they hadn’t seen the President as angry as he was in the first six months of his Presidency because of the border crisis.
Whipple wrote that with the arrival of illegal immigrants, “Biden was furious.”
According to an excerpt from the book, reported on by The Hill, Whipple relayed that throughout the West Wing, people “could hear the president cursing [and] dropping f-bombs,” noting that Biden would “always apologize when women were present.”
A senior advisor explained that Biden’s frustration stemmed from a “lack of solutions.”
The senior advisor relayed that Biden had the “weight of the presidency” and empathized with the lack of solutions.
At that time, Biden had given the role of border czar to Vice President Kamala Harris, leading to extreme criticism of the Vice President.
Harris received severe criticism for her visit to Guatemala and Mexico in June 2021 and attacked the Vice President for her Lester Holt interview on NBC.
Holt pointed out that Harris hasn’t been to the Southern Border, the Vice President responded by saying that she hasn’t “been to Europe.”
According to Whipple, a senior advisor believed there was “definite targeting” of Harris and had “nothing to do with her assignment.”
