(RightWing.org) – A lot of talk has been circulating recently about Joe Biden’s competence, leading to speculation about who is actually running the nation. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) recently wondered out loud whether Kamala Harris’ transition “has already begun.”
Harris placed a solo call to Norway’s prime minister, Erna Solberg, on Tuesday, March 9. A White House readout of the call indicated she affirmed the Biden administration’s commitment to maintaining a strong alliance between the United States and Norway. She also stressed the need to work together on the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, and other global issues.
I spoke with Norway’s Prime Minister @Erna_Solberg. We discussed the need to stand together on human rights, climate, defense, development, and healthcare – especially for women and girls. @POTUS and I are grateful for Norway's friendship and commitment to our shared values. pic.twitter.com/RKYttjQnDx

Harris has spoken with several other global leaders, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and French President Emmanuel Macron.
It’s not unusual for vice presidents to play a role in foreign affairs. However, the fact that Harris has taken a leading role so early on raised concerns about whether Biden is up to the job.
Several other questions come to mind as well. If she continues to play a leading role, what does she stand for? How will other nations respond to dealing with this second in command?
