Van Jones: Kamala Harris is Running For President One Way or the Other

During a weekend spot on CNN, Van Jones explained how Kamala Harris is essentially running for President one way or the other. 

The calls for Joe Biden to drop out of the race have grown louder. The President attempted to take the last week to regain his hold on the Democratic party, but that didn't really happen. Multiple Democratic lawmakers have called for him to leave the race and an interview with ABC didn't help alleviate concerns. 

Van Jones, a former adviser to President Obama, discussed Biden's issues on CNN Sunday. The pundit said of the current president, "And so I think that he's going to have to look in his heart. This is a party that loves him. I've never heard so many people say about a politician, I love this man. Not just I respect him, I just admire him. I love Joe Biden. He is beloved in this party and yet he may not be able to get across the finish line."

Jones continued

"I think people are hoping that he will recognize we're running Kamala Harris for president right now. She's -- that's who we're running. Nobody believes Joe Biden's going to be president in four years. And so we're in the worst possible world because she can't defend herself, she has to defend him. We can't defend her, we have to defend him. If we're basically running Kamala Harris anyway, let's run Kamala Harris and let her get out there and defend herself."
