Ron Klain: Kamala Harris Will Be "The Last Voice Biden Hears From Before He Makes Important Decisions"

|

Democratic operative Ron Klain joined MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell on Thursday for his first interview as Joe Biden's Chief of Staff to discuss progress in the presidential transition process, the relationship between the president-elect and vice president-elect Kamala Harris, what type of executive orders Biden plans to enact on day one, and working with Republicans.

Klain named some of the issues Biden will address in executive orders on a "very, very busy" day one: DREAM Act, Paris Climate agreement, Obamacare.

"They've had a lot of time together this week," Klain told O'Donnell. "They've been meeting together virtually every day with the senior transition team to plan on who will be in the cabinet, who will serve in high government positions and you can see already the working relationship really developing."


"She is an incredibly insightful and trusted voice already by president-elect Biden," he said. "Her views are being heard as they discuss policy matters, as they discuss the range of personnel matters. She is going to be the last person in the room. She's going to be the last voice he hears from before he makes important decisions."

"It's been impressive to see the range of experiences and perspectives she brings to this," Klain observed. "I don't think it's a surprise to anyone who saw her campaign, who has seen her as a Senator and Attorney General in California. She has been a very strong voice, a very strong force as he starts to make these decisions. she is going to be a very influential, very important vice president."
