Vice President Kamala Harris is no longer scheduling separate meetings with international leaders as part of her new role in the Biden administration.
During her first year in office, Harris often met in meetings with world leaders apart from President Joe Biden that included photo opportunities together.
When German Chancellor Olaf Scholz visited the White House on Monday, Harris was not involved. “Likewise, when Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani, the Amir of the State of Qatar visited, Harris did not hold a separate meeting,” according to Breitbart News.

Her role will include meeting with NATO allies regarding the situation with Ukraine.
The vice president’s role is shifting but it’s unclear why or what difference it will make in her work with the Biden administration.
