Indian Origin Kamala Harris Emerges As First Woman To Get Presidential Power In United States

WASHINGTON: United States Vice President Kamala Harris became the first woman with presidential power in the US on Friday (November 19), when President Joe Biden temporarily transferred power to her.  

The US' first female, first Black and first South Asian vice president Kamala Harris broke another barrier as she became the first woman to hold presidential powers in the country. Harris worked from her office in the West Wing while Biden was under anaesthesia, according to White House Press Secretary.

"POTUS was in good spirits and at that time resumed his duties. He will remain at Walter Reed as he completes the rest of his routine physical," Jen Psaki tweeted.
