WASHINGTON — Vice President Kamala Harris, after weeks of pressure from her political opponents, will visit the U.S.-Mexico border Friday, as part of her role addressing the root causes of migration. "[Harris' trip to the border] is really about building on the work that she has been doing. Republicans criticized Harris' decision to visit El Paso rather than other parts of the state like, the Rio Grande Valley, which see significantly more border crossings. Although partisan politics are likely to hang over Harris' trip Friday, she will also be forced to confront major policy issues. Rohini Kosoglu, domestic policy adviser to the vice president and one of Harris' longest serving aides, said that Harris "has spent her career fighting for immigrants."

WASHINGTON — The Biden administration said Thursday that it would extend the temporary bans on evictions and foreclosures for another month as the country continues to rebound from the coronavirus pandemic. The White House and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which issued the extension to the eviction ban, made clear that July would be the "final" month of the benefit. The agencies will make an additional announcement in July "to offer borrowers payment reduction options that will enable more homeowners to stay in their homes," the White House said. The White House said the Treasury Department would work with states to help them rapidly distribute the money and would issue new guidelines making clear that the money could be used to avoid eviction. Biden, shortly after taking office in January, extended the moratorium through the end of March and again extended it through June.

WASHINGTON — A federal judge in Florida halted the Biden administration’s new debt relief program for minority farmers on Wednesday. Howard ordered the Agriculture Department not to issue payments under the program for "socially disadvantaged" farmers until she can rule on the merits of the case. She wrote that the program, which is embedded in President Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan law, is "significantly likely" to violate the constitutional rights of the plaintiff, a white farmer named Scott Wynn. Several white farmers have filed suit in cases across the country, at least one of which is backed by America First Legal, a group founded by former Trump White House aides. Howard implored the plaintiffs' lawyers and the Justice Department to move swiftly so that a more permanent ruling can be made quickly.

June 24 (Reuters) - Getting Americans fully back to work, with wages rising, should be the main economic focus of the day, White House economic adviser Heather Boushey said on Thursday, adding that the Biden administration’s spending plans would not overheat the economy. “I am first and foremost mostly concerned about getting us to full employment and making sure Americans have good jobs, and that we are delivering on that promise of a strong and stable middle class,” Boushey said at a virtual event put on by Politico’s Women Rule. “Certainly, out of control inflation gets in the way of that but.. the economic data points in the direction that these (higher prices) are going to be temporary.”

CHICAGO — Doug Emhoff said in his first one-on-one interview as second gentleman that Vice President Kamala Harris has likely been treated differently because she is a woman of color and defended Harris from Republican criticism on her role addressing the root causes of migration. Emhoff shrugged off suggestions that Harris' decision to go to the border now was motivated in part by the former president. "I'm only in this role because the country elected the first woman vice president and that happens to be my wife, Kamala Harris. "Kamala Harris has had a long history with the Jewish community, not just because she married me. As for whether he and Harris have discussed a second presidential run, Emhoff said they are "not talking about that."

Buffett Weighs In on Tax-Free Philanthropy

Buffett says that philanthropy can be a powerful tax shield, if donors want it to be. Buffett’s donations, he said yesterday, resulted in only 40 cents in tax savings per $1,000 given. Buffett has criticized “huge dynastic wealth,” and his arguments for higher taxes on the wealthy led to the so-called Buffett Rule, a proposed minimum tax on millionaires and billionaires. Should the tax treatment of philanthropy change? The antivirus software pioneer, 75, died after a Spanish court said he could be extradited to the U.S. on tax-evasion charges.

The White House had no plans in place to swear in Pence, if needed, during Trump's bout with COVID-19. Trump, who became sick with COVID-19 in October 2020, was a very high-risk patient. And as Abultaeb and Paletta previously reported and documented in the book excerpt, Trump's condition was far more serious than the White House let on at the time. A president can also temporarily transfer the powers of the presidency to the vice president under Section 3 of the 25th Amendment — George W. Bush briefly handed over the reins to his vice president, Dick Cheney, when he went under anesthesia for colonoscopies under his presidency, for example. After being treated with multiple anti-viral therapeutic drugs and steroids during a short stay at Walter Reed Medical Center, Trump returned to the White House and recovered.

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows was "consumed with fear" that Trump would die from COVID. The White House was wholly caught off guard and unprepared for a COVID outbreak in October. The behind-the-scenes panic over Trump's illness is documented in the book "Nightmare Scenario." Despite flouting COVID protocols like mask-wearing and social distancing for months, the White House was fully caught off guard by the COVID-19 outbreak that swept through the complex in October, infecting both Trump and First Lady Melania Trump. At Walter Reed Medical Center, Trump received multiple drug therapies not available to most of the American public, and steroids that helped him recover from COVID-19.

White House negotiators and a group of senators struck a deal on a bipartisan infrastructure agreement on Thursday that will likely slash measures to combat climate change and help the U.S. transition to a clean-energy economy. The second package could also include programs related to child and elder care, education, and health care, in addition to climate change measures, issues that administration officials have called "human infrastructure." The prospect of massing major climate legislation through Congress was a longshot from the beginning, but Democrats had been fighting to keep the president's climate measures in a bipartisan bill. Markey, in a statement to CNBC earlier this month, said that any proposal that fails to address and invest in climate change mitigation "is in denial." "If we are not seizing this moment to get our emissions and our clean economy on track, we must reject this deal and work in good faith on a real climate infrastructure package," Markey said.

"The data couldn't be clearer, if you're vaccinated, you're safe," Biden said. The agency has designated the more transmissible variant a "variant of concern." Experts say the delta variant could also cause more severe disease in those infected, but more data is needed to be sure.

WASHINGTON — Vice President Kamala Harris is planning to visit the U.S.-Mexico border on Friday, the White House said Wednesday. After being tasked with addressing the root causes of immigration, Harris faced criticism from Republicans that she should visit the southern border and see conditions for herself. During Harris’ trip abroad earlier this month, she was asked repeatedly by journalists when she would make the trip. Former President Donald Trump is set to visit the southern border next week with a group of House Republican lawmakers who have been critical of Harris. “Listen, I care about what's happening on the border,” Harris told NBC Nightly News anchor Lestor Holt in an interview earlier this month in Guatemala.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden will replace the head of the Federal Housing Finance Agency with his own nominee, a White House official said on Wednesday after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling bolstered presidential powers over the agency. “In light of the Supreme Court’s decision today, the president is moving forward today to replace the current director with an appointee who reflects the administration’s values,” a White House official said.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrats in Congress and at the White House nudged Republicans on Wednesday to join them in forging an agreement on a $1.2 trillion infrastructure plan. Two senior Democrats said they expected Wednesday’s meetings to yield results in negotiations that began after Biden rejected a Republican infrastructure proposal just over two weeks ago. The White House team includes Biden’s legislative director Louisa Terrell and Steve Ricchetti, counselor to the president. Senate Budget Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders is working up a far more ambitious infrastructure blueprint of $6 trillion. That maneuver would require all 48 Democrats and the two independents that caucus with them to agree.
