“You know, I, we, the president and I came in, you know, COVID had already started, it was, the pandemic had started. And when we came in we really couldn’t travel.”
Ms Harris added: “You know, a large part of the relationship that he and I have built has been being in this, you know, together in the same office for hours on end, doing Zooms or whatever because we couldn’t get out of DC.
