Biden: It would be 'great' to have a female vice president

Kamala Harris hit Biden hard at debates, and then flip flopped on the issue she beat him over Kamala Harris Labels Trump a 'Predator Living in the White House'

Such a chain reaction and the resulting chatter will no doubt help her catch up to former Vice President Joe Biden in the polls nationally. Biden said he was in favor of voluntary busing but opposed federally mandated busing.

In his CNN interview, Biden said he "wasn't prepared" for the attacks from Harris.

She criticised Mr Biden for recently highlighting his decades-old work with segregationist senators and his opposition to bussing students to school during the 1970s. And by the way, I think [Alexandria] Ocasio-Cortez is a brilliant, bright woman, but she won a primary. He also said he didn't expect to be faulted on issues of race, given his record on civil rights.

Speaking with Chris Cuomo on CNN, the former vice president threw shade at Ocasio-Cortez - arguing that her support of Medicare for all and other progressive stances can not win closely-contested elections in battleground states. Iowa is a key state for both candidates as they vie for the Democratic nomination.

On Thursday, Biden told reporters after seeing her latest comments that he believed the two agreed on the issue, and that he felt her critique had come out of nowhere. That's for him and his team to decide and to explain. Biden has had to defend that position, saying that he supported busing in response to de jure segregation - that is, segregation imposed by law. "But what she was pointing out was a very real disagreement on the record, ' Adams said on 'New Day" Friday.

Stepson of ex-PM to face money-laundering charges
Malaysia's new government has re-opened probes into 1MDB, and Najib went on trial in April over the allegations. The shares were among three 1MDB-linked assets sought by the DoJ in civil forfeiture suits filed in California.

But the former vice president argued that the entire debate between Harris and him over busing centered on 'how do you equalize education in every area.' On that measure, he said, he has the best plans, noting that he wants to triple funding for the most disadvantaged schools and have preschool available from age 3.

"I mean, what we should be debating what we do from here". This is what a presidential debate is.

Harris surged in public opinion polls after the debate, while Biden fell back. "I couldn't really tell from his interview".

Biden said he did not push those points as much during the debate to avoid "getting in that scrum".
