'Absolutely not': Americans weigh in on whether Kamala Harris can lead on AI after Elon Musk mocked her

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Vice President Kamala Harris wouldn’t be able to effectively run the White House’s response to artificial intelligence if she’s charged with leading it, some residents of the nation’s capital told Fox News. 

“I don’t know if Kamala Harris has the background and the tech knowledge to really get a grasp on what AI can do and what its capabilities are, to be able to wrangle it in a space that is safe for everyone and not just beneficial for large corporations,” Eric told Fox News.

But another D.C. local, Marlena, said: “I definitely trust her on the task force. She’s a brilliant woman, extraordinarily accomplished.”

She was the only person Fox News interviewed who had faith in Harris’ ability to handle the White House’s AI response.

Several D.C. residents echoed similar sentiments.

“I’m not sure I trust Kamala Harris to run point, but I certainly hope that she gets the job done,” Devonne said.

Jo said Harris should “absolutely not” lead the White House’s AI response “because I don’t believe she’s done a good job at all as vice president.”

Others said they can’t trust Harris to excel in AI since they haven’t seen her succeed in other areas.


“I would say no because I have no knowledge of what her track record is at this point of anything,” Keisha told Fox News.
