- Kamala Haris has been blasted for not saluting the military
- According to some critics, she failed to follow her predecessors like Biden and Pence
- Meanwhile, those who criticised her include conservatives like Charlie Kirk and Bernard Kerik
Some conservatives have blasted Vice President Kamala Harris for appearing to break with precedent.
The United States of America vice president was accused of failing to salute the honour guard when boarding Air Force Two.
According to Fox News, former Vice President Mike Pence and President Biden regularly saluted the honour guard in the same situation.
Those who blasted the VP include Turning Point USA's Charlie Kirk and former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik.
Kerik wrote on Twitter:
"DISGRACEFUL: @VP Kamala Harris refuses to salute the honor guard at the steps of the aircraft. It is a clear demonstration of her dislike for those in uniform, both law-enforcement and military."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that months of taking over the mantle of responsibility, the administration of President Joe Biden was hailed for its policies, especially on immigration which allows citizens from other countries to be part of the US population.
Legit.ng recalls that Biden signed 17 executive orders right after his inauguration on Wednesday, January 20, to undo some of the things put in place by his controversial predecessor, Donald Trump.
Among top policies introduced by President Biden, 77, is the ban on Trump's travel restriction which largely targetted some countries in Africa and Asia.
In a related development, Legit.ng reported that Atiku Abubakar, former Nigerian vice president and 2019 general election presidential flagbearer, congratulated the duo of Biden and Kamala Harris on their inauguration as US president and vice respectively.
In a statement on his Facebook page, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain expressed confidence in Biden-Harris administration solidifying "America's regeneration and her reaffirmation as the beacon of democracy to the world."
Atiku, however, tabled three demands before the new administration, with the ex-VP urging the US to help Nigeria in the war against terror and insurgency in the northwest and northeast.
He said this should be done with the provision of "every type of support required to win our war against the insurgency we face and that threatens the peace of our sub-region.
